Nick Hewer travelled out to Sierra Leone earlier this month to learn about our rural schools and business projects. Known to millions as Alan Sugar’s right-hand man on BBC’s The Apprentice, Nick is especially supportive of our Family Business Scheme projects, and is committed to Street Child’s work in helping families lift themselves out of poverty.
Nick called for the British public to help improve the situation in Sierra Leone through education: “From a British point of view you have to say to build a school for £12,000 and then run it for £1,000 just seems so ridiculously cheap that we should all be hurrying together, going round our mates and doing it. It’s a great scheme."
Nick also appeared on Channel 4’s Sunday Brunch this weekend to talk about Street Child’s recently launched appeal (whilst cutting an avocado…). Watch it here!
