Families Without Borders programs are designed to spark local interest in education and economic development. Currently we are operating in Sierra Leone, a beautiful West African Country, with a lot of potential. According to the United Nations, Sierra Leone is ranked among the ten poorest countries in the world.
In Sierra Leone, electricity and running water are considered a luxury and not found in villages or even most larger towns. There are very few paved roads in the entire country. Hospitals have very limited means and supplies to function properly and medications are hard to find.
Rural communities have the least access to the already limited resources that are available in the country. Even having a water well is a luxury in the chiefdom located in Moyamba district, in the southwestern part of the Sierra Leone.
We believe education is part of the foundation for solving poverty and major global issues. In Sierra Leone, families often cannot afford to send their children to school. Access to education is especially limited in most rural areas of the country.
Along with supporting students’ education, we seek to foster economic opportunities for communities and individuals. We fund education of brilliant young men and women from families with no financial means and hold them accountable to build their own communities.
