Schools for Salone partners with local villages in Sierra Leone, West Africa, to rebuild the schools devastated in the ten-year civil war that ended in 2002. They have built 18 schools and 3 libraries since 2005. Once funds are raised, new schools are built in three months. They have also trained teachers at intensive summer institutes. Steve has a particular interest in Sierra Leone as he served in one of the early Peace Corps groups there, doing community development work from 1965-1967. He recently organized his fellow PCV’ers to donate to SFS.
