6.11.2016
Aurora has cooperated with UNICEF in Sierra Leone since the fund’s establishment in 2007, and has supported educational project for 2,1m USD. Considering education as a human right and as an unequivocal basis for the foundation of social development Aurora has deemed it highly beneficial to support projects furthering this process.

The support from the Aurora Foundation has directly contributed to increased access to quality education.

Since its establishment, the goal of Aurora has been to enhance and strengthen cultural and humanitarian activities in Iceland and abroad with focus on supporting projects that can make a difference.

Aurora has faith in the benefits of ensuring greater access to education, for women in particular, in Sierra Leone. It should provide the necessary foundation of the country‘s future in terms of social and individual rights. Increased access to education for all children with a specific focus on ensuring girls education makes Aurora confident that a greater contribution can be made in the long term to local culture, overall productivity and the national income of Sierra Leone.

The final quote of the report states: „The support from the Aurora Foundation has directly contributed to increased access to quality education for children in Sierra Leone and a strengthened community participation in education. With the Aurora Foundation support, children will have their right to community-supported child- friendly quality education fulfilled. On behalf of the children whose lives have transformed and improved because of the Aurora Foundation support and resolve, UNICEF extends its deepest gratitude and looks forward to continued cooperation to secure the right to education for even more children in Sierra Leone.“
