What We Do

Sierra Leone as a country has been receiving assistance to foster its development as early as the 1960’s. During this time, religious bodies working in the parishes took the lead in simulating development activities at grass root level with the participation of the citizens. Consequently, increased awareness of the vital role of Non-Governmental Organisations (NGO) attracted local, private, public donations as well as international donor funding for implementing specific activities across the country. The Government of Sierra Leone recognising the valuable role NGOs play in National development developed a policy to guide the work of NGOs which was ratified in 2009 and reviewed in 2015. Both documents clearly stipulated that there must be an existing NGO desk in all GoSL ministries. The Ministry of Basic and Senior Secondary Education has had such a desk which coordinates the support efforts of implementing partners since 2009. This desk registers and monitors the intervention of implementing partners, found to be qualified to work in the area of education in Sierra Leone.

The Ministry of Basic and Senior Secondary Education in its stride to support and strengthen the coordinating function of the NGO desk, in 2015, established a Development Partners’ Coordination desk in the Office of the Coordinator, Presidents Recovery Priorities (PRP) which provided support towards the coordination of the activities of development partners that were working in the Education Sector of Sierra Leone. To date, this desk with support from the European Union, continues its work in coordinating the input and work of development partners in education for the implementation of various components of the Free Quality School Education Programme and the 2018-2020 Education Sector Plan (ESP).

The Development Partners’ Coordination Desk and the NGO desk coordinates activities between the Ministry of Basic and Senior Secondary Education and its Donor and Implementing Partners working in the Education Sector of Sierra Leone.
