One of the activities that is unique in Sierra Leone to EducAid's schools is the Community Service. All secondary students undertake a two week period of community service each year. They go into schools and hospitals around their area and often serve too in our own primary school in Maronka.
It is an opportunity for our young people to enjoy the experience of giving. It can be hard work being on the receiving end of charity all the time! The chance to put back and help others is dignifying and rewarding. It was wonderful the other day, therefore, to receive this letter from a primary school where our students help out.
Well done to all the young people who have been part of helping these little ones achieve this success.
