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. There are currently three schools in the village of Rokassa – a nursery school for grades Pre-K through 3, a primary school for grades 4 through 6, and a junior secondary school for grades 7 through 9.  Where there was no opportunity for education, there is now a free school that includes well-paid and trained teachers, school supplies, uniforms and furniture.  We have also a clean water well, latrines, solar lights, a church, a pavilion, a medical clinic, and a guest house. In the near future, we hope to add an “in residence” senior secondary school that will serve all of our EduNations students in grades 9-12 from each of our different villages.  To do that we will need to build dormitories for our students so that they have a place to stay during the school year.

EduNations has also recently started the “Pa Santigie Community Garden” as an agricultural sustainability project to support the schools in the village.
