THE STORY:

Shine On Sierra Leone is dedicated to redirecting the lives of the men, women and children of Sierra Leone. Our goal is to shine a light on Sierra Leone’s vibrant population and to create sustainable programs that promote thriving and self-sufficient communities.

Shine on Sierra Leone (SOSL) 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 and sustainable development. SOSL focuses on increasing access to all levels of education and has six fully developed and executed initiatives including primary education, adult literacy, computer literacy, micro lending, maternal and child healthcare and sustainable development using the earth-bag building method.

The flagship program funds 500 students receiving a free and excellent education in a school that was once ranked 600 and is now in the top five in aptitude testing nationwide, a nationwide computer literacy program that has resulted in 12,000 computer literate individuals nationwide thus far, more than 5,000 micro lending loans for small business owners especially women, and in response to Sierra Leone having the highest maternal and child mortality rates on the planet, SOSL has developed a maternal and child health care program in partnership with Wellbody Alliance and supported by the First Lady of Sierra Leone in the region of Kono.
