      Hi Idrissa,

      Fundsforngos is not a funding organization and we do not provide grants and scholarships. We are a social enterprise that provides fundraising guides, resources, and the latest funding opportunities to help you fundraise better and secure grant funding.

      We appreciate your concern towards learning but unfortunately Sierra Leone is not in the list of eligible countries for this particular program. You can find a good range of opportunities and programmes at https://fundsforngos1.wpengine.com/

      Thank You!
