World Changing Centre  water  project hope to commence soon after rhe project design is completed  next month. We are still raising funds because of the budget and  your contribution will  continue to make a  big difference. Our team and volunteers are also  working hard  to access information by   involving the community volunteers. At the moment we are trying  to construct water well in this community to help with the building constructions. Our teustee team will  also be visiting Sierra Leone mid 2020 to start the ground work  and WCC will continue to  send project report every three months.

Thanks for being part of WCC possibilities

WCC will continue to Maximise the learning experience of the children will necessitate the provision of the complete health infrastructure. WCC will also improve the quality of life of young people by improving the health and sanitation facilities and providing various educational opportunities to advance their economic prospects and qulaity of life.

 As an organisation, WCC supports research on child poverty in Africa. Intuitively, the main means of escaping poverty is education, taken in its broadest sense (formal and informal schooling, skills training and knowledge acquisition).WCC aims to give the children and young people in Maboikardor a health service fit for the 21st century. This will improve the capability in the near future. There is is still desperate need of water supply in Sierra Leone. Young people have to walk 3 to 4miles everyday just to fetch water needed for their households. In addition some of the water these young people collect from the streams is sometimes unhealthy and unsafe for drinking due to upstream contamination such as human faeces etc. As a result WCC aims to construct an additional three water wells in the community adding to the one already donated as an approach to counter the poor water situation in Freetown )Calabatown ).

Our school and healthcare  building construction is presently at Maboikardor. One of the sixteen (16) villages combined to formed the Molambay Area located in the Western Area Rural District of Sierra Leone and, Waterloo serves as its capital for Local Government Authorities.The entire Molambay Area has a population of 12,000 and, 800 of these are inhabitant of Maboikardor. This Eastern settlement has a large expanse of flat land and is interlocked with very rich inland valley swamps, making it easy for the development of large scale market gardening. This endowed resources before the outbreak of the Ebola tragedy had influenced a greater percentage of the population to be engaged in profitable self-employed agricultural activities.

 

This Eastern settlement has a large expanse of flat land and is interlocked with very rich inland valley swamps, making it easy for the development of large scale market gardening. This endowed resources before the outbreak of the Ebola tragedy had influenced a greater percentage of the population to be engaged in profitable self-employed agricultural activities.

As a result of the keen economic potential, these communities possess a lot of people of diverse economic interest. The populations are mostly youthful and, are determined to make a difference in their socio-economic status.  Sadly though, the socio-economic activities of these people and that of the entire country of Sierra Leone came to a halt due to the outbreak of the deadly Ebola virus in 2014. And as result of this tragedy, education came to a standstill, business crumbled as peoples movement were restricted by the government to avoid the spread of the virus during that time.  After the virus was contained in 2015/16, many of the inhabitants in the Molambay were to not able to recover their lost and are today left in abject poverty.

 

Education and healthcare, especially for women and children are of great challenge to these communities. There is only one government primary school located in one of this community about few kilometer walk from Maboikardor and the nearest Secondary School is about 7km.  Pupils and students would have to trek on foot each day to and from School. This challenge has led to high rate of dropout of boys and girls from schools.  And many of the older students have gone into small scale backyard gardening to help support their families since; they cannot continue to pursue higher education because of the lack of funding.

World Changing Centre (WCC) aims to deliver community improvement projects through it’s educational, healthcare and sanitation facilities in Sierra Leone. In hopes of building a better and self-sufficient future for the communities, WCC provides its services to children and young people..

 Water, sanitation and hygiene (WASH) are critical interventions to improve the health of the population of Sierra Leone.

Evidence suggests that improved water sources reduce diarrhea morbidity by 21%; improved sanitation reduces diarrhea morbidity by 37.5%; and the simple act of washing hands at critical times can reduce the number of diarrhea cases by as much as 35%. Improvement of drinking-water quality, such as point-of-use disinfection, would lead to a 45% reduction of diarrhea episodes (CDC)

Access to WASH also affects whether girls attend school because girls are more likely to be responsible for collecting water for the family, and lack of sanitation in schools especially for menstruating girl’s means they are less likely to attend and remain in school.

Worldwide, millions of people are infected with neglected tropical diseases (NTDs), many of which are water and/or hygiene-related, such as Guinea Worm Disease, Buruli Ulcer, Trachoma, and Schistosomiasis. These diseases are most often found in places with unsafe drinking water, poor sanitation, and insufficient hygiene practices; Hygiene refers to the conditions and practices that help maintain health and prevent spread of disease including handwashing, menstrual hygiene management and food hygiene. (CDC)

Access to sanitation is limited in Sierra Leone; 8% of rural and 24% of urban population have access to safely managed sanitation. The most recent data from the Demographic and Household Survey (DHS 2013) shows 66% of urban population use latrines, 7% open defecation. In rural areas only 36% use latrines, with 26% practicing open defecation, (amounting to more than 1 million people).

WCC aims to provide children and young people in Sierra Leone with improved quality of life and access to up to date educational services.The focus of the school will be educational development and health awareness. WCC will use sport, drama and other arts activities as a tool for engagement, along with strategies and programmes to engage and enhance knowledge retention and growth. The project will assist 5,000 children over the 3 years of the project.

In are in the process of building a  permanent residence which is  required to sustain a foundational and positive environment for the development of our students future. The need to secure the future of the school for the benefit of the community is vital. Losing funds on paying rent does not provide investment opportunities to develop the school properly, and this is the reason for seeking a permanent residence. We intend to expand to an additional 100 students, and the growth of the physical site is of the upmost importance.

 

The Interventions

The project is going to intervene with the following activities:

Construction of the WCC Academy Building

  • Construct a new school building containing classrooms, a kitchen, toilet facilities and bathrooms using locally sourced sand, cement and workers.

 

  • Provide primary education to 500 orphans and homeless children aged 5-14 years old.

 

  • Equip the school with educational resources such as books and stationary as well as tables, chairs and a blackboard to aid effective learning.

 

  • Build an adjacent healthcare centre which is accessible to each of the community’s 20,500 inhabitants. This will be funded through future endeavors and contributors.

 

Offer extracurricular activities such as sporting activities and field trips.

There is a desperate need of water supply in Sierra Leone. Many people, especially women and girls have to walk 3 to 4 miles every day just to fetch water needed for their households. In addition, the water these people collect from the streams is sometimes unhygienic and unsafe for drinking due to upstream contamination. To remedy the issue, WCC aims to construct five water wells in the community adding to the one already donated as an approach to counter the poor access to water.

 

The communities in Sierra Leone are in dire need of water supply. Many citizens of Sierra Leone, especially women/girls have to walk 3 to 4 miles every day just to fetch water needed for their household. Moreover, the water that they fetch is contaminated, leading to numerous water borne diseases. Therefore, the WCC water project will provide safe drinking water which in turn breaks the vicious cycle of poverty, enhances child health development and strengthens community partnerships. The water project aids in overcoming the water crisis and also in overall development by offering an alternative.

 

In order to meet the above objectives, Kamaray FAMILY  donated 4 acres of land situate, lying and being at Maboikandoh Village, Newton, Ward C aforesaid to WCC and shall execute a deed of conveyance in favour of WCC when required to do so; WCC shall construct a primary school, health care centre for mothers and babies, football pitch, staff quarters and resource centres on the said land.Upon execution of this MoU which we have completed, WCC has also  survey the said land and the Kamaray Family through Madam Rita Kamaray who is in the porcess of executing the conveyance in favour of WCC.Each of these  building projects will have access to  clean water suppply . WCC building projects aim to start in September 2019.
