Plan International in support of Sierra Leone

Sierra Leone School Meals Program


One proven way to fight the hunger crisis is through school meal programs. Studies show that school meals help to fight hunger, improve school enrolment, and – when the food is grown sustainably – can play a key role in reducing greenhouse gas emissions. School meals fuel children’s ability to learn, thrive and grow into the next generation of leaders contributing to their communities and, ultimately, the world. This incredible School Feeding Project in Sierra Leone has a 35x match!

With your support, the Sierra Leone school meals feeding project will help more than 300,000 children access food. But that’s not all. Female farmers, who provide food for school meals, can now earn a steady income to support their families. This incredible opportunity is making an unbelievable impact on the lives of so many children and adults.

We have an urgent goal to raise $500K by August 31 to help school children overcome severe hunger in Sierra Leone. Led by The Power of One Foundation, a number of our most generous donors have combined with the Sierra Leone government to match Canadian donations of up to $250,000 35X. This could unlock $9M to support critical school meal programs that fuel healthy bodies and minds.

Together, we can make a difference. Donate Today !!

We are delighted to announce the successful closeout of our campaign for the school meals program in Sierra Leone. Thanks to the generous match sponsorship from the Sierra Leone Government and several key donors including the Power of One Foundation, combined with your invaluable donations, we have reached our campaign funding target. As a result, 300,000+ children in Sierra Leone will now receive healthy school meals, ensuring their well-being and empowering them to thrive in their educational journey. This remarkable achievement is a testament to the compassion and generosity of our supporters, and we extend our heartfelt thanks to every one of you.


Plan International Canada is excited to share that we have raised $80,000 for this incredible campaign! Thanks to the support of leaders like The Power of One Foundation, you can leverage your donation 35 times! Please consider donating today and help make a lasting impact in the lives of school children in Sierra Leone.
