SGUW Year 1 Brought Strong Growth, Building a Foundation for the Future

Since early 2021, SGUW has taken important steps launching our first educational and community support programs in Salone. These include providing vulnerable school girls health and hygiene kits, providing food supplies to families effected by fire, working with market sellers and celebrating Day of the African Child by giving sanitation stations to schools. We completed our ambitious community assessments and needs surveys in the region. Our Bo Town Director, Tewoh Karimu continues to build partnerships and deepen our community engagement. And Freetown Director Sonia Koroma has broadened our work to include the Crabtown school and recruited two assistants to help in the capital.
