Tuesday 22nd October 2019 (Fortnightly Edition)

Hallo again from Team-ei: We'll be jumping straight into what our network is up to as there is no news for this week. And as the wonderful wise, Grandma Hobsbawm would say, if you don't have anything to say, say nothing at all.

WE LOVE WE YONE CHILD

image

Ei’s Editorial Director Sophie Radice has partnered with We Yone Child, a tiny Sierra Leonean charity who have built two primary schools in the most neglected communities in the capital of Freetown.

Sophie says: “I worked with We Yone Child in 2018 to build a secondary school so that the amazing primary kids I met out there could continue their free education beyond the age of eleven. I managed to raise money through GoFundMe and a private donation from a philanthropist. The foundations and the first floor have been built but we still have a way to go to get the school finished for September 2020. We Yone Child is completely transparent with up to date financial reports and any donor has access to how their money is spent. See your donation go directly into bricks and mortar to build a future for the children of Sierra Leone!”.

Come on, eiNetwork: give it some wellie!!
