  • Thank you for coming to our fund raising page.
  • Extra Mile is a small charity based in Rugby, Warwickshire, UK.
  • Our only employees are our local teachers in Sierra Leone. Our trustees do not receive expenses. Our volunteers are self-financing. Our overheads are minimal.
  • For over ten years we have been supporting local schools with volunteer teachers and teacher training.
  • We are also building a free new school and community library for desperately poor girls and boys in Goderich, a suburcb of Freetown, Sierra Leone.
  • Having raised £61,000 we were able to construct the First Phase and in September 2016 we opened with 50 pupils and increased to 80 in 2017.
  • Our plan is to construct our Second Phase of four additional classrooms, a computer lab, a staff room, and more girls and boys and staff toilets starting January 2019 to enable us to grow to 200 girls and boys.
  • There are several ways in which you can help us:
  1. Make a general donation
  2. Make a monthly donation
  3. Hold a fundraising event
  4. Contribute to one of our campaigns - please see our campaign pages.
