We report on our Sierra Leone education programs throughout the year and how your gifts are spent to meet objectives. In the end, we should be judged by results and community impact.
We’re so grateful for your support and want to celebrate these results with all of you who helped make them happen.

We’re committed to supporting the key long-term solution – getting more trained teachers.
For students today who’ve come up in current schools without enough trained teachers, CCET-SL offers the tutorial programs. Extra classes, focusing on core subjects, prepare 9th and 12th graders in advance of their national exams.
It’s not fast, or easy. But your continuing support is paying off.
Because of you, there’s more kids in secondary school and advancing into higher education than ever. With your support, more of these young people get the opportunity to complete higher education programs.
I think you’ll join me in a big round of applause for our partner CCET-SL and their tireless work in developing and expanding all these programs.
