Supporting primary "community" education in the province of Wara Wara
    Bafodea, one of the most deprived areas of Sierra Leone, Africa.

-   Because in the Human Development Index (HDI),
    2011 UN ranked 180 of 187 nations.
-   Because 60 of 100 adults (aged 15 +) are illiterate.
    In Spain 2 out of 100
-   Because 1 in 5 children dies before age 5 from
     malnutrition and other diseases.
-   Because 1 in 100 women die in childbirth. In Spain 6
    in 100,000
-   Because it was at war from 1991 to 2002
-   Because life expectancy at birth is 47.8 years, while
    in Spain is 81 years.
-   Because 63% of the population lives on less than $
    1.25 a day.
-   Because the project developer (Marcos Portillo
    Armenteras) has previously developed education
    initiatives in the country and knows the reality very
    well and how to impact on it in a positive way.

-   Because it is one of the country's poorest
    provinces. It has 30,000 inhabitants spread over
    some 150 villages.
-   Because it is north of the country, in a
    mountainous area of difficult access. There are
    no paved roads and present steep slopes. No
    phones or internet coverage. There are only 2
    cars in the whole province and belong to the
    king.                                              Wara Wara Bafodea
-   Because the primary school enrollment rate is
    one of the lowest in the country and school
    absenteeism exceeds the national average.
-   Because 16 of the 31 (52%) schools in the
    province have been developed by the villagers
    (communities) as the government fails to
    address the existing schooling needs.
-   Because there are no hospitals. The area is
    served by two nurses and a paramedic.

This past July, Marcos Portillo, project developer
moved to the province of Wara Wara Bafodea for
3 weeks to perform a thorough study on primary
education.




                                                      He met with local leaders, visited and
                                                      studied the 31 existing primary schools
                                                      (16 community and 15 government),
                                                      interviewed each of the teachers and
                                                      administrators. With all this information
                                                      gathered made ​a diagnosis of the reality
                                                      by identifying critical needs and setting
                                                      priorities for action.

1. School must be Alive: There must be a high
percentage of children attending regularly and
teachers must be truly committed to the education of
students.


2. Isolation:       We will work in schools that are in
remote locations.


3. Number of Students:                   We want to
impact the schools with more students.


4. Degree of community
involvement: The villagers must have
demonstrated interest in working for their own
existing schools.

Estimated period of project implementation: 2 years from October 2012.

   WORKING METHOD

    1. Market Research and Data Analysis: diagnosis of reality. Made in July 2012

    2. Self Development Meetings: The heart of the project.

         The promoter of the project will work with the 8 chosen schools every two weeks (see diagram on
         the next slide). He will meet with the entire population of the villages, the true protagonists of the
         project, in the self developing encounters. With his guidance, the villagers will:

            Express themselves about the status of their school, the needs, their problems.
            Evaluate what local resources, free or not, are there at their disposal in order to support
           the school, for example, human resources, sand, stones and other.
            Set up goals: the community agrees to undertake certain activities for their school in the
           next two weeks (until the following self development meeting).
            Self monitor the fulfillment of the goals in the due date.

  As seen in the table, in every village will hold a self development meeting every two weeks.


3. The population is set to work with his own hands, using local resources, to ensure the
attainment of the objectives every two weeks. Examples: repairing a wall, fell trees to build furniture,
traditional construction of latrines, others.


4. Identification of leaders and villages devoted to the construction of their
school. The project sponsor throughout the weeks of work is identifying the “villages devoted in
developing their own school" and provides "external support", which is embodied in different forms
depending on the needs of the school, for example : cement bags, hire a chainsaw to build furniture,
The Wara Wara Community Schools Project
      WORK METHOD- Continuation

   iron for school structure. The result of that identification, the project developer decide
what two schools from 8 in which you are working, will be offered to build two new schools.

      The purpose of this working method is that the villagers are the
 protagonists of the project; that they feel the school as theirs; that their
              development is the result of their hard work.


    Parallel to the self development meetings, the following initiatives will be undertaken:

• Community Teachers College Education:
In the College of Teachers in Kabala: the project intends to facilitate the training of all
community teachers in the province of Wara Wara Bafodea (total of 50), as well as new
teachers who will come to strengthen the network of schools in the province.

• Training Workshops for the Community: health, education awareness, school
maintenance, teachers support, others.
The Wara Wara Community Schools Project
     METODO DE TRABAJO- Continuación
     sierra mecánica para construir muebles, hierro para la estructura de la escuela. Fruto de esta misma
identificación, el promotor del proyecto decidirá en qué dos aldeas, de las 8 en las que se está trabajando,
se ofrecerá la construcción de una nueva escuela en sustitución de la existente. Para estas dos nuevas
escuelas el proyecto aportará cemento, hierro, zinc otros.

     Lo que se pretende con este método de trabajo es que los aldeanos sean los protagonistas del
proyecto, que sientan la escuela como suya, que el desarrollo de las mismas sea fruto de su esfuerzo y
trabajo.

      Paralelamente a los encuentros de desarrollo se trabajará en:

1.    Formación de maestros comunitarios:
       • Académica en escuela de maestros: se pretende facilitar la formación de todos los
       maestros comunitarios tanto de escuelas comunitarias, como de escuelas del gobierno no
       cualificados (un total de 50) y formación de nuevas profesoras que vendrían a reforzar la red de
       escuelas de la provincia. Existe en Sierra Leona, y en la ciudad de Kabala (a 33 kms de Wara Wara
       Bafodea), formación universitaria a distancia para maestros.
       •   Talleres de formación continua.

