A changing of the guard is underway at the production company formerly led by Georgia Democratic Sen. Jon Ossoff.

Many countries are caught off guard, trying to find a way to keep children at home with their education. However, in Sierra Leone, we are prepared for school closures caused by such epidemics. The interactive radio teaching program that we established during the 2014-16 Ebola crisis means that we are ready to provide distance education to millions of students.
