Sponsors like you are helping students from some of the poorest parts of Sierra Leone receive a high-quality education. Through your sponsorship, young men and women who once had no chance of earning an income and supporting their families are seeing a world of opportunities open up before them. Thank you for providing these opportunities by sponsoring a student.
Our University/Vocational Program has two phases:
Phase One: Gap Year – The gap year gives students practical work experience that prepares them for the next phase of their education. It also gives them a chance to work within COTN in an area of interest, letting them contribute to the ministry in a meaningful way.
Phase Two: Attend University or Vocational School – After completing the gap year, students begin their course of study in school. The length of time they spend in this phase depends on their school and area of study.
Graduates of the University/Vocational Program have already become doctors, teachers, and other professionals. As our children grow up, hundreds more students will enter the program in the coming years.
Benefits/services provided may include: Tuition, room and board, books, materials, travel costs.
