Kanga Schools
Kanga Schools is a charitable project whose primary aim as a Christian outreach is to assist village schools in Sierra Leone with the provision of educational materials.

One of the first casualties of the 10-year civil war in Sierra Leone was education. Kanga Schools aims to assist at the grass roots by equipping the new generations with access to computers, books to read and a chance to learn.

The Kanga Schools project links Australia and Sierra Leone. It recycles books and computers to a country in need.

And in just a few years, it is having a huge impact on the children in Sierra Leone, West Africa.
