Schools reopened in Sierra Leone in September, and as we are supporting 50 orphans and 4 Ebola survivors as a result of the Ebola crisis it was a busy time for SLWT, more of that later on in this newsletter.
SLWT also continues to support 60 talented but underprivileged girls in secondary schools, as part of our FAWE scholarship support programme, to ensure that they have the opportunity to fulfill their potential.
November 7th 2016 will mark the 1st anniversary of the end of the Ebola outbreak declaration in Sierra Leone. SLWT plans to mark this with a series of events and to launch a fund raising campaign, The Hope For Tomorrow appeal, which allows you to join in with your own individual fundraising event.
Also in September, Andrew Hatzis, a volunteer sponsored by his company CEB, spent a week with SLWT in Sierra Leone helping with building our local capacity.
In this edition of the newsletter we will update you on these events and also show you how you can support SLWT simply by shopping online!
Lastly SLWT would like a volunteer to be our digital content manager. The role will involve working on our digital strategy, making sure that the content on our website is up to date, updated in a timely manner, working and that our digital output is coordinated. Please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org if you are interested.
We thank you, once again, for your continued support. Long may that continue!
