iEARN SL's rehabilitation
program engages youths in creative writing, music, drama, computer
skills and literacy, filmmaking, and fine arts.
A supportive environment with a heavy emphasis on counseling is
offered through our three iEARN centers. Furthermore, youths get
the opportunity to visit with other youths in Sierra Leone and around
the world through school visits, cultural exchanges, and exchanges
via the internet. Since its inception, iEARN SL has offered possibilities
for over 850 war affected youth and school going children to participate
in global issues and has given them a powerful forum for letting
their voices be heard beyond the confines of Sierra Leone.
iEARN SL's peace education promotion program works directly
with the government of Sierra Leone to introduce and maintain peace
education in Sierra Leone's school curriculum. iEARN SL recognizes
that the youth who have suffered from war and war's effects need
special tools and skills in order to transform their lives, their
communities and their country.
