Urgent Covid-19 Appeal
We had hoped that Africa might be spared the turmoil of COVID-19, but sadly, that will not be the case. Sierra Leone’s first case of the coronavirus was confirmed 31st March. EducAid’s experience through Ebola has prepared us well for what is to come, but it also means we know all-too-well the harsh realities ahead.
We need your help so we can:
- Keep EducAid students with nowhere else to go safe and learning at the schools they call home
- Continue to pay EducAid staff – while their job descriptions may change, there is much work to be done and even more when schools reopen – this is an opportunity to train and prepare for the enormous setbacks our students will have to overcome when they return to us.
- Make sure learning continues across Sierra Leone in innovative ways that reach as many communities and children as possible. EducAid has built an incredible network and is a trusted name in Sierra Leone.
- Ensure our schools are not only ready to reopen and programmes ready to continue, but that they reopen even stronger to meet the changing needs of the children and schools we serve.
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.
