Save the Teachers! 

Did you know that EduNations employs 148 teachers in Sierra Leone?  We strive to hire the most qualified teachers with excellent work ethics and passion for teaching.  We retain these teachers by paying them in full and on time each month.  This may seem like a commonplace practice, but there are many schools in developing countries who are challenged in paying their teachers in a timely manner.  As a result, many schools experience high teacher turnover rates.  Dedicated teachers often find it necessary to seek other employment where they can be compensated appropriately.  

At EduNations, we desire to retain our highly skilled teachers to educate our students, and we want to retain these excellent educators!  Providing teacher salaries encompasses approximately 35% of our yearly budget, making it one of the most critically important parts of our comprehensive education plan.  With your donation, we can hire and retain the best teachers in Sierra Leone.  Together, we can SAVE THE TEACHERS!
