The Village of Mapinda


EduNations has been partnering with the good people of Mapinda and surrounding villages since our founding in 2004.  With over 300 students between the Primary (Pre-K through Class 6) and Junior Secondary Schools (Classes 7-9) of this remote, rural community in the Bombali District, EduNations Hope Academy has become a standard bearer of education for the region.


With clean water wells attached to each school, EduNations is able to maintain a student body that is better than 50% girls (getting water is traditionally a responsibility of females in Sierra Leone).  And by keeping education “close to home” as opposed to traveling into the city of Makeni, the children are able to be safe and continue to contribute to their family’s farm.


You can empower a child, change a family and make a meaningful difference by sponsoring a student’s education for only $28 per month.
