The Empowering Children and Youth School was founded on April 5, 2009 by Ibrahim A Kamara. It is the school’s mission to minimize the high level of illiteracy in Sierra Leone and to offer a free education to children in poverty who cannot afford to further their education. The school started with just two two students who previously had dropped out of school and today there are 200 pupils attending. It is our hope that it will continue growing

Ibrahim started this school “because the conditions here for our children are desperate and I felt I needed to do something. I am not happy with the way many of these children are living their lives or earning their living, but how can I stop them when I am not strong enough to provide for them? I encourage them to become educated. It is the gift I can offer them.”
