New roofs completed!
Since April 2023 Sierra Leone Mission (SLM) has so far provided money to construct new roofs for five schools in Sierra Leone.
The village children at Fogbo came together as a 'school' for many years in a local church, which was later deemed unsuitable by the Government Education Board. As a result the villagers came together to make bricks and provide labour to build a new school, which has now been roofed by SLM.
By God's grace, the Muslim villagers in Kamakonthakay came together to build Christian church, which is now thriving. Following which they supplied materials and labour for the construction of a new school building, with SLM providing money for its roof, which is looking very fine indeed!
Kabala is another Muslim village where a small school was established in a private house until the anti-Christian owner threatened immediate eviction. Again with God's grace, the decision was delayed until a new school could be constructed. The village made a gift of the land, and the community have completed the new school building, with another very fine roof supplied by SLM!
Secondary school children were meeting in the village of Mabang in an erected ‘structure’ which was condemned due to its poor condition. Once again, the villagers made bricks for the construction of a new school and once again SLM gave them funding for its roof!
May this wonderful work continue in helping Sierra Leone's children to receive the education they deserve in fully habitable school buildings!
Appeal for Tombo!
The existing school in Tombo is insufficient to say the least. It is too small to accommodate the number of children attending and in a dreadful state of dilapidation, with a leaking roof that allows water to pour in. Since we posted an appeal for donations to help to finance the cost of a new roof - or a complete new building - money has been steadily coming in. That is wonderful news and SLM send huge thanks to all of the donors. We pray that this generosity will continue and it will not be long before we can publish a photograph of a new school building, complete with a new roof and some very grateful children!
