Key-Action Network(KAN) in partnership with African Heritage Universe ( AHU) in Halifax has launched a project called Lifeline Ebola Orphans (LEO) Scholarship project. The LEO scholarship is available to students in the three West African countries of Liberia, Sierra Leone and Guinea. The scholarship program will provide educational assistance to high school students who lost their parent(s) to the 2013 - 2015 West African Ebola epidemic and whose ability to remain in school is demonstrably threatened by the financial circumstances of their guardians. Application for 2017/218 academic year is ongoing, and deadline for application is June, 30, 2017.
The project intends to enhance the capacity of recipients to stay in school and be educated by undertaking the cost of School fees, books and uniforms, conducting study classes, counseling and creating the right environment for learning both at home and school.
Poverty is one of the major causes of food crisis especially among families and individuals caring for Ebola orphans in the three West African countries affected by the Ebola outbreak. Nearly a third of these families and individual living around Ebola epic center are faced with food crisis, and 41% of people in that same areas live on less than U.S. $1 daily. It is a public knowledge that a high rates of poverty is correlated with high rates of hunger.
Without a real safety net, the learning environment of these Ebola orphan will continue to be threaten, making them more vulnerable to abuse and exploitation. It is against this background that Key-Action Network is launching a program in West Africa called ‘Food4Kids”.

- SCHOOL KIDS - Provide snacks, food and nonfood materials, school supplies to school kids from poor neighborhoods in urban and rural communities in Liberia Sierra Leone and Guinea
