The mission of SLADEA is to reduce the high rate of illiteracy (a major hindrance to social, economic and political progress) among Sierra Leonean adults and to empower them through functional adult education programmes and activities. Ours is an education for self-reliance. Special emphasis is placed on the empowerment of women and young people in order to make them active initiators of and participants in their own developmental process.
We envision a country where every citizen can read
and write and therefore enjoy full participation in the development of their communities.
