Please Help us Save Rogbere Primary School

The primary school in the village of Rogbere, Sierra Leone is in terrible condition!  The walls are cracked and the roof has fallen into some of the classrooms. It is not a suitable place to keep chickens, yet over 200 children attend the school!  Many are severely mentally and physically disabled orphans.  Some are amputees and some are in wheelchairs, but there isn't even a ramp to get them into the classrooms.  There was no clean water or usable toilets. After our visit to Sierra Leone in August, we called a meeting of the chiefs and elders of the village to see how Build on Books can help.  The community is ready to mobilise and get the work done to make the building safe and usable.  Please help us buy the essential materials such as concrete, timber and zinc to rehabilitate the school and we will soon make this a decent place for children to learn. We have already sent Rogbere Primary School, books, learning materials desks and chairs.  All we need now is your help to complete the build.

Please donate to help us buy the necessary materials such as concrete, timber and zinc so make this school a safe place for children to learn. Every penny raised will be used to help this school. We are an all-volunteer charity working at grassroots level to help schools and communities in Sierra Leone. Over the years we have supported many schools in urgent need of help. This has made a huge difference to thousands of children's education and well being.
