Challenge

During the 2014-2015 Ebola Crisis in West Africa, families were devastated as the infection spread through communities, resulting in the deaths of entire families. In some instances, the children survived and became orphans.

Solution

This project helps take care of children who lost both parents during the Ebola epidemic in Sierra Leone. We are providing the best care for these orphans as we possibly can. The kids are encouraged to dream again and taught that they can be and do anything by giving them a bright future, ensuring they do not have undesirable lifestyles. Our support includes food, clothing, school-related expenses, and psycho-social support/counseling. Our current focus is 3 orphans who are too old to be adopted

Long-Term Impact

This project offers tremendous benefits in terms of being able to help these 3 deserving orphans grow and mature into model adults that will impact their communities and nation - and even the world. These children will have the opportunity to use their education to be change agents in their communities. Young leaders who found the value of their own dreams will pass that hope along to future generations, uplifting their community.
