Dear Sir/Madam,

Yegesie University Academy YUA, is an educational charity institution for poor and needy children and youth out of school. YUA is kindly requesting for a facility lacking in the community of Makeni city. The Makeni city, the city and headquarter town of the Bombali district, Northern province of Sierra Leone is now a city without a track and field venue for sporting events. We are requesting partnership with EngineerAid on the need of a community mini track and field venue.

YUA has a strong working relationship with communities since 2004. YUA does not have the financial resources to hire nor construct this mini stadium. In the Makeni city and even the whole country, there is no Track and field area for sporting activities that combines various athletic contests based on the skills, work and dedication towards running, jumping, and throwing.

All school sporting activities which include sprints, middle and long-distance events, and hurdling, are not undertaken in a safe environment. At times they are not practice due to lack of space. Regular jumping events which include long jump, triple jump, high jump and pole vault, while the most common throwing events which are shot put, javelin, discus and hammer are not easy to practice too. Because of lack of this, young people do not compete for Championships and in Association of Athletics Federations.

YUA need a community design sustainable and appropriate solutions for mini track and field venue in Makeni city, to be constructed in Mathinka/Mabanta axis. The track and field should have no football space and it must be purely a track and field zone.
YUA, the communities and the broader environment, will be grateful if the Engineering Service Corps volunteer(s) will work as an integral part in order to balance the technical challenges with sustainable solutions.

We would be glad to hear from you in this regards,
