The Sierra Leone Education Fund

Welcome Jennifer Pilholski...

This week we are very excited to have Jennifer Carr Pilholski as our guest speaker to tell us all about the Ebola epidemic and Education in Sierra Leone.

Jennifer is the president and founder of the Sierra Leone Education fund. Jennifer's connections to Moyamba, Sierra Leone date back to the 1940's when her great aunt, the late June Hartranft, served as a missionary at the Harford School for Girls. She started this organization, along with Eric (a former Rotaractor) to continue to support and empower the young women that her aunt came to love so much. A Penn State

graduate in Geography, Jennifer currently works for a watershed restoration non-profit in Annapolis, Maryland and previously worked with International Rescue Committee. 

 

She will share a brief overview of the Ebola outbreak in West Africa including how it all started and what measures are being taken to get it under control. She will also be discussing what her non profit, the Sierra Leone Education Fund, has done to help the crisis and what the hopes are for the future.
The Sierra Leone Education Fund was started out of the Howard County Rotaract Club.
