Emergency Flood Appeal
The floods in Freetown on 14th August 2017 have killed hundreds and displaced thousands. Several members of our staff have lost everything they own, and we are still waiting to hear from hundreds of our students. The Lumley compound is safe, but we are working hard to coordinate efforts to ensure the safety of students and staff in the tough days, weeks and months ahead.
EducAid runs an educational network comprising of free schools, teacher training, and tertiary programmes in Sierra Leone. We provide distinctive, personalised, top-quality, holistic education and support to vulnerable young Sierra Leoneans.
We are a UK registered charity which believes that the education of young men and women is essential to: unlock human potential, overcome poverty, improve wellbeing, build democracy, and that it is the cornerstone of stable development. Our vision is a democratic, dignified and prosperous Sierra Leone, where poverty is eliminated by educated citizens who are able to develop their personal, social and economic wellbeing.
EducAid is a values-led organisation; we take pride in our values, and work to ensure that our staff and beneficiaries truly work toward to the vision we are trying to achieve in Sierra Leone. EducAid builds on the foundation of quality education in an environment of equality. In a country where gender equality is so disproportionately biased against women, we ensure that our pupils are treated identically, no matter their gender.
EducAid is unique in Sierra Leone in that it aims to empower Sierra Leoneans to build a better future for themselves, from the bottom up.
