About Us

Who We Are 

 

Education First S/L is a nonprofit organization established to improve the educational achievement of the youths of Sierra Leone, West Africa. The ten year civil war totally decimated the educational infrastructure of this small nation. School buildings were the outposts of rival  fighting factions. School remained closed for years and an entire generation were denied the chance to attend school.

Education First S/L intends to supplement the current steps in place to bring cutting edge  educational standards  to the doorsteps of schools in Sierra Leone. We are committed to the total eradication of illiteracy for all of Sierra Leone’s children.
