Sierra Leone Adult Education Association

The Sierra Leone Adult Education Association (SLADEA) has certified eight potters from its Lettie Stuart Pottery/Ceramic Centre at Campbell Town, Waterloo on Saturday 20th February 2021.
After a series of consultations and meetings in 2018, the Sierra Leone Adult Education Association (SLADEA) signed a partnership agreement with Aurora Foundation in Iceland. The partnership enables the training of local potters thus enabling the production of local ceramic materials like cups, plates, bowls, flower vase, etc.

Regina thanked SLADEA for the fruitful cooperation between Aurora Foundation and SLADEA. She ended up her statement by advising the graduates to put more effort and be open up to learn more so that they will grow.
The Honorary President of SLADEA Professor Joe A.D Alie in his statement praise the Aurora Foundation and prays that the partnership will not only sustain but will grow to higher heights.

The Professor went on to say that the quality of the products has improved considerably which calls for a big thanks to visiting tutors especially Peter who is currently on a visit to Sierra Leone. He urged the waterloo people to make use of the Pottery/Ceramic centre and concluded by thanking all those who played a role to make the program at the centre a successful one, especially the Aurora Foundation.
