A total of six million exercise books has been distributed nationwide under President Julius Maada Bio’s flagship Free Quality Education initiative.

It could be recalled that about two weeks ago, the Government of Sierra Leone disbursed about Le25Bn. (twenty-five billion Leones) to schools across the country for tuition and other composite fees.
The Free Quality Education initiative is a flagship project of the SLPP New Direction government of President Julius Maada Bio and already, at least two million children are expected to benefit from this policy.
