Sierra Leone Projects

Replenishing Libraries (Dick Simpson) - Sierra Leone

Sierra Leone is still recovering from the devastation of a ten-year civil war. One-third of the country had to flee, thousands were murdered, as many as 10,000 had limbs chopped off in a most brutal manner, and child soldiers had their childhood and education stolen from them. In 2014, the country was hit with the Ebola outbreak from which it is still recovering. Improving access to books and to education is key to the future of the country.
