Linking UK schools to Destiny Grace Academy

27th October 2019 | Posted in Nigel's Blog

Last month we had the privilege of opening Destiny Grace Academy as to welcomed over 80 children to a new doorway to learning. We would now like to link our school to some UK schools. Our schools have so much. Most schools in Sierra Leone have so little. A partnership could perhaps look like this:

  • Adopting Destiny Grace Academy as one of the UK/US school’s charity partners this year and /or next.
  • Raise some funds, which will enable one class in Destiny to become sustainable.  You will no doubt have ideas as to how much is possible in your setting.
  • We could have supervised direct pupil contact e.g. classes will be able to communicate via skype or e mail. 
  • Projects about faith, geography, poverty, social responsibility, maths and across the curriculum can open children’s eyes to a wider world.  This will lead to significant insight for children in both your school and that of Destiny Grace Academy.
  • Children could write personal letters
  • Any excess training materials, retired curriculum, reading books and surplus equipment can be shared and shipped.
  • School and local community/church trips enable teachers, older pupils etc to actually visit the school.
  • Home Leone staff could visit or lead an assembly in your school.

We would also welcome any additional ideas that enable children to grow and learn in both countries.  

If you are a teacher, or know a teacher you could share it with who might suggest this at your connected schools we would be really grateful. For more information please do get in touch at

Thank you so much, this can help so many children in both countries
