The question now is majority of the population in Sierra Leone are extremely poor living less than 2 Dollars a day.
How many Sierra Leonean can afford to pay such huge money for their Children Education?
What about the poor and middle class people, meaning their children will not be educated with a tertiary degree or diploma?
