Record label opens a school in Sierra Leone

Lost on You is the electronic record label making a difference in Sierra Leone. The record label has collaborated with charity Street Child to open a primary school for children in Sierra Leone, opening on the 6th of September.

The primary school is in Bath-Sint, a village community in Lokomasama, Port Loko in Sierra Leone. Lost on You’s collaborators Street Child is a charity that supports children to go to school to learn in some of the world’s poorest communities.

Lost on You are donating 100% of album proceeds to the fight against starvation, poor health, and sanitary problems in the world’s most deprived places. The Lost on You record label is the first electronic music label to do this.

The project required the record label to raise around €12,000 to build the school. Given the constraints of a pandemic, it was a massively challenging task, however, they managed to host a charity event at the internationally renowned French club REX in Paris with Thomas Schumacher and Noir performing as part of the event.

Refusing to settle at one event the label continued to create alternative fundraising plans and collaborated with Beatport to host an online event on 17th March with 12 artists performing an online show.

The incredible work did not stop there and once the funding target had been met, they were able to build the school. Since the beginning of September, the school has had 207 children attending five days a week in six fully-equipped classrooms.

Founders Nina Lach and Osvaldo Felices Martinez plan to support more programmes like this, setting themselves the target of building one school a year. In addition, the label supports numerous charitable projects and currently work with Against Malaria and Build Africa.

All the while, they have managed to release 18 EP’s since their birth in 2020 and one VA EP promoting emerging artist talent.
