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

Build A New Home for Ebola Orphans in Sierra Leone
The Ebola Crisis left more than 4500 children as orphans. These children lost not only their parents, but also their homes - shelter and a safe place to sleep at night. The current Dream Home orphanage is a rented facility that is not ideal. It is not fenced, is on a hill and has no common dining room area that can seat all kids. Room layout and other options / facilities are not ideal. This project will build or purchase a new home to serve the needs of these young children. project reportread updates from the field
Empowering Lives Through Solar Power & Technology
Tens of thousands of kids and youths in Sierra Leone study at night using kerosene lanterns and open-flame candles. Many of them are unable to benefit from education programs that are broadcast by the Education Ministry because they do not have radios or batteries. This project will provide renewable technology including solar lamps and solar radios, solar-powered eReaders / laptops - focused on providing a safe and less expensive way for the future leaders of Sierra Leone to study project reportread updates from the field
Educational Lifeline For 100 Pregnant Girls
During the Ebola epidemic in Sierra Leone, teenage girls (particularly those orphaned when their families passed away) were out of school and more vulnerable to rape and sexual assault. These visibly pregnant girls are not being allowed to return to school and are at grave risk of dropping out of school permanently. Project will help to address this by providing an appropriate educational alternative for 100 pregnant girls to ensure they can make educational progress. project reportread updates from the field
Help Care For Ebola Orphans in Sierra Leone
This project provides a safe haven - an orphanage called the Dream Home - to help raise children who lost BOTH parents during the Ebola epidemic in Sierra Leone. The goal of the home is to provide the best care for these orphans as we possibly can. It is a place where they are able to dream again - and they are taught that they can be and do anything. By catering for the needs of these children, we are giving them a bright future and ensuring that they do not resort to undesirable lifestyles. project reportread updates from the field
