Our team will serve the staff and children of COTN Sierra Leone in a variety of ways, including projects and staff training opportunities uniquely based upon each team member skills, talents and experience. We will focus on the COTN Core Principles of Sustainability, Partnership, Learning and Development.

Learning and Development 

Continual learning and growth are foundational to ensuring our mission is best accomplished. We welcome the knowledge, skills, and passions of our partners. We embrace process improvement and seek to create standard operating procedures that are ‘living documents’ that can be built and improved upon as we grow and learn as an alliance.


SCIENCE CAMP - Team members will encourage students in the sciences with classroom activities and lab projects during the trip. Science teachers and science "nuts" will be supporting the COTN Education Goals for STEM emphasis (Science, Technology, Engineering, Mathematics)


COTN believes a sustainable approach to caring for the children and communities we serve is the most effective way to empower individuals and transform nations. We are committed to designing, assessing, and improving the sustainability of our projects and programs, providing communities with sustainable development tools and methods in key areas including water, agriculture, renewable energy, and microfinance.

We are convinced successful work begins with relationships and continues through partnerships offering unique skills and knowledge. COTN strategically partners with churches, groups, and organizations in each country to best accomplish our mission.
