Hope Academy For Girls (HAFG) is a formal six years of Junior and Senior Secondary School for girls. Targeted girls are those who are on the verge of dropping out of school due to underachieved grades, financial constraints, abuse or exploitation. These risk factors form part of the criteria and selection process for new intakes.
Hope Academy for Girls is the only all-girls school in the peninsular, and the only school to provide free school meals as well. The school has been in operation since 2017 under the direction of Mrs. Aliea Kamara, founder and Principal of Hope Academy for Girls.
The school is located in York Village on the Peninsular Circular Road in the Western Area Rural District. It serves five communities in this area. The school works in close partnership with the local communities, providing support and resources for community initiatives e.g. water access, community meeting space, adult literacy programs, and community engagement sessions.
There continues to exist a striking gender gap in education in Sierra Leone. Roughly 60 percent of girls who enter Primary School do not make it to Secondary School.
This disparity exists for a number of reasons, including:-.
Without equity in education the distribution of wealth will remain skewed, particularly against women. There is a desperate need for well-rounded education which empowers girls in Sierra Leone to achieve their highest potential. Such that they can be assured of a more prosperous future.
A gift of any size helps us to provide the facilities, resources and educators needed to make this school an effective and efficient learning environment for the girls and community of the western rural region of Sierra Leone. Because we are a grassroots organisation, run entirely by indigenous Sierra Leoneans, 100% of donations received goes towards the school.
Hope Academy for Girls operates under a registered charity status in Sierra Leone (charity number 321/6112914/2013).
If you share Our Dream, we welcome your donations towards the operation of the school.
