Building Communities in
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.
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.
