Deborah, Beacon of Hope Academy


“If Sierra Leone is going to be a nation transformed for Christ, a seed must be sown when the children are young.”

A Beacon of Hope

Deborah’s Story

featured in Edify’s 2019 Annual Report

It was 2006 when Deborah started the Christ-centered school Beacon of Hope Academy, but the reality of operating a school in Sierra Leone was riddled with obstacles. Year after year, Beacon of Hope could barely make ends meet and Deborah was faced with the decision to close its doors. But before she could board up the windows, Deborah was introduced to Edify.

We work with women entrepreneurs, like Deborah, all across Sierra Leone, West Africa, and beyond.
