6 Horton Street is a historic Krio house, which forms part of our Freetown school and houses 216 of the school’s 470 pupils.
Security, space and sanitation are very poor at 6 Horton Street, and the school house was recently deemed structurally unsound by Prince’s Foundation architects.
The restoration and expansion of 6 Horton Street is a two-part project, which will return the responsibility of this historic building to the community and ensure the continued education of hundreds of children.

Phase 1 Restoration
Planting Promise is partnering with the Prince’s Foundation for Building Community to conduct Phase 1 of the renovation and reinforcement of 6 Horton Street.
Phase 1 will…
ensure that our school house is structurally sound and climatically appropriate
install much needed handwashing basins, and a new toilet block
extend the classroom area in our school house
improve security for our children and teachers
provide on-site training and employment for local tradespeople
With your support, we aim to raise an additional £39,000 in order to complete Phase 2 of our Building Promise project.
Your donation will enable us to…
create a 3-storey extension, allowing us to increase our annual nursery intake from 55 to 75 children and expand our classroom space
double our toilet facilities, bringing the school well within the government’s requirement of 1 toilet per 45 pupils
provide a covered playground, ensuring shelter from the rain or sun
