Sierra Leone REN gives ‘life support’ to varsities

This COVID season, as national RENs (NREN) across the globe are striding and striving to support education communities in any way they could, Sierra Leone Research and Education Network (SLREN) is also doing its bit to keep academic work going in the landlocked West African nation.

The nascent NREN is supporting and in some cases hand-holding some higher learning institutions (HLIs) to navigate their way through the academic continuity challenges posed by COVID. Though it is quite herculean to keep academic work going on this side of the world, SLREN is making efforts to ensure that the challenges of its members are alleviated to some extent.
