Sierra Leone

Next Generation Reformers(NGR)

Next Generation Reformers(NGR) was founded in 2017 by a female Police Officer and gender activist who thought it fit that the next generation of Sierra Leone should be free from the culture of corruption and instead embrace values based on integrity. NGR’s established safe spaces for 6-9 year old girls who are not enrolled in school and for 15-17 years old girls enrolled in school. Located in Bonga Tong community in Murray Town, the safe spaces offer the girls an opportunity to access basic and early education for the younger girls. The older girls benefit from the support of a mentor to develop life skills and develop knowledge and confidence to resist early marriage and the power to make informed choices about their sexual and reproductive health.
