Prospect on the programme in Sierra Leone

In 2008, War Child will continue its community-based programmes in the Northern districts of Port Loko and Bombali and select new communities in these districts.

In 2008, we will investigate other potential fields of action, including the possibilities to support (street) children and youth in the slums of Freetown and expand our educational activities with non-formal education.
