September Mission of the Month
The Sierra Leone Project
The September Monthly Mission is The Sierra Leone Project. Sierra Leone is an ongoing mission field in the Evangelical Presbyterian Church’s "Engage 2025 Initiative", through which the EPC has made a specific commitment to plant churches and spread the Gospel in the most unreached areas of the Muslim world. The Sierra Leone Project was initiated by our own Presbytery of the Alleghenies through their EduNations organization, and constitutes the EPC’s primary outreach to that country.
Founded in 2004, EduNations initially focused exclusively on building schools and providing Christian-based education to children in mostly-Muslim communities in Sierra Leone. Since then, EduNations has built 14 schools, which now have over 100 teachers and staff serving about 3,000 students in six different communities.
While continuing to offer free Christian-based education, EduNations has expanded its work into providing health care services to their students and their families. In some villages, that means working with an established government clinic to supplement available services, or providing transportation to enable students and their families to travel to local clinics. However, in the village of Rokassa, where there was no health care facility within an hour’s drive, EduNations built the Orfonthy Community Health Center, which first opened in October of 2017, and today is continuing to expand its services.
Your contributions this month will support the ongoing work of EduNations at the Orfonthy Health Center in providing Christian-based healthcare services to people of the village of Rokassa, as well as many surrounding villages.
