Dear Donors, Colleagues, Family and Friends:

 

We are pleased to let you know that our Sierra Leone Director, Ms. Hannah Bockarie was invited to the Leadership Conference in Ghana, where she made an impression on the participants with her report on the Shelter for Abused Girls in Sierra Leone.

Ms. Bockarie is giving the keynote address at the forthcoming ACBS World Conference which will be held in New Orleans, Louisiana July 14-19, 2020. It is a great honor to be asked to give the keynote address. In addition, we have applied to speak on Leadership at ACBS, on social enterprise being developed in Sierra Leone.

We will share with you on our next report all the good things that will take place at the ACBS World Conference in July.

We thank you for your continued support of our project.

In appreciation,

Jennifer Nardozzi, PsyD

To all our Friends, Family, Donors, Colleagues and Supporters:

We are thankful to have had good friends, family members, colleagues and specially, our Donors, who have continued to give us support and help in our activities in helping our Shelter for Abused Girls in Sierra Leone.

Because of your faith and confidence in our program, we have been able to move forward.

        *   We are updating our website: both homepages for the United States and Germany.

        *   Our Germany office offers a QuickBooks training to our accounting staff member        Lamlin, on the recommendation of Uwe, our most efficient, capable and highly valuable staff member.

         *   We are revitalizing our list of recurring donors with the view of getting them more involved in what we are doing in Sierra Leone. We are processing methods of making donation easier to do by working with PayPal and help with our fund-raising projects.

We have taken more than the first step in our "Journey of a Thousand Miles" - the beneficiaries have been the many girls who have come through our Shelter for aid, protection, education and the hope of a better future - and we CONTINUE ON with the help of ALL of you.

In gratitude,

To our friends, family, donors, colleagues and everyone:

Greetings and our best wishes to all for your help and devotion to commit + act, which supports the Shelter for Abuse Girls in Sierra Leone.

Our goals for 2019 include raising funds to support our girls' shelter throughout 2019 and provide trainings locally in Sierra Leone.

We have installed the solar panels, so our girls have fresh air and comforts they need every day.

We want to buy farming equipment such as seeds, gardening tools, cassava grater and refrigerators.

Multiply ACT, PROSOCIAL and DARE workshops in other districts in Sierra Leone.

We need $20,000 to reach our goals this year. Our vision is that in the face of all circumstances, people choose to create and live wwtheir lives according to their values and empower others to do the same. So far, our experience has shown us that through our generous donors and our committed actions, we can make a difference.

Thank you from all of us for your donation, help and commitment - we are most grateful for all of you.

In gratitude,

Dear Donors, Friends, Family and Contributors:

 

Since our last report, we would like to show you what your generous contribution and friendship has given to commit+act's Shelter for Abused Girls in Bo, Sierra Leone.

It has given us:    

 

                       A Water Tower that give the Shelter residents and volunteers and staff, safe, clean water.

                       Solar Panels - that makes life cool in the summer and warm in the winter months.

                       Cook house with space for storage - where we can save food instead of having to dispose of them for 

                       spoilage as there was truly no space to store them.

                       Reliable Vehicle which allows us to transport girls who have no means of reachig the Shelter and,

                       allows us to bring them a few minutes of relaxation and a change of pace at a local beach.

                       Vegetable Garden, which give the residents nutritious and healthy food.

Our future goals incllude building a playground for the children born out of a traumatic beginning, and for the mothers, who are still at the youthful age that they could share in the joys of childhood; a bigger shelter so we could house more abused girls.

We bring these abused girls hope for a different kind of future life, counseling to help them overcome their traumatic experience, and we can provide medical attention and examination.

Your generosity and friendship have given us the tools with which to continue the good work and to save an abused girl.

We hope and pray for your continued support and friendship.

In gratitude,

 

Dr. Jen

Dear Donors, Colleagues, Friends and Family:

Thanks to the generous contributions from all of you over the last few years that has enabled us to build a shelter for abused girls in Sierra Leone, helped women and girls who were subjected to emotional, physical and sexual abuse to recover and increase our bed capacity from 12 beds to 32 over the past year.

We finished the new shelter and helped reduce the incidence of sexual abuse among girls: 312 in 2016; 230 in 2017 and 201 in 2018.

We have improved the nutritional status of abused girls through regular feeding; we did flood prevention work by building a culvert, shelving for perishables and reinforced the well.

We opened a nursery in concert with another NGO (One Day) to allow pregnant girls at our shelter to give birth with medical support and learn how to provide their child pre- and post-natal care.

To increase communication with international organizations, we built a router tower and got working internet at the shelter. This was important since the shelter is located outside the central town of Bo.

Developed a monitoring system to track parent and caregiver responsiveness to their children's health and wellness needs.

Our needs have increased:  We need to raise $20,000 to meet our goals for 2019.

This amount will help support the shelter throughout 2019 and continue providing trainings locally in Sierra Leone; buy farming equipment such as seeds, gardening tools, cassava graters and refrigerators; and install solar panels as a way for the shelter to have reliable electricity.

On behalf of commit+act Board, we are grateful for your support and hopeful that you will continue to have our shelter in mind for whatever contribution you can give us and help us move forward with our mission.

In gratitude,

Jennifer Nardozzi, PsyD
