Project Report

In Sierra Leone, the poverty profile affirms that young people between the ages of 15 and 24 (youth) are among the poorest of the poor. Many of them are illiterate, school dropouts, unemployed and idle, living in deplorable conditions in and around the Western Area District.

In an effort to help curb these challenges, we have been providing regular entrepreneurship training programs such as the Business Development Services to help youth become self-reliant and also contribute to the socio-economic development of their communities.

We continue to thank 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.

Project Updates

Through the Ebola Orphans Aid project, AID Sierra Leone has been supporting children orphaned by the deadly Ebola virus. We've been able to use the funds raised so far through the GlobalGiving platform to help provide much needed food, clothing, school supplies, trauma counselling for at least 20 Orphans in the country. The organization also carried out radio sensitization programs on stigmatization, marginalization and abuse in respect of Ebola Orphans.

Regardless of the challenges we face, the organization is determined and committed to providing much needed food, clothing, school materials, and social counselling to orphans in Sierra Leone.

We would like to express our sincere gratitude to our partners and friends who donated their hard-earned cash towards this project through the GlobalGiving platform.

Project Updates

Primary school enrollment in Africa continues to be among the lowest in the world. 33 million children do not go to school and 18 million of these are girls. 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.

AID Tanzania is currently providing tuition fees, school uniforms, shoes, books, to about 20 girls in the Arusha rural community, Tanzania. Out of the funds raised through the Global Giving platform helped in providing additional books and other school materials for 5 primary school girls.

We are truly grateful to our partners and friends who donated their hard-earned cash towards this project in making sure that girls in Tanzania aquire quality education.
