STREET CHILD Partners with JOULE AFRICA to Bring Centre for Education to Bumbuna
This joint venture between renewable energy developer Joule Africa and child development NGO Street Child is set to further improve access to education in the Bumbuna area.
The Bumbuna Resource Centre will sit at the heart of the Bumbuna community, acting as a centre for educational development and offering Street Child of Sierra Leone an office from which to organise its developmental activities in the surrounding area.
Simultaneously, the building will act as a hub for community information on the second phase of the development of the Bumbuna Hydroelectric Project staffed by Joule Africa, an international company appointed by the Government of Sierra Leone to develop the project.
All ongoing activity at the centre will be funded by Joule Africa as part of the company’s commitment to social development and open discourse with the communities that surround its work.
