Help 40 Students Purchase Uniforms for School
The new school year causes excitement about seeing friends and maybe a little bit of nerves with new classes and new teachers. What it should not cause is concern about whether or not the student has a uniform to wear to school. Many families cannot afford the cost of uniforms, tuition and school supplies and as a result many children in Sierra Leone are unable to complete their core education. This project will provide 40 students with two school uniforms and a pair of shoes.
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 Scholarships to Students in Need
Many families and schools in Liberia do not have the ability to ensure that their children receive a quality education. 84% percent of the population lives below the international poverty line (1.25 U.S. dollars/day), notably in rural areas (UN, 2013). This project will help 5 children with all their school related expenses-to include tuition, books, school supplies and related school expenses.
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.
Educate the Next Generation of Leaders in Freetown
This project strengthens families and schools in the area of education in Sierra Leone and addresses the education and character development of children and youths. It strategically targets weak areas that need support - including scholarships, school and teaching supplies and leadership training. As the number of school-aged children increases, the education system needs to significantly increase its capacity. The government welcomes help with meeting the education needs of the population. project reportread updates from the field
Educate a Girl, Educate a Nation - Sierra Leone
This project supports girls in Sierra Leone who are at risk of dropping out of school by providing scholarships and books / school supplies. The project also provides vocational training and business development opportunities. Traditionally, girls have been offered less educational opportunities than boys. Where family funds are limited, preference has been given to boys. This project is helping to level the playing field by promoting and supporting the education of girls. project reportread updates from the field

Empower Girls, Provide Computer Training
This project provides enhanced educational opportunities for girls in Sierra Leone through a multimedia computer lab at the FAWE school. This helps to bridge the Digital Divide and broadens learning opportunities for students and teachers alike. The girls in this school come from homes where they do not have access to computers. Literacy rates are reportedly lower for female youths (42%) and female adults (26%) due to the combined effects of war, poverty and socio-cultural practices. project reportread updates from the field
Provide a Mosquito Net, Save a Life from Malaria
Malaria, the leading cause of death among children in Africa, is caused by parasites that are transmitted through the bites of infected mosquitoes. Long-lasting insecticidal nets are a proven and effective way of reducing exposure to mosquitoes at night-time, when people are at greatest risk. Bed nets form a protective barrier around people sleeping under them. Provision of nets is a simple and highly effective way to reduce occurrence of the disease. project reportread updates from the field
Help Optimize Educational Opportunities - Cameroon
Education in the West African country of Cameroon is compulsory through to age 14 when 6 years of primary schooling are complete. Unfortunately parents are expected to pay for uniforms and book fees, which no doubt contributes to a 67% literacy rate that's skewed in favor of males. In partnership with the Cameroon Association for the Protection and Education of the Child (CAPEC), this project provides education facilities to underprivileged rural children in Cameroon. project reportread updates from the field
