These associations were formed by former students who want to give back to their alma mater and interact with the peers.  Their goals and objectives are:


Over the years these associations have organized regular fundraising events to fund major projects at the school.


Between 1992 and 2002, schools in Sierra Leone, including the Methodist Girls’ High School, experienced challenges during the decade old civil war. As of today, education in Sierra Leone is still recovering from the destruction caused by the conflict, and the country continues to struggle with its education system, and the difficult tasks of rebuilding schools, and training teachers. Overcrowded classrooms, also an effect of the war, resulted in the Ministry of Education adopting a two-shift system for all schools. Currently, this two-shift system has become untenable and the Ministry of Education has requested all high schools to revert to a one-shift system with no resources for a smooth transition.


Obtaining funds to revert to a one-shift system is a priority for the Alumnae Diaspora. The Diaspora has been holding regular meetings to collaborate with the Methodist Girls’ High School Board of Governors, and the two Principals to provide support for this uphill task of merging these two-shifts. Because of the astronomical cost for these additional classrooms, the group has embarked on a Gofundme project for this purpose. (https://www.gofundme.com/f/mghs-fundraising)
