In Newton, 105 children have lost parents and are now being looked after by single parents, extended family or friends. Many of these people are working or have other things which keep them from full time childcare. There is no such things as a ‘State Benefits’ system in Sierra Leone – you have to work to stay alive.
We need your help now. Can you help us to raise £10,000 to build a new ‘Preschool’? This school will provide care during daytime hours. The Committee in Newton (Olney Newton Link) have told us that it’s desperately needed.
The scheme proposes that a building will be constructed (sketch above) to accommodate 105 children. There will be 3 rooms (20x30ft) with a large covered veranda, staff room/ office and store room (10x15ft). At the present rate of exchange, it is expected to cost approximately £10,000 to build – not a large amount compared to UK prices!
Please help! It’s desperately needed – lives have been devastated.
