Shelter for Abused Girls in Sierra Leone

To all our donors, colleagues, friends and family:

We are happy to report that our participation in the Global Giving "Little-by-Little" campaign held for five days in April, 2018 helped us in our continued efforts to help the shelter for abused girls which was created by Commit + Act.

The contributions we received will help us in our efforts to maintain sustainability for our shelter.

We are now in the process of getting solar panels installed and we will be getting the farm tools and equipment, together with seeds so we can start our farm/garden, so that the girls can learn how to cultivate these seeds to provide them with nutritious and healthful meals.

We are blessed to have such faithful donors, and we were blessed much more when a special donor, who we will tell you all about in our next report, contributed greatly to our girls shelter.

We are totally grateful to all our donors - we could not continue the work we began a few years ago, without the kindness and heartfelt contributions that have been made to our cause.

We thank you all from the bottom of our hearts.

In gratitude, 

Dr. Jennifer Nardozzi

Shelter for Abused Girls in Sierra Leone

To all our donor, friends, colleagues and family:

 

We thank all of you for your support and donations and for the help which you have shown in our efforts to build the shelter for abused girls in Bo, Sierra Leone.

We have good news:

1.   We are able to accommodate more girls due to the expansion of the shelter.

2.   We have purchased new beds for all the girls.

3. We have corrected the problem with the ravine that caused a great deal of flooding by building a retaining wall to prevent future overflows and flooding.

4. We are investigating purchasing new solar panels but would need to raise funds.

5.   We have hired new staff to help us manage the shelter and take care of the residents, which, has been costly, but necessary.

All of the above has cost our group an increased outlay of funds, so we are once again at the point of beginning a new fund raising campaign to help us pay for all the improvements, outlays and expenses. We are grateful that we are now helping more young women as they struggle with the problems that continues to exist in one of the poorest country in the world.

We ask for your assistance and continued good will and hopefully, your generosity will contiue as we continue to grow.

We thank you and appreciate with grateful heart all of what you have done in our work.

On behalf of the abused girls now residing in our shelter (and many more to come as we continue to grow), please accept our heartfelt thanks.

In gratitude,

Dr. Jen

Report on Shelter for Abused Girls in Sierra Leone

To all our friend and donors to the Girls Shelter in Bo, Sierra Leone:

We want to file this report and let all our friends and donors know that we continue to be grateful for the donations we have received to help us rebuild the shattered Girls Shelter in Bo, Sierra Leone.

We have made many advances with the shelter despite the various problems we encountered because of the flooding and heavy rains. 

         *  We have repaired the generator which was ruined because of the flooding.

         *  All the mattresses were replaced.

         *  We replaced the clothing of the girls and women that had been carried off due to the flooding.

         *  We have built a barrier in front of the shelter so that there will be no flooding in the future.

         *  We are now teaching the girls skills at the computer school.

         *  And we have finally secured a stable internet at the shelter.

Although we have not reached our goal in raising funds to complete the shelter, all our teams are working very hard to raise funds and we are hopeful for the continued support of our friends and donors from all over the world.

We thank each of you for your help and in this season of "Good Cheer" we wish everyone a very Happy and Blessed Holiday.

In gratitude,

Dr. Jen
