The forgotten generation project  

The forgotten generation project addresses the educational needs of thousands of Sierra Leonean children and youths whose education and development was hindered by the long war. Now in their teens most of these youths are facing a bleak future; without education and any meaningful skills to sustain life.

The primary target of this project is young girls, girls' mothers, survivors of sexual violence and exploitation, war orphans, ex-combatants, young girls with disabilities, and vulnerable  girls who lose out on their education and the opportunity to develop vital life skills during the war. It aims to:
 Provide computer educational and training to young girls and women affected by conflict
 Improve access to good quality education resulting in skills that enhance life opportunities and employment
 Enhance both the quality of education offered to young women in the classroom eg teaching maths English and development studies and its applicability to a post-educational career and life opportunities
 Create opportunities for young women for personal growth outside the classroom through community-based service and leadership initiatives
 Encourage young women affected by conflict to continue to engage with their own communities and mentor the next generation of young girls

This project is being implemented by CEDCOW Sierra Leone and UK with technical and financial support of CEDCOW partners, private individuals and some charities. For more information or to obtain further information about the project, please contact Mr Abu  Kamara on info.sierraleone@cedcow.org or Mr Columbus Ndeloa on info@cedcow.org
