Thank you for helping women imprisoned in Sierra Leone

By Alix Guerrier | CEO

Dear Project of the Month Club Member,

In Sierra Leone, illiteracy and poverty have contributed to growing numbers of people being sent to prison, where they often face cramped and unsanitary conditions. In particular, women can be imprisoned for years with poor access to healthcare and limited contact with family. Our November Project of the Month, AdvocAid, provides vital education, counseling, and welfare support for these women and their families.

When Executive Director Zynab Binta Kamara learned that AdvocAid had been selected as the Project of the Month, they shared:

“Your donation will contribute greatly to addressing AdvocAid’s vision of a Sierra Leone where women and girls’ human rights are respected and protected...It will also enable us to continue driving a sustainable and impactful change in Sierra Leone. Women will be able to have alternatives especially regarding livelihoods; they will go through skills training and leave detention as part of a sustainable change.”

To learn more about how AdvocAid is supporting women in Sierra Leone, check out their most recent report

Thank you so much for your generosity.

With gratitude, 

Alix Guerrier 

GlobalGiving CEO
