Jenny DowellEducation, particularly of girls, is the best assistance we can give anyone anywhere in the world.

I'm delighted to support Sarah King's Sierra Leone book project. Sarah has made her home in our Lismore community and is now working to assist her country of origin by giving the gift of learning through reading to the children there. She has the books and now needs our help to pay for the transport.

How about making a donation to get those books to the Sierra Leone children who are waiting for them.