2.    Talleres de Formación para la comunidad: salubridad, concienciación sobre la educación,
mantenimiento de las escuelas, apoyo a los maestros, otros.
The Wara Wara Community Schools Project

Any financial contribution, big or small, once or every month, is really appreciated....
We want to build a solid and sustainable project and therefore long term commitment

   month.
   • With 20 euros a month, you will help to pay for 1 teachers
   education (and transport) for a year at the School of Teachers in
   Kabala.
   • With 80 euros a month, you will help to reform a school in 2
   years.
   • With 800 euros a month, together with a group of friends, family,
   fellow worker, school classmates, you will help us to build a school in
   two years .
   • Are you a teacher? Sponsor a group of teachers.
   Help with the amount you can, monthly or single payment: As you
   decide.
                   HELP US TO HELP THEM!
   Trainning of a teacher costs 240 euros a year, and lasts three years.
   To Build a school costs about 20,000 euros.

  • 2. The Wara Wara Community Schools Project Community School in Kamagbengbeh Wara Wara Bafodea, July 2012
  • 3. The Wara Wara Community Schools Project Supporting primary "community" education in the province of Wara Wara Bafodea, one of the most deprived areas of Sierra Leone, Africa.
  • 4. The Wara Wara Community Schools Project - Because in the Human Development Index (HDI), 2011 UN ranked 180 of 187 nations. - Because 60 of 100 adults (aged 15 +) are illiterate. In Spain 2 out of 100 - Because 1 in 5 children dies before age 5 from malnutrition and other diseases. - Because 1 in 100 women die in childbirth. In Spain 6 in 100,000 - Because it was at war from 1991 to 2002 - Because life expectancy at birth is 47.8 years, while in Spain is 81 years. - Because 63% of the population lives on less than $ 1.25 a day. - Because the project developer (Marcos Portillo Armenteras) has previously developed education initiatives in the country and knows the reality very well and how to impact on it in a positive way.
  • 5. The Wara Wara Community Schools Project - Because it is one of the country's poorest provinces. It has 30,000 inhabitants spread over some 150 villages. - Because it is north of the country, in a mountainous area of difficult access. There are no paved roads and present steep slopes. No phones or internet coverage. There are only 2 cars in the whole province and belong to the king. Wara Wara Bafodea - Because the primary school enrollment rate is one of the lowest in the country and school absenteeism exceeds the national average. - Because 16 of the 31 (52%) schools in the province have been developed by the villagers (communities) as the government fails to address the existing schooling needs. - Because there are no hospitals. The area is served by two nurses and a paramedic.

The population is set to work with his own hands, using local resources, to ensure the attainment of the objectives every two weeks. Examples: repairing a wall, fell trees to build furniture, traditional construction of latrines, others. 4. Identification of leaders and villages devoted to the construction of their school. The project sponsor throughout the weeks of work is identifying the “villages devoted in developing their own school" and provides "external support", which is embodied in different forms depending on the needs of the school, for example : cement bags, hire a chainsaw to build furniture,
  • 29. The Wara Wara Community Schools Project WORK METHOD- Continuation iron for school structure. The result of that identification, the project developer decide what two schools from 8 in which you are working, will be offered to build two new schools. The purpose of this working method is that the villagers are the protagonists of the project; that they feel the school as theirs; that their development is the result of their hard work. Parallel to the self development meetings, the following initiatives will be undertaken: • Community Teachers College Education: In the College of Teachers in Kabala: the project intends to facilitate the training of all community teachers in the province of Wara Wara Bafodea (total of 50), as well as new teachers who will come to strengthen the network of schools in the province. • Training Workshops for the Community: health, education awareness, school maintenance, teachers support, others.
  • 30. The Wara Wara Community Schools Project METODO DE TRABAJO- Continuación sierra mecánica para construir muebles, hierro para la estructura de la escuela. Fruto de esta misma identificación, el promotor del proyecto decidirá en qué dos aldeas, de las 8 en las que se está trabajando, se ofrecerá la construcción de una nueva escuela en sustitución de la existente. Para estas dos nuevas escuelas el proyecto aportará cemento, hierro, zinc otros. Lo que se pretende con este método de trabajo es que los aldeanos sean los protagonistas del proyecto, que sientan la escuela como suya, que el desarrollo de las mismas sea fruto de su esfuerzo y trabajo. Paralelamente a los encuentros de desarrollo se trabajará en: 1. Formación de maestros comunitarios: • Académica en escuela de maestros: se pretende facilitar la formación de todos los maestros comunitarios tanto de escuelas comunitarias, como de escuelas del gobierno no cualificados (un total de 50) y formación de nuevas profesoras que vendrían a reforzar la red de escuelas de la provincia. Existe en Sierra Leona, y en la ciudad de Kabala (a 33 kms de Wara Wara Bafodea), formación universitaria a distancia para maestros. • Talleres de formación continua. 2. Talleres de Formación para la comunidad: salubridad, concienciación sobre la educación, mantenimiento de las escuelas, apoyo a los maestros, otros.
  • 31. The Wara Wara Community Schools Project Any financial contribution, big or small, once or every month, is really appreciated.... We want to build a solid and sustainable project and therefore long term commitment would help us enormously. To give you an idea: • With 10 euros a month, you will help with a bag of cement each month. • With 20 euros a month, you will help to pay for 1 teachers education (and transport) for a year at the School of Teachers in Kabala. • With 80 euros a month, you will help to reform a school in 2 years. • With 800 euros a month, together with a group of friends, family, fellow worker, school classmates, you will help us to build a school in two years . • Are you a teacher? Sponsor a group of teachers. Help with the amount you can, monthly or single payment: As you decide. HELP US TO HELP THEM! Trainning of a teacher costs 240 euros a year, and lasts three years. To Build a school costs about 20,000 euros.
