BENEFITING: SHINE ON SIERRA LEONE

EVENT: 2012 ING New York City Marathon - $1 Mil a Mile

EVENT DATE: Nov 04, 2012

THE STORY:

 

Shine on Sierra Leone is a cutting-edge international NGO founded almost 6 years ago.  Our focus is increasing access to all levels of education, and we have had an AWESOME 6 year run: SOSL has six fully developed and executed initiatives including primary education, adult literacy, computer literacy, micro lending, agricultural investment, and sustainable development using the earth-bag building method. Our 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 now a healthcare program supported by the First Lady of Sierra Leone and Wellbody Alliance.

 

We believe in partnership, not charity and our results show that this mindset is powerful to say the least.  Shine On Sierra Leone relies on individual donors to fuel its programs.  Every single penny of your donation will go towards supporting SOSL programs.  It doesn't matter how much you donate...each dollar represents an opportunity for growth.  This breakdown will show the difference each dollar makes...

  • $20 = Monthly Tuition and School Supplies for one student.
