Key People

There are many people, companies, and organisations involved in the successful implementation, running, and maintenance of the school. We would like to introduce our friends here in the UK and in Sierra Leone to you …

Our Friends in Sierra Leone

Alfred Conteh, our much valued, ever smiling driver. he owns his own taxi in Freetown. Safe and reliable especially in ‘Africa Time’ which is whenever. He supports Arsenal and the local team Ports Authority who won the Premier league in 2011.

Alusine Jalloh, our Headteacher. Intelligent, calm and thoughtful. He lives in the village and his daughter is a pupil at the school. His wife has recently opened a small shop in Mile 36 .

Our Volunteers in the UK

As The David School Trust goes from strength to strength, so does our support network of volunteers who help me out with the day to day running of the charity

  • Ina Hartley kindly manages the Child Sponsorship programme and the Website for us from her home in Ramsey.
  • Roy Thomas manages our accounts on behalf of the charity. A retired accountant, Roy lives in Eastbourne and is a big Welsh Rugby fan and darts player.
  • Michael Houlden is key to the logistical side of the operation. He holds a current Sierra Leone driving licence and has been integral in a number of trips to Mile 36, particularly in the preparation and unpacking of the container. Sadly, Michael supports Chelsea FC.
