The first School in a Bag project under our own umbrella.
Project 1 – Sent 400 SchoolBags to 2 orphanages and 1 school in Freetown and Kamikwe. The Schoolbags were funded by 4 local schools near the SIAB HQ and they were shipped to Sierra Leone in a minibus. The minibus is now used commercially and it generates enough income to sustain the living costs of 40 orphan children.
Project 2 – SIAB funded a container filled with 1,550 SchoolBags and resources for 11 schools. One of the schools in Freetown has become the Piers Simon School.
