Sierra Leone

Children in Sierra Leone face many obstacles including poverty and high rates of preventable diseases to survive. Additionally, the 11-year bloody civil war (which ended in 2002), devastating Ebola outbreak and the current effects of climate have left an already poor population much more vulnerable.

Our team has been working in Sierra Leone since 1996, during the civil war. We partner with local actors and the Government to improve the well-being of all children.

Through our  work in 25 Area Development Programs, we are striving to improve the health and nutrition, access to education and protection of all children as we empower families and communities to care for the most vulnerable children.
