Cape Community School, Freetown, Sierra Leone

Old pics courtesy of Gabriel Scott.  Cape Community School is a free primary school, founded by Mr Scott in 1999 during the Sierra Leone Civil war.  The school has received assistance from UK and US government partners, as well as from NGOs.
For those from the Iron Duke et al who were involved in construction: the school is still going strong.  It has turned out several students who went on to go to college, become teachers, etc.  It will re-open in coming months, after the epidemic ends.  While the school has been closed down due to Ebola, founder Gabriel Scott has put his energies into creating an orphanage for Freetown street kids. 
A few old pics of construction of new school facilities after the end of the war:
