CHEMICAL EDUCATION INITIATIVES

Ongley-Myers Sierra Leone Chemistry Education Project

Studying in Sierra Leone with unreliable or non-existent electricity, limited equipment, and unaffordable textbooks is tough. Enrollment in secondary school is low and the enriching experience of learning is diminished. Chemists Without Borders has partnered with other organizations to provide chemistry material for science coursework and enhance student learning in Sierra Leone. Microchemistry kits are also being developed for use in Sierra Leone.
