International School

I’m proud to report that the International School in Freetown has been very proactive during this period where thousands of children has been home unable to attend school. The school has provided their students with educational materials on CDs along with hard copies of questions, textbooks and exercise books. Each CD pack represents a term.

Our aim

Tebbs SC aims, with help from you our fantastic donors, to sponsor at least another 40 children when the schools are re-opened. Please help us to support the children of these poorer communities by sponsoring a child’s education for a minimum of one year. We want to ensure that children who are less fortunate can still go on to achieve their potential in life by receiving an education.
