First Phase of School Building in Robis Completed
The Jeneba Project has completed the first of phase of the secondary school construction process in Robis, Sierra Leone. Our aim is that the school will be free of charge and students will have the opportunity of obtaining a quality education without worrying about some the constraints that usually keep them out of school. We have launched a new fundraising effort in order for us to complete the school on time for the 2014 academic year. We have endeavored to keep you updated on every aspect of the project in various forms. Please read our report above and click on the link to view pictures from the field in Sierra Leone.

National Symposium on Memory and Remembrance
On January 18th, 2013, the Jeneba Project, in collaboration with the Sierra Leone Memory Project, hosted a National Symposium on Memory and Remembrance for Secondary School Students in Sierra Leone. The Symposium brought together secondary school students in Sierra Leone to learn about the civil war, understand the parameters of Memory and Remembrance in post-conflict settings, share experiences and discuss ways of confronting the challenges presented by the post-conflict situation in Sierra Leone. The aim was to present the future generation with the opportunity of understanding the civil war in order to prevent some of the failures that culminated into a decade of violent expressions in our country.

The Jeneba Project has unveiled the final report of its current activities in Sierra Leone. The report covers the successful purchase of one acre land in Robis, Northern Sierra Leone, for a future high school and other infrastructure for programs and activities. The Jeneba Project was also registered as an official Nongovernmental Organization (NGO) in Sierra Leone. The report also covers the successful launching of the Sierra Leone Memory Project (SLMP), an oral history project intended to serve as a platform for justice by granting an avenue to the voice of those who survived the Sierra Leonean civil war between 1991-2002. More information on the SLMP is available on the Memory page of the Jeneba Project site. We are grateful for your continuous support! Please click here to read the full Report.
