Evariste’s Leadership footprint in Sierra Leone
After over years of service to Plan International Sierra Leone we say goodbye to our Country Director, Evariste Sindayigaya, and wish him all the best for the future. It truly has been a journey of transformation. “You have done a great work in our life and I assure you your legacy will be continued by us young people. My message to all change makers out there is – I want you all to be like Evariste, to have an open-door policy for young people.” – Paulina, IT Intern and Girls Out Loud Member
Providing daily, free school meals
The Integrated School Feeding Programme (ISFP) supports over 1,300 pre and primary schools in 6 districts in Sierra Leone. This means over 301,000 children including 152,500 girls are targeted to receive school meals at lunchtime. Thanks to the funding from the Government of Sierra Leone, through the Ministry of Basic and Senior Secondary Education, and with financial contribution from Plan International Canada it creates a social safety net for vulnerable children, families, and communities, increasing children’s access, retention and completion of education.
Girls, in all their diversity, have the right to make active choices about their bodies
Did you know that Sierra Leone is one of six West African countries that are part of the My Health, My Rights project, co-funded by the European Union? This project focuses on making sure young people, especially girls and young women have access to sexual reproductive health services and exercise their sexual and reproductive health rights (SRHR). One significant highlight of the project is the mobile journalism training for youth. This approach empowers young individuals to effectively hold others accountable, communicate their messages, and advocate for important causes such as access to Sexual and Reproductive Health and Rights.
