The Swawou School Foundation is a registered charity providing free quality education in a child friendly learning environment to disadvantaged girls from the Swawou community of Kenema town, eastern Sierra Leone. We provide a nurturing and safe place to learn, where the girls have the support and encouragement they need to stay in education.

The needs of the children are at the heart of how we operate. We believe that simple solutions can make a big difference, and so have adopted many simple strategies that ensure our students have the best experience possible and are set up for a successful future. 

We depend on the generous support of people like you to make our work possible. By making a one-off gift or becoming a regular supporter, you will be helping us to ensure a brighter and more independent future for the girls and women of Sierra Leone.
