BENEFITING: SHINE ON SIERRA LEONE
Mission Statement: Shine On Sierra Leone is a human service foundation working to support the people of Sierra Leone as they rebuild their nation - with a particular focus on education, micro loans for women, healthcare, computer literacy and sustainable development. We are creating a paragon of education by forming unique partnerships that combine the resources of philanthropists, NGO's, the Sierra Leonean government and most importantly, the inspired community. The result is a community body, which, over time, is fully sustained, economically stable and centered on education.
In the last 6 years, SOSL has helped our flagship school, Muddy Lotus Primary School rank from #600 out of 736 schools in the district to #3! We are so proud and honored to have been a part of this journey.
Now, after these students graduate from Muddy Lotus, they have to endure an 18 mile roundtrip walk to their secondary school. Shine On Sierra Leone hopes that with your support, we can raise enough money to build a new secondary school in the area. These students have nothing but enthusiasm and determination when it comes to education so they are willing to make that walk for a chance at a better future. We would love to make that chance a few steps closer by building their school in the community.
