The Government of Sierra Leone in collaboration together with the Ministry of Basic and Senior Secondary Education (MBSSE) is set to host a two-day high-level inter-governmental summit to share ideas and improve learning outcomes.

The learning exchange summit is scheduled to commence on Monday 6th February and will end on Tuesday 7th February 2023.

The program will host over 80 educational policymakers, and technical and development partners including seven Ministers of education at the Freetown International conference center.

Heads of global institutions like UNESCO institutes of statistics; the World Bank’s Global Education Director, and heads of several private foundations would also be in attendance.

According to the Minister of Basic Education, Dr. David Moinina Sengeh, this is the second major international and inter-ministerial summit hosted by the Government of Sierra Leone and the Ministry of Education.

Just like how the Freetown Manifesto shaped the global discourse on Gender transformative Leadership Education, we are confident that the ministerial communiqué out of this conference will shape how future foundational learning discourse happens and we know that the#FLEX23 will be the first but it won’t be the last,” Dr. David Sengeh added.

The summit is sponsored by the government of Sierra Leone with partners like the World Bank, UNICEF, Hempel Foundation, and the Ministry of Basic and Senior Secondary Education.
