Make a Difference in Sierra Leone
EYES appreciates your financial contributions to help us reach a growing number of young adults in Sierra Leone and expand our program
The Sierra Leonean educational system has been ravaged by and is still in decay as a result of the ten year civil war that plagued the country. Thus resources are scarce, limited, or unaffordable to the average Sierra Leonean. Excelling Youth Educational Scholarship (EYES) Program will sponsor a student per year starting from the first year in secondary (high) school all throughout college or post -secondary education. This is not an easy undertaking, but with dedication and your support, we will succeed. It only takes an average of $100/yr. to put a student through secondary school. Every little bit counts $5, $10 or even a $100 donation will go a long way towards providing educational resources for our children. Make a difference, change a life, donate and remember, always keep your EYES on the Prize.
$10 – Provide pencils and books for an entire school year
$15 – Provide school uniform for a child
$50 – Pay tuition for an entire school year for a child in primary or secondary school
$100 – Pay tuition for an entire school year for a college student
All donations are 100% tax deductible and will be used towards projects in Sierra Leone. You will receive a confirmation of receipt with our Tax Identification Number within 2 weeks of your donation. Thank you in advance for your support!

EYES Program is recognized as a tax exempt public charitable organization under section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code (see our recognition letter from the IRS).
