A P4K-AU/P4K-USA Sponsorship

Situated in the heart of Freetown, the school was left abandoned during the war and reopened in a dilapidated state. In 2008 the Freetown Council and the Education department handed the operation of the school the Orthodox mission and Pk4A-AU/P4K-USA began sponsoring its refurbishment and operation. Below is a short video of its BEFORE state.

Since the take over in 2008, the school has had a massive clean-up with a security fence built around the compound making it safe and secure for over 1500 students ranging from Primary school to Secondary School . A new 22 room wing has been built and tens of thousands of dollars worth of school equipment bought ready for its opening in December 2012.

St Eleftherios and St George, Syke St – Greece Sponsorship

As Rev Themi says, “In everything we do we have a spiritual agenda; and the sum of this agenda is to above all, show the Love of God through Jesus Christ our Lord” he goes on to say, “everything we do is free, we do exactly what Christ said to do Freely Receive and Freely Give, there are no strings attached”. The church of St Eleftherios and St George occupies a corner of the school and children and parents are free to come and go as they please, no one is forced or ordered to attend church, and at the end of each Sunday service we feed our parishioners and any persons that walk off the street.
