UK Prime Minister’s Special Envoy for Girl’s  assessment of Flagship Free Quality Education

The Government of Sierra Leone firmly believes that human capital development is the foundation for sustainable development and that investing in education is not only money well spent now, but for the future too.  Through the flagship "Free Quality School Education" programme, now combined with the National Policy for Radical Inclusion in Schools, we are committed to ensuring that all children in Sierra Leone – no matter their background, socio economic status, whether they are a parent learner, or have disabilities – will be able to gain an education and reach their potential.  There is much to do to achieve this goal but it can be done: by making this policy a reality, and working in collaboration with our partners.  It has been a pleasure to host the UK Prime Minister’s Special Envoy for Education, Helen Grant MP, this week and showcase the work we are doing to improve education for all children, including with support from the UK government.  I look forward to sharing Sierra Leone’s story – and reaffirming our commitment to education for all children - at the Global Education Summit in the summer.

Migrants as Messengers initiates an Inter-School Debate

The Migrant as Messengers with the support of IOM has initiated the Inter School Debate’ designed to promote migration awareness.

The first event held in Port Loko is a novelty featured four leading schools within the town ship. The objective according to MaM volunteers is to raise awareness of the pupils’ teachers and the community. School pupils between 18 and above are believed to be amongst the most vulnerable and represent a fertile and attractive target and ground for traffickers.  Port Loko situated close to   borderline is at the exit point to Guinea. And as such it offers easy access for smugglers and traffickers. Consequently, pupils that fall victims can easily be ferried across the borders using either the main exit or the plethora of routes within the border to start their irregular migration/Temple Run journey. It is said to have become a main hob and point of exit generally used by youths and their traffickers.

 The schools  selected for the debate were:-

1.Movement of Faith (MOF)

2. Roman Catholic Senior Secondary School

3.Islamic Senior Secondary School and

4.Schlenkar S Secondary School.
