Location: Makeni, Sierra Leone
Beneficiaries: 50 children and their families
Grant from Harambee: $21,805
Year: 2016

The Pre-School is located in an area on the outskirts of the city of Makeni and is the only center for the development and socialization of preschool children in a country in which 42% of its inhabitants are under 14 years of age. During the post-ebola, the need to return to a normal life and share with others has increased, and with it, the increased need to support families, ensuring an adequate response to the needs of education and health for children. In this context, strengthening the educational structure is the first step to improve and expand services for children and their families.

The project includes:

  • Improvements in equipment and facilities of the kitchen and canteen
  • Improvement and purchase of school furniture
  • Acquisition of recreational and educational material
  • Development of educational activities for 8 hours a day
  • Food service and health monitoring
