Education

We have adopted schools in Yonibana to provide educational sponsorship to students from secondary to graduate level. Allowing them to have a livelihood and support their future families.

We have a sponsorship scheme in place and continue to support professional development, ranging from doctors, nurses, health workers, social workers, electricians, carpenters, plumbers, accountants, teachers and agriculturalists. More than a decade after the construction of Yonibana Sai Hospital, we are now expanding the hospital to ensure it meets the growing needs of the communities that depend on it.

Support us as we strive to build futures in rural Sierra Leone through the transformative power of education. At Better Lives Foundation, we believe in the importance of community work and recognize the pivotal role education plays in uplifting communities and changing lives. In Sierra Leone, the education gap is a stark reality that hinders the potential of the youth. Our mission is to bridge this gap, providing Educational Sponsorship and support to students who aspire to better education but lack the means. By investing in youth and supporting education, we aim to transform lives and empower minds.
