Sierra Leone is located on the West Coast of Africa and is one of the poorest countries in the world. The country endured an 11 year civil war (1991-2002) which destroyed much of the infrastructure and had a very negative impact on the child population. Generations of school teachers and school children were either killed or displaced or quite simply not able to attend school because of the war. Many children grew up without schooling and there is an educational gap left as a result of the war. The road to recovery will be slow and we believe that we have the responsibility to do our bit to ensure that things improve as quickly as they can for the generations which are growing in a stable but very poor environment.
