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.

Fintonia

The Tombaka Chiefdom, in the very northern territory of the Bombali District, may be among the most remote and difficult to reach areas of Sierra Leone.  This village is located in a community widely recognized by the government of Sierra Leone to be among the least developed in the country.

Rokassa

The Village of Rokassa, in the Massimera Chiefdom of the Port Loko District, is EduNation’s most developed community.  This remote and rural community of the Temne People has had no access to education since before the Blood-Diamond War, until now.

Mayatta

The very poor village of Mayatta is about five miles further north of the village of Mapainda (where EduNations has Primary and Junior Secondary Schools).  EduNations “inherited” this neglected Primary School from the village leadership and has been working hard to upgrade and improve the quality of education of “the least of these.”

Makump-Kapath

The small village of Makump-Kapath, in the Kholifa Rowalla Chiefdom of the Tonkolili District, is another part of the EduNations family. When we were first introduced to them, these desperately poor, rural groups of villages has built their own “mud block” school.
