Project1808 promotes sustainable community development in Kabala, Koinadugu District, Sierra Leone. Our ultimate goal is to revive and sustain the spirit of optimism, hope, creativity, and innovation, while building capacity and empowering communities to achieve sustainable livelihoods. The core of our sustainable community model is investing in disadvantaged youths, schools and their communities to form the building blocks of healthy communities in Sierra Leone and Africa. We engage and connect students, teachers, community members through small, targeted projects that address disconnects between learning and community problem-solving. By linking youth education to community needs in the most disadvantaged regions, we hope to enhance creativity, innovation and develop a rising generation of wise, practical, and compassionate leaders.
