Beneficiaries

The beneficiaries for the Kanga Schools projects are schools sponsored by an individual - usually a former student now in Australia, or perhaps a member of the Kanga Schools  team living in Sierra Leone.

Each school is provided with a plaque to display that it is a "Kanga School". Awards in the form of medals are engraved and sent from Australia, and students compete for the Kanga medal which is presented to a student of merit each year.

Other beneficiaries of this project include three technical colleges, medical and nursing schools, and the major libraries in Freetown, Bo and Kenema.
