This highly inspirational song from the new compilation CD of songs was performed by actual students enrolled at the J.T. Reffell French Friendship Memorial School in Freetown, Sierra Leone, West Africa.

Reffell School was founded in 1940 for indigent children in Freetown, Sierra Leone by the Bassa Tribal Chief J.T. Reffell. Present enrollment is approximately 600 students. The brutal war for blood diamonds brought the school system to the brink of financial ruin and annihilation. Now that there is peace in Sierra Leone and Liberia, Reffell Memorial School, in partnership with the Refsta Education Consortium in Laurel, Maryland, is hosting a fundraising drive for completion of the construction of a high school to meet the educational needs of children of this war torn country, and implement an international student exchange program.

We seek donations of all kinds to help with the completion and use of the new school building. The school needs: reading books, chairs, tables, bookshelves, blackboards, chalk, paper, binders, computers, calculators and similar types of useful supplies for elementary to middle school age students. We aspire to add a high school once the main school is operational. You may contact:
