Community Eye Clinic
The ACIPP Community Eye Clinic programme plans to provide support to Freetown communities this summer by providing optometric care and glasses free of charge. Through providing eye care, we aim to increase occupational and educational capacity that was once limited due to visual impairment. Find out more here.
Sierra Leone Scholarship Programme
ACIPP West Africa is currently supporting ten children (seven girls and three boys) in our community in Goderich. The children have been chosen according to two criteria: first of all, they needed to demonstrate good school work and high levels of motivation (based on feedback from teaches) and secondly, they needed to be from low-resource families who struggle to pay for their children’s school fees. In other words, they are smart kids that need some outside help to finish school. This programme pays for their school fees and books for a year, and if they keep up their good school work, we will support them for the remainder of their secondary education. In addition, one more young girl and one young boy will be privately supported by individual sponsors, but with the same conditions as the other ten beneficiaries. We aim to continue this programme into the 2014-2015 school year!
