Education is one of the basic rights in a child’s life. But too often though, children dropped out of secondary education without basic reading skills.
Defence for Children International Sierra Leone addresses education by working to ensure that every child is able to read and write and that schools are places where children are safe and happy.
2,400 CHILDREN helped to read well by the time they leave secondary school.
10 SCHOOLS developed BYE LAWS to ensure the place where children learn supports their development.
10,000 PARENT and caregivers developed a culture of learning out of school through our learning centres in Bombali and Kenema districts.
Achievements made possible from July 2015 to October 2016 with the support of Bayern Tree Foundation.
