About
Education For All

Welcome to the website of the NGO “Education For All” in Sierra Leone.

We are proud to share the work we have been doing since 2004 in rural villages in Sierra Leone. Education plays a pivotal role in the development of these  rural villages, offering a foundation for sustainable growth and empowerment. Education is the seed of transformation. It is the cornerstone upon which the aspirations of the village rest, a beacon of hope that promises a brighter future.

Education is more than just literacy; it’s a drive for change, providing the tools for individuals to shape their destiny and, in turn, the destiny of their village. It’s a legacy that will echo through generations, fostering a world where every child, regardless of their birthplace, has the opportunity to reach for the stars.

 

Thank you for your interest and support .

I will be happy to answer your questions or to provide you with further information .

Our aim
is to provide access to quality education for all children, regardless of their gender or socio-economic background.

We understand
that educating children also involves providing them with basic necessities such as food, water, and healthcare. Therefore, we work towards providing holistic development opportunities to them. 

We believe
that education is the key to unlocking the potential of every child, and we are committed to making that a reality for the children of Sierra Leone.
