EduNations builds and operates 13 schools in the rural, northern province districts of Bombali, Port Loko, Tonkolili and Koinadugu in Sierra Leone, West Africa.
EduNations is devoted to building schools to make education free and accessible to children who otherwise would not receive one. In Sierra Leone, many families go without food, or children are forced into prostitution or become petty thieves, to pay school fees. For just $35,000, a school can be built to serve 250 pupils in these remote areas. To sustain a school for a year it takes just $15,000 to cover teachers’ salaries, school supplies, uniforms, curriculum, and athletic activities. The building also serves as a community center where adults can receive health services and vocational training with the goal of making the school self sustaining.
