Education Cures empowers teachers in developing countries with the training, tools, and curriculum to help their students become lifelong learners.
Our current focus lies in Sierra Leone, West Africa, where we have an early childhood education program, as well as an integrated school for children, who may have started school as late as age thirteen due to poverty or learning disabilities.
I'll never forget my first sighting of 7-year-old Mohamed, barefoot, malnourished and dressed in clothing that was tattered and torn. He was on the side of the road, outcasted from social groups, and never given the chance to have an education due to his loss of vision in one eye and learning disabilities. Mohamed’s story drives our mission.
Empower our teachers.
We work diligently with our local teachers on-site and online to ensure that they have the proper training, curriculum, programs and support to create a successful learning environment for all students with or without learning disabilities. Our end goal is to give our teachers the tools that they need to create successful learners.
The only way we will ever cure anything is through education. We have launched a capital campaign for an Early Childhood Education Center, which will serve as a model training center for teachers all over Sierra Leone. Together, we will provide opportunities for teachers to turn hundreds of thousands of students into learners in West Africa.
