The goal of our organization is to promote education and development in Sierra Leone.
Education for kids – especially for girls – has been proven to be a most effective tool for development in many African countries.
We want to give children in poor families a chance for regularly attending school. Our organization pays school fees and other costs incurred by sending the kids to school like e.g. school uniforms and training materials. We are working on site with parents and school representatives to assess the needs and requirements.

Basic Approach
We are working together with a local support organization and have the ability to bring our help directly to the sponsored families and to obtain first hand information about the situation in their villages. Please, read the attached brochure on our acitivities in Sierra Leone. You will also find a description of the general living conditions in this country.
