sierra leonean schools

Last Friday I visited five primary schools, some rural and some urban.  Two were right at the heart of what was rebel headquarters during the war.  Maybe one of the schools had a decent number of textbooks: all the rest had been robbed at some point.  One head teacher showed me the former lock to her office, mangled and broken.  Another emptied a box of broken padlocks onto her desk, explaining why the textbooks were being stored in a teacher’s home.  Here are some snapshots.
