Our Mission

Support our mission by creating your own fundraiser.

Our mission is to shine the light on Sierra Leone’s needs and create sustainable programs to promote thriving self-sufficient communities.

It’s a country that is the size of South Carolina. It has beaches with sunsets that will melt your heart. It also has some of the highest rainfalls in the world, and it barely survived a brutal 11-year civil war that was ignited by the blood diamond crisis. The post- war facts about Sierra Leone are not easy to digest. Sierra Leone is a country that is the second lowest ranked country on the Human Development Index, has the lowest life expectancy at under 45 years of age, ranks last in healthcare globally, and the average GDP is a mere $400, which makes it the 7th poorest country. Due to the horrendous civil war, it has minimal infrastructure (if any in many regions), 1/3 of the population has been displaced into slums, and tens of thousands of children are recovering from having been abducted and forced into battle.

Despite encountering countless tragedies, the people of Sierra Leone are filled with resilience and genuine hope. We see the true Sierra Leone. We think of beautiful beaches, wonderful warm people, and an incredible generation of young people that believe in peace and a new bright future. Which is why Shine On Sierra Leone exists…because we believe that these young people deserve the support and opportunity to rebuild their lives, their country, and the world.

We’re hoping you’ll join us on this incredible adventure and see just how spectacular Sierra Leone and our world can be…

“Once you choose hope, anything’s possible."
