Like parents everywhere, the parents in Sierra Leone want a better life for their children. And they know that the primary access to that life will come through education. The majority of children hoping to enroll in school in Sierra Leone were born during the conflict, raised during the conflict, and have known the toils of war firsthand. They survived. And their survival deserves our recognition and warrants our assistance.

The Gondobay Manga Foundation will be building primary schools in the Bo Region, first in Njala Kendima–breaking ground in February 2007–then in neighboring villages. The construction of a high school for the region will follow and discussions have begun regarding how TGMF and other interested parties can assist in returning Fourah Bay College to its glory days, the days when Sierra Leone was known as “the Athens of Africa.”
