Project Update

Sierra Leone continues to be ranked as one of the poorest countries in the world. It is against this backdrop that our organization has been supporting poor and less-privileged women in the country by offering them much needed skills to enable them create jobs for themselves thereby becoming self-reliant.

AID Sierra Leone has also been conducting  awareness raising activities against all forms of Abuse against Women.

During the period under review, the organization provided skills training programs to 20 young women in the Funkia community, Freetown.

Our sensitization programs in relation to women's empowerment, discrimination and abuse continue to positively impact the lives of women in the country.

We say a big thank you to our partners and friends who donated their hardearned cash towards this project through the GlobalGiving platform. Together, we're changing the lives of poor and disadvantaged women in Sierra Leone.

Project Update

In Arusha, Tanzania, the organization has been providing tuition fees, school uniforms, shoes, books to primary and secondary school girls. Funds raised through the Global Giving platform helped us provide additional books and other school supplies for 15 of these girls. 

Why focus on educating Girls in Tanzia?

In Tanzania, nearly half (47%) of primary school aged girls are not attending school. Between 2004 and 2010, even though pregnancy among Tanzanian girls aged 15 to 19 years fell by about 12%, still, more than 40% of young women begin having children by age 18, and the country has one of the highest adolescent pregnancy rates in the world. (UNICEF) Girls in urban areas of Tanzania were eight times more likely to finish secondary education than girls in rural areas.

It is against this backdrop that we're focusing on supporting the less-privileged girls, especially those in rural areas as they face the greatest challenge in acquiring any form of education.

We want to take this opportunity to thank our partners and friends who donated their hard-earned cash towards this project. Please be rest assured that through your generous support, you're positively impacting the lives of young girls in Arusha, Tanzania. Once more, Thank You!

Project Update

The poverty profile in Sierra Leone affirms that young people, especially between the ages of 15 and 35 are among the poorest of the poor. Many of them are illiterate, school dropouts, unemployed and idle, living in deplorable conditions, especially in rural areas.

In an effort to help curb these challenges, AID Sierra Leone has been providing regular entrepreneurship training programs to help youth become self-reliant and also contribute to the socio-economic development of their communities. 

In addition to existing resources, we have been able to use funds raised through the Global Giving platform to provide skills training for an additional 15 youths within the Wellington community in Freetown.

We're grateful to our partners and friends who donated their hard-earned cash towards this project through the GlobalGiving platform. Your precious donations contributed greatly in helping youths in Sierra Leone rise above extreme poverty and also be able to secure much needed entrepreneurship skills.
