Target Audience(s):
Global educators interested in learning about the values and vision of educational and community leaders in rural Bumpe, Sierra Leone, a region devastated during the civil war.

Short Session Description (one line):
Hear from school and community leaders in the rural community of Bumpe, Sierra Leone, as they explore their goals and challenges around education and change in this post-war region, particularly around human rights and policies which will protect the community's future.  

Full Session Description (as long as you would like):
The community of Bumpe, Sierra Leone, was once home to one of the most successful high schools in the southern region of the country—and the only high school which could offer graduates entry into the country’s university system.  Unfortunately, the school was among the “casualties of war” in Sierra Leone, and leaders have had to rebuild not only the school infrastrcture but also their broader community.  While challenges remain, Bumpe High School—and the community’s elementary schools—have forged forward with an inspiring vision for change and advancement, both in the classroom and the broader community.  The new vision includes the following goals, and this session will include leaders connecting live from Sierra Leone in order to explore how they hope to reach these goals (goals are in draft form and were written by Bumpe’s youngest leader and future chief Hindogbae Kposowa, who has been connecting his school with North American communities through the World Leadership School):
