Empowering through Human Rights Education: A Transformative Milestone

At Future Leaders Initiative SL, we are dedicated to promoting non-violent conflict resolution through our PENS UP CANES DOWN initiative. Recently, on February 23rd, 2022, in collaboration with Youth for Human Rights Sierra Leone, we achieved a significant milestone in our commitment to human rights education. Our journey took us to Lungi Town, 114 miles away from Freetown, where we brought the invaluable gift of Human Rights Education to the vibrant community.

Bringing Human Rights Education to 10,000 Pupils in Lungi Town

We are thrilled to share that we have distributed Human Rights booklets and provided comprehensive education to over 15,000 school pupils, dedicated teachers, and community stakeholders. This initiative is a testament to our ongoing commitment to human rights advocacy. We firmly believe that true and lasting peace can only be achieved through Human Rights Education. It is the foundation upon which societies build understanding, tolerance, and unity.

Celebrating a Future of Human Rights

Through initiatives like "Bringing Human Rights Education to 10,000 Pupils in Lungi Town," we aspire to create a future where the principles of human rights are not only upheld but celebrated. This transformative journey aims to forge a path toward a more just and harmonious world. To witness the impact and highlights of this initiative, watch the video here.

Pens Up Canes Down: Nurturing Nonviolent Learning Environments

On February 18th, 2023, we marked another significant milestone with the launch of "Pens Up Canes Down." This initiative encapsulates our unwavering belief in the necessity of a nonviolent learning environment. We understand that true education flourishes in an atmosphere free from fear and violence. "Pens Up Canes Down" is our commitment to nurturing such environments, where knowledge can thrive, and children can grow into empowered individuals.

Creating Spaces of Inspiration and Growth

In tandem with our nonstop community awareness-raising efforts, in partnership with international and local organizations and other women-led groups, our mission is clear: to create spaces where learning is a source of inspiration and growth, not a cause for fear. Witness the efforts and impact firsthand by watching our video highlights and exploring our awareness-raising endeavors.

At Future Leaders Initiative SL, we remain steadfast in our commitment to fostering environments where human rights are not just taught but lived, and where education becomes a catalyst for positive change.
