The Jeneba Project has
received a $4000.00 grant from the Stuart Family Foundation, based in Lake
Forest, Illinois, toward its education projects in Sierra Leone. The Jeneba
Project will use the new grant for its current secondary school building
project for girls in Robis, Sierra Leone.
The Jeneba Project
appreciates the Stuart Family Foundation’s interest in the advancement of
education, and this grant will strengthen our work of providing free
fundamental education for the children of Sierra Leone.
Sierra Leoneans have
endured several years of suffering, ranging from a decade-long civil war and
Ebola to a recent catastrophic mudslide in Freetown. These predicaments, in
addition to corruption, make the country one of the least literate in the
world. The country has a national literacy rate of 48 percent. The
Jeneba Project is helping to improve this situation by building libraries,
schools, and providing scholarships to secondary school girls.
