Primary school boarding house

The project aims to construct and equip the first floor of a boarding house for a primary school in the village of Magbenteh. The primary education facility aims to provide accommodation for orphans and vulnerable children from the community and catchment areas, which were severely affected by the Ebola outbreak in 2014 and 2015. The project ultimately aims to contribute to the recovery of the region, by giving the children an opportunity to get a solid start in life. The Government of Sierra Leone District Authorities has committed to take over the boarding school facility in 2022.
