Nutritious Meals for Ebola Orphans
Every day, we have the opportunity to take care of 22 Ebola orphans at the Dream Home. The proverb says "It takes a village to raise a child". One of the ongoing challenges is covering the costs to provide nutritious meals to the 22 Ebola orphans each day. Your support will cover the costs of nutritious meals for the Dream Home children for four months.
Help Provide a Scholarship for Mabinty's Education
Mabinty is an orphan due to Ebola and resides in the Dream Home orphanage. This past summer Mabinty took her National Primary School Examination and has just started Junior Secondary School. Mabinty would like to be an accountant when she grows up so that she can help improve the country's economy. This project will provide a full scholarship for Mabinty covering her tuition, books, school supplies and related school expenses this year.
Provide Books & School Supplies to Children
Many families in Sierra Leone live far below the poverty line and school is completely out of their reach due to the many costs to send a child to school. This project will raise the funds to ship much needed school books and school supplies to children in Sierra Leone. By providing school books and school supplies to these families it reduces the school related costs making school possible for the children in Sierra Leone.
Psycho-Social & Guidance Counseling for 30 Girls
The education of many girls in Sierra Leone is threatened by early marriage, teenage pregnancy, sexual abuse and exploitation, domestic workload, etc. As a result of one or more of these factors, many girls drop out of school permanently. This project will address this by providing Psycho-social & Guidance Counseling for 30 Girls. The intervention is significant as it will empower the girls, providing them with knowledge and essential life skills that they need to succeed as women.
Scholarships for 3 Sisters to Continue Schooling
These 3 sisters became orphans due to Ebola. Flourence is now in class 3 and would like to be a minister when she grows up. Hannah's in class 5 and wants to be a banker when she grows up. Fatmata is now in class 7 and would like to be doctor. These sisters live in the Dream Home orphanage and this project will help these sisters complete another year of school. It will also help cover the costs of housing, clothes, medical needs and nutritious meals.
Help Ship School Supplies to Students in Liberia
Funds from this project will help ship much needed school books and school supplies to children in Liberia. The average classroom in Liberia does not have adequate school supplies. Together we can change this. These supplies will boost and support education - providing to the kids the much-needed learning resources. Donated books and school supplies are awaiting shipment in Tennessee and will be delivered in 2-3 months.
Help Purchase 300 Chicks for Dream Home Poultry
This project will purchase 300 day-old chicks to launch the poultry house to benefit the Dream Home. This will provide a 3-fold benefit as follows: reliable, sustainable, on-going income towards the running costs of the orphanage, fresh eggs daily - a steady supply of high-quality protein for the orphans and an educational / learning opportunity for the orphans - where they can learn responsibility and management.
Solar Lights for Students with No Electricity
Kamawornie is a village in Northern Sierra Leone and is not connected to the electricity grid - with no power supply. At night, for lighting, they have no choice but to use kerosene lanterns and open-flame candles. The smoke from these light sources is hazardous to their health. The flames are also a fire hazard. This project is helping to address this by providing safe, renewable, solar-powered lights to kids and youths.
Provide Life-Saving Malaria Medication
Despite tremendous progress in using insecticide treated nets to provide a physical barrier against mosquitoes, malaria remains an acute public health concern in Sierra Leone . In 2015, there were 214 million new cases of malaria reported, and approximately 438,000 people died of this treatable disease. 70 per cent of the new cases were children under 5 years of age. This project will provide medication to children infected by malaria - that will help them recover from this disease.
Medical Priority - Meeting Health Needs of Orphans
We recently had a medical physical check up for the 22 Ebola orphans that reside in the Dream Home. Aisha & Mabinty need prescription eye glasses. This is needed for general use and for reading. We have an on-going need for malaria medication. There other ongoing medical needs for the Dream Home children including vaccinations and standard medications (cold medicine, Tylenol etc). This project will help cover the medical needs for the 22 orphans at the Dream Home.
