Beginning in 1991, the west African country of Sierra Leone  experienced a brutal 10 year (+) civil war. Today, the children of Sierra Leone are still victims of the aftermath. 70% of the population in the country  are living in poverty, and 48% of children age  5-14 years of age are involved in child labor. While in many parts of the world, secondary education is free (6th - 12th grade), children in Sierra Leone are responsible for paying their own school fees along with  additional cost. This leaves many children unable to obtain a secondary education. We know solving this problem will be a work in progress, but in 2014 our goal is to raise funds to allow 1,500 students the opportunity to obtain an education.
