Education for All
Founded by a family, the school gives children in Sierra Leone (West Africa) access to quality education in a safe and fun learning environment
Built by Hand Brick by Brick by Local Craftsmen
Sierra Leone International Academy opened its doors September 13, 2016, in Makeni, Sierra Leone (West Africa). The project was funded by a family of Sierra Leoneans and Americans that believe education is a means to eradicating poverty. The school uses a combination of best practices and curriculum from Sierra Leone and the United States with a focus on Math, Science, and Technology.
P.E.A.C.E. Missions partners with the school to provide scholarships, capacity-building of staff and through the generous support of donors, ships furniture, medical and school supplies from the United States.
We are training adults in America and Sierra Leone
Helping children explore culture through art music and food.
The peace council provides a forum for youth from different ethnic, socioeconomic, racial and cultural backgrounds, to explore and learn about cultures other than their own, through art, music, food and interactive games, thereby expanding their view of the world and themselves. Youth are also encouraged to challenge stereotypical thinking and learn to become advocates of tolerance and peace. A multicultural event, which ends the workshop, includes parents’ participation and requires youth to show their ability to adapt and work in multicultural teams.
