Education-Based Development

Join us on our mission to provide access to quality education in Sierra Leone

What is Nations Cry

Nations Cry is a humanitarian organization focused on providing education in the developing world. Building schools, enhancing curriculum and training teachers are just a few of the ways that Nations Cry is helping to build a better future for children in Sierra Leone, West Africa.

Our goal is to create a legacy for future generations by empowering those in need through long-term, sustainable solutions.


Our Current Efforts

Pathway Academy opened its doors to the community of Waterloo, Sierra Leone in January 2016. This year, 135 students are enrolled in the six classroom facility of the Junior Secondary School.

As of October 2017, we are proud to announce the construction of Pathway Academy’s Senior Secondary School. Our students can now continue their education and become change-makers, growing the ranks of the less than 5% of youth who graduate from Senior Secondary School in Sierra Leone.

Pathway Academy’s Junior and Senior Secondary School are operated by Sierra Leoneans with financial and administrative support from Nations Cry.

A Message From Our President

Sierra Leone

Pathway Academy

Pathway Academy is an operating Junior Secondary School in Waterloo, Sierra Leone that opened in January 2016. The school employs local Sierra Leonean teachers and administrators and has the capacity to educate approximately 200 students each year.

Education in Sierra Leone

In Sierra Leone, a disproportionate amount of male students complete secondary school. Nations Cry has purposed to create equal opportunity and we ensure that approximately 50% of the enrolled students at Pathway Academy are female. Thanks to your donations, Pathway Academy will provide accessible, quality education to the children of Waterloo, Sierra Leone for decades to come.

Our Next Steps

Nations Cry is working towards funding the construction of a Senior Secondary school in Waterloo in order to facilitate the continued education of students in the community. Through education, we hope to empower Sierra Leoneans to build a better future for the next generation.

100% of the funds donated to The Storehouse will be spent on direct humanitarian related activities.

0% of the donations will be spent on administrative expenses, meaning no salary will be paid to any individual working for Nations Cry in North America.

Nations Cry will spend money when and where it is needed most without exception.

Donate Securities

At the request of the donor, donations can be used within the year or can be placed aside as part of The Storehouse endowment fund where the annual investment proceeds will go to the cause specified by you.

Transfer Form


The Storehouse

The Storehouse is the primary endowment fund and the source of project funding. When a donation is made to the Storehouse the funds are invested and the investment proceeds are used for Nations Cry projects. The initial funds are never spent allowing you to leave a legacy that will continue indefinitely. Every new donation is tracked to the individual / organization making the contribution. The total funds provided are tracked by a unique donor ID number. As a result, you or your organization have their own “Legacy Fund”, the contents of which will never cease making the world a better place.

Start a Legacy Fund

The minimum donation required for establishing a Legacy Fund is $1,000 with no minimum for subsequent donations. Each Legacy Fund will be named after an individual (e.g. the person creating it, in memory of someone). In order to create or Donate to a Legacy Fund, you will need to provide the following information with your donation:

  • Provide a signed statement that you request Nations Cry to hold the funds for “a minimum of 10 years” (thus allowing Nations Cry to hold the principal indefinitely);
  • State that the donation is for a Legacy Fund;
  • Provide the name of your Legacy Fund; and
  • For new Legacy Funds, please state the cause that you would like the Legacy Funds to be dedicated to.
