Feeding Hungry Minds

MISSION STATEMENT

Support motivated youth in overcoming obstacles to higher education and introduce them to a wider worldview using multi-media technologies

We have Youth and Technology Education Centers in USA and Africa that provides a safe learning environment where young people work with adult mentors to develop skills and build confidence through the use of technology.

Our goals are to provide a youth digital broadcast network that can be a platform for education, information, culture, growth and change. To become a part of a global network of technology centers around the world, that provide youth access to resources and online learning that help them lead outstanding lives and contribute to their communities.




In May 2013, at the Freetown, Sierra Leone Technology Computer Center - we opened our improved computer lab. Complete with networked Macs, providing online learning, typing, and multimedia training tools. Currently building a digital academic library.



International Day of the African Child
Students from the Feeding Hungry Minds Learning Center took pictures and videos of youth in Freetown, Sierra Leone observing the Day of the African Child, in memory of thousands of black school children who were maimed and killed in the 1976 Soweto uprising, as they took to the streets to protest the inferior quality of their education and to demand their right to be taught in their own language.

The International Day of the African Child has been commemorated on 16 June every year since 1991, when it was first initiated by the Organisation of African Unity. It also raises awareness of the continuing need for improvement of health care and education provided to African children.



Freetown, Sierra Leone

Sierra Leone, West Africa is a country under reconstruction after being ravaged by a brutal civil war for over 11 years. The recent movie Blood Diamond gives a rather accurate portrayal of the struggle and the chaos caused by the war. One of the main exports is diamonds, along with many other precious minerals. While the government has stabilized over the last 5 years or so, the economic and social infrastructure is not well developed, and serious social disorders continue to hamper economic development. About two-thirds of the working-age population engages in subsistence agriculture. Manufacturing consists mainly of the processing of raw materials and of light manufacturing for the domestic market.
