Sierra Leone Scholarships  

THANK YOU for your interest in sponsoring one of our Sierra Leone students! Your generosity not only shows our vision here at Bethel but also displays God's heart! For just $21/month (or a one-time donation of $252), you can personally invest in a life-changing education by sponsoring a student or supporting GEM Academy. Each child sponsorship includes tuition and school fees, two uniforms, two pairs of shoes, textbooks, a backpack, and exam fees for one year.

Please Read Carefully Before Donating:

1.) If you're wanting to donate to the general GEM School fund, please select "GEM School Donation" from the dropdown menu. These funds will help provide meals for the students, classroom teaching supplies for the teachers, or ongoing maintenance needs of the aging primary school building.

2.) If you'd like to donate a custom amount, please select "Other" from the dropdown menu. After you enter your information, please click "Register and Donate" and you will be able to enter your custom amount.

3.) You can select which type of donation you'd like to contribute for the Students or GEM School Donation:
  • MONTHLY: $21 per month. After you enter your information, you will click Register & Donate. You will need to select "Recurring" and you can pick the date of your recurring donation.
  • ONE-TIME: $252 or the custom amount you choose will be charged after you enter your information and click Register & Donate.
If you're sponsoring a specific child from the website, select the name of the child from the dropdown menu. If you do not see the child's name this means they have already been sponsored! Click here to view the students in need of a scholarship.

If at any point you have questions, please email Jeff Bice at Again, thank you for making a difference in a child's life! We are so grateful for your support!
