As education is paramount to the development of any nation, the All Works of Life (AWOL) – Sierra Leone, yesterday June 16th 2010 embarked on a philanthropic venture in promoting schools around the Freetown municipality.

The AWOL team, in a determined mood to promote education in this country, started their first tour at the Mabella Municipal Primary School, a slum settlement, east of Freetown. While at the ‘Mabella’ School, the AWOL members distributed books, pens, pencils, school bags and other relevant learning materials. The pragmatic and dedicated members then later on moved to another school, the FAWE Primary School, Kroo Bay which is also a slum dwelling settlement in the western part of Freetown.
In his key note address to recipients of these learning materials, the Chairman of the Organization (AWOL), Honorable Chernor Bah (Chericoco) stated that if Sierra Leone is to be developed, the developmental moves must start with the deprived children down there.
Adding his voice to the occasion, Vice Chairman of AWOL, Anthony Navo Jr, who is another household name in this country, noted that there would be no illiterates in this country if only Sierra Leoneans can embark on such efforts in boosting the capacity of schools in Sierra Leone.
Mr. Navo assured his audience that their effort in promoting schools will not be limited to Freetown alone, but would be extended to other towns and villages countrywide.
While receiving the learning materials on behalf of FAWE, the principal of the school, Mrs. Emerica Y. Kamara lavished praises on AWOL for their invaluable effort in promoting her school and others around the country. She said, they the administrators of FAWE have been yearning for such an opportunity to come their way, and now their dream has come true.
“We will make judicious use of the materials and ensure that pupils access them,” she ended.
