  1. So sad to watch this. Why the politicians are not doing something about this? There are so many things they could do to improve lives of the masses. It could be through vigorous farming schemes, loans for small business businesses, country wide mandatory education for primary and secondary students and public awareness of the important of keeping good sanitation.

  11. There is obviously in these kind of countries a big gap between rich and poor.And the rich don’t give a dame because they are CLEARLY corrupt.

  12. My god, what immune systems they must have. Just watched the "Only Emergency in Sierra Leone" it seems if you can make it to 5 years, and not get hit by a car, your survival rate is good. Im not joking. Watch the video, think its by Journey Men Productions.

  13. Your heart is in the right place, advocating for assistance for these girls to further their education, in addition, preventing them from facing the dire conditions that they are currently facing, but the situation in hand is much more complicated than merely assisting a few. Unless you are planning to highlight similar outlooks daily, and hope someone volunteer a helping hand each and every time (what are the odds of that, in a world so self serving?), Nothing is going to change. We must understand that the education system is doing exactly what it’s there to do, and that these girls education venture, if! It’s going to serve them in the future (which would be extremely fortunate on their behaves), that is it, and nothing more. There are many others that are stuck in the same predicament, thus it is a vicious cycle. SaLone needs a radical change. For instance, why are they even importing chicken when they’re more than capable of producing their own? Isn’t that what education is supposed to do? Educate the people that they can be self sufficient in many ways, but no, they rather follow the western way of learning, which is clearly not working for them.
