Photographer's Note

Taken at the Baptist school in the town of Kabala, capital of the Koinadugu District of Sierra Leone.

Within this single room church which doubles as a classroom during the week, are around 40 students of varying ages that are eager to learn. That is, until perhaps the lesson stretches to far into the 35C day as this was. The older boy on the left had nonchalantly leaned on his arm, allowing for the younger student to briefly turn his head in curiousity to what I was doing in the row behind them.

Supported by CAUSE Canada (www.cause.ca) these students are provided with uniforms and food necessary to continue their primary education and create a foundation for further education.
