THE STORY:

The foundation was formed in September 2014. It is a religious, a non-profit, a non-political, a non-governmental and charity youth-led based foundation. It primarily focuses on improving, empowering, promoting, providing provisional support such as education, healthcare and warm bed for children and youths. The idea of forming Heaven Seekers Youth Foundation Sierra Leone was initiated by pro-active, articulate dynamic and religious minded youths, who strongly believe that with concerted efforts by empowered organizations and individuals we will help youths, less privileged, orphans, vulnerable children, abandoned children, and street children to live with a descent and meaningful life in the society. This will lead to the reduction of poverty, child abuse, child prostitution, early child marriage, domestic violence on children, teenage pregnancy and gangster attitude. The Heaven Seekers Youth Foundation Sierra Leone believe children have the right to participate in communities and have programs and services for themselves, and for the right of children to be protected from any form of abuse, neglect, exploitation and discrimination. At Heaven Seekers Youth Foundation, we are dedicated to provide positive influence, to help to raise the standards of young people, to engage and teach them valuable life skills, self-empowerment, building their characters with moral principles and to help them identify their God-given talents. This will stand to reinforce the importance role young teenagers can play in the lives of Sierra Leone’s next generation. What have we done? The children are our future and that is up to us to provide a place where children can express themselves. As a way of boosting the girl child education, H.S.Y.F supported thirty two(32) girls attending various secondary schools (six schools) in Kabala, Koinadugu District with scholarships, and learning materials. Some of the girls are orphans, early child marriage treat victims and some are abandoned children. We embarked on an operation called save our lunch which we upheld for almost two (2) years and also with the help of our Board of Trustees, few families and individuals we decided to help in the reduction of teenage pregnancy and promote girl child education campaigns with the theme “girls education matters therefore teenage pregnancy must be reduced.” Why we need your help? We can’t wait for another two years before we can create impact on the lives of those children. We want to continue to provide for them their basic necessities and school needs. We believe when the tender shoot of a plant is fed well, it grows up well, similarly if children in the family and society are well taken care of; with food, education and everything they will grow up well and take care of the family and the society in the future. This is our dream, help us to continue living this dream.
