In their quest to promote the development of children in Sierra Leone, Angels to Angels Sierra Leone (A2A), a US based non-profit organization developed by a group of visionary women with the aim of improving educational opportunities for girls in Sierra Leone, has continued to manifest its commitment to empower the young generation of leaders in Sierra Leone.

The organization on Sunday 2nd February 2020 organized a one day empowerment training for secondary school pupils at Biz Bazaar in Freetown.

National Coordinator, Angels to Angels Sierra Leone, Saidu Sankoh, disclosed to this medium that as an organization one of their aims is to ensure they empower and support less privileged children in Sierra Leone.

He noted that the organization during the past 10 years has empowered and supported less privileged children in Sierra Leone, adding that currently the organization is supporting over 100 Girls nationwide, and that during their 10 years celebration the organization donated school items worth millions of Leones to 100 Girls across the country in 46 different schools in Freetown, Bo, Kenema, Tombo and Makeni. These items includes Text and Exercise Books, Uniforms, Bags of Rice etc.

He noted that the organization is striving to help break the cycle of poverty through education which provides opportunities for a better future for girls, and they seek to empower girls by providing them with educational scholarships which they have been doing for the past years.

He admonished the girls to make good use of the scholarship opportunity as many other children want such an opportunity, underscoring how education is the key to success and they should take their studies serious, adding that with education they will achieve their dreams and become great people in society.

Fatmata Conteh, one of the beneficiaries expressed deepest appreciation to the organization for the empowerment training adding that such a training will enhance their development as girls. She assured the organization that they will put into practice what they have learnt and also replicate them in their communities.

She called on the Government of Sierra Leone and other humanitarian organizations to support Angels to Angels Sierra Leone as they have manifested their commitment in the development of girls in the country.

She ended by admonishing participants to ensure that  they act as change makers in their different communities further enjoining them to make good use of the opportunity been given to them, adding that other girls in Sierra Leone are really challenged in terms of accessing education but said they have been fortunate to have such a support.
