Partnership to hold their AGM
by Henry James

THE Annual General Meeting of the Waterloo Partnership is scheduled to take place on Thursday, September 15 at 7.30pm at St Edmund's & St Thomas' Primary School.

This meeting of the group, which collects money for its Sierra Leone namesake, will be held in the presence of His Excellency, Edward Turay, High Commissioner for Sierra Leone to the UK.

Also present will be Alieu Mansaray, a founder member and chair of the Waterloo Partnership Sierra Leone, together with Aminata Mansaray, co-ordinator for the school scholarship and education project and Hellen Whenzle, co-ordinator for the women's bakery project.

This year in Waterloo, Sierra Leone three dilapidated bridges have been re-built, and three wells are now giving fresh water to residents. The group has also reported that women farmers, including war widows, are better equipped to produce wholesome food for families, and that drop-out youngsters are being trained as car mechanics. It has also stated that 40 orphaned and vulnerable children, in receipt of Waterloo Partnership scholarships, are making good progress in their schools. Finally eleven Sefton schools have now established, with 11 schools in Waterloo, SL, British Council Global School Partnerships, funded by the Department for International Development.

In January 2011, when Teresa McLaughlin, chair of the Waterloo Partnership UK reported on the work to His Excellency, Dr Ernest Bai Koroma, president of Sierra Leone, he commended the efforts of all and expressed delight in being in partnership with the charity.

The trustees of the Waterloo Partnership believe that the charity is something our donors can be proud of. Over £44,000 has been sent this year for project development work in Waterloo, Sierra Leone.
