The Annie Walsh Memorial School is the oldest secondary school for girls, in Sub-Saharan Africa. Established in 1849, this school has produced prominent female leaders in various professions including, but not limited to, aeronautics, medicine, engineering, law and education.

The administrative building of this historic institution has never undergone major repairs and, over time, the foundation has eroded and is now in dire need of structural rehabilitation and restoration. The building has become unsafe and the scope of work includes replacing the roof, floors, doors, windows and electrical systems; reinforcing the building columns and the bridge; updating the staff rooms and facilities and preserving the brick walls.

The school does not have the funds required for this extensive and urgent undertaking that needs to be completed within a short timeframe, to ensure the safety of students and staff. We implore all alumnae, faculty, current students, patrons, well-wishers, and friends to support this fundraising campaign and help preserve this building and the HERITAGE of the school. A healthy and conducive environment enhances the teaching and learning experience. Please contribute whatever you can to help maintain a safe learning environment and to ensure that our beloved institution continues to provide world-class education for girls in Sierra Leone.

All funds raised will go towards the completion of this project, through the Development Fund Committee, and approved by the Rehabilitation and Restoration Task Force.

All donations in the United States are Tax Deductible.
