Building Communities in

Sierra Leone

In 2014, we started our mission in uplifting communities affected by the decade long civil war. When we asked the villagers what they needed, they responded that they needed health campuses and schools.

We began our work in Pujehun district, one of the most impoverished and rural regions of the country. We are currently working on our 3rd health campus and 2nd school. Each project is only completed when we have trained staff, provided solar lighting, clean water, public bathrooms, furniture, and all of the provisions needed for them to remain successful.

Build a School

Our team has established 2 thriving schools.

We partner with the district to identify run down government schools which lack a proper structure, furniture, shelter, classrooms, bathrooms and clean water. As soon we find a donor to sponsor our school, we get to work! Once we have funds, the timeline to complete the school is approximately 9-12 months.

The cost to fund an entire school building is approximately $50,000. We'll give you the tools to launch your own fundraiser. Donate the proceeds on behalf of a group, family or as a tribute to someone you love who has passed on.

Together We Can BUILD COMMUNITIES

Poverty leads to poor health outcomes. We know that by providing access to quality healthcare as well as an education we can improve knowledge, reasoning skills, social skills, and a belief in the validity of science, all of which prepare an individual to understand the value of a healthy lifestyle and how to achieve it.

Ensuring sanitation & disease reduction

We are working to reduce the instances of mosquito-borne malaria.

Malaria is the single largest cause of illness in Pujehun. At any given time, more than half of the population in our served communities will test positive.

Decreasing maternal fatalities

Sierra Leone’s maternal mortality rates are the highest in the world and a third of all infants do not live to see the age of five. Our goal is to increase child and maternal survival rates by providing free and quality access to healthcare.

Stop the Bug Program

Reducing Malaria Transmission

As we review monthly statistics and challenges at our center, we continue to see spiking malaria rates. We work to interrupt malaria transmission by depleting mosquito breeding grounds and encouraging good sanitation and self-protection.
