Teacher? Why Sierra Leone Needs Your Help, How To Help, & What To Expect While Volunteer Teaching
Sierra Leone is a war-torn, poverty-stricken country in West Africa that has been plagued with disaster after disaster. After recovering from a relatively recent civil war that plagued the country from 1991-2002, the country was once again struck by crisis in 2014 when the ebola virus spread through the nation and left a death toll of 3,000 and affected over 10,000 of the countries citizens. In January of 2016, the Ebola epidemic has finally ceased, but the country is still plagued with poverty and illiteracy.
