Wilde Ganzen sponsors the schools in Yele – Sierra Leone
Last year we started a new project with the aim to provide 5 schools in Yele good basic facilities such as toilets, separate classrooms, waterproof roof linings and school resources. We have estimated that we need 110,000 EURO and the first 12,000 Euro has been in and is complemented by the Wild Geese to a total of 18,000 EURO. This amount is transferred to our partner organization Lionheart INGO and they started with the construction of toilet blocks. In addition, we have already received commitments for a total of 35,000 EURO.
There are several actions have started to reap the remaining amount;
– AOC Doetichem doing a school project
– Nieuwjaarsduik Jump for Yele
– Various Donation recruitment
Smarter Hospital is sponsoring hospitals and schools in Sierra Leone.
In the province of Yele are five schools, two high and three elementary schools.
At present there is contact with Maria Estrella from Yele to get an overview of supplies needed for the three primary schools.
Eventually one of the three primary schools will be sponsored.
As a first action the project “Shoe boxes” has been set up.
The primary school Werkhof in Werkhoven is currently making shoeboxes for children in Yele.
These shoe boxes are filled with daily necessities for the children, such as body care products, toys and learning materials.
This teaches the children at the Werkhof school to share with other children who are in desperate need.
Currently there are already 8 shoeboxes sent to Yele. They travelled in the container, sent by the Lion Heart Foundation. These 8 show what the project entails and is a preview of more to come.
The first 8 shoe boxes are made and filled by family and friends.
