My name is Edlyn Smith and I am 14 years old. My dream is to become a doctor.
I’m happy for the school I’m going to because not every kid is privileged to go to that kind of school. It is really good to be educated, because when you are educated you can do anything.
My name is Delight Konneh and I am 16 years old. My favorite thing in school is to play football, to study, and handball also.
In my class we are 50 in number. Our school day lasts five hours.
Some people say school is not meant for girls. Me, I’m against that. School is meant for both girls and boys.
ODW is young people’s own development cooperation, from youth to youth.
Operation a Day’s Work (ODW) Finland is a non-governmental organization (NGO) whose objective is to promote the human rights of children and youth in developing countries and to encourage Finnish youth towards global solidarity.
Sierra Leonean youth are in the limelight
in the 2013–2014 Operation a Day’s Work campaign. Through taking part in the ODW campaign, Finnish youth support their peers in Sierra Leone in building a more equal and just Sierra Leone for all and help them have a say in matters that concern them.
Finnish students and youth do the fundraising.
ODW Finland implements development cooperation projects. These projects promote the human rights of children and youth and provide young people with life skills. The aim is that young people become active and promote development in their own communities.
