We would like to express our sincere thanks and appreciation to you for coming out to support a great cause despite the rain - making Education for Hope a priority.

Kelly Vocational School
The Kelly Rural Vocational Agricultural Secondary School in Hastings, Sierra Leone approached Education for Hope for assistance to build a fence around the school perimeter to prevent burglary and vandalism of its properties and assets. The school toilet facility is being used by unwelcome guests and people from the neighboring communities, leaving it filthy and destroying its components. Over the years, the school has faced multiple break-ins, resulting in property damage and loss of valuable educational resources.
The Three Communities Primary School

Three years ago, we were approached by three communities in the Port Loko District, Sierra Leone, for assistance to build a primary school for their communities, because they had none and their children had to walk many miles to attend the nearest school. The children that were not strong enough to embark on the treacherous journey to the nearest school simply did not attend, which left approximately 150 children without access to education.
