Friends of Conakry Refugee School is a UK registered charity run entirely by volunteers and based in Shropshire. It is the sole supporter of CRS. CRS provides a comprehensive education for approximately 500 vulnerable students enabling them to progress from kindergarten to graduation and providing them with the qualifications to continue on to vocational or Higher Education or to enter the labour market.
The curriculum is taught in English as both Liberia and Sierra Leone, the countries from which most of its pupils had fled, are English-speaking. FCRS has seed funded the setting up of an IT and Language suite allowing CRS to run community classes in IT and English language that brings in revenue and supports financial sustainability, self-respect and enhanced management skills.
