GOOD DEEDS DAY IN SIERRA LEONE
Good Deeds Day was initiated in Sierra Leone in 2018. In Sierra Leone, we provide sustainable education and care to underprivileged children, youth, and young people of the Western Rural district. The goal is to overcome the social and environmental problems that deepen and perpetuate the cycle of poverty in those communities.
For the past 3 years, we have provided scholarships for over 40 children, 20 girls, and 4 young people. We have established 5 school clubs with 1,001 children within the district. We have given training to 10 girls and we reached out to 1,000 households in 15 communities to educate them about Covid-19. We have launched a microfinance scheme for local women with support from TCP GLOBAL. We have also distributed essential items for young girls with the support from “I SUPPORT THE GIRLS”.

Our main focus is on poverty, education, sanitation, flooding, high maternal mortality rate, and poor electricity systems in the country.
In March 2021, we won a WIL Empowerment grant to start tailoring school/business for 6 local women, to teach business development. We have bought the machines, started our pilot phase for the first 3 months to look at successes, failures, and challenges. The GDD Sierra Leone team also organized a massive community cleanup, developed a library in our 2 school clubs, develop a sustainable feeding program for our beneficiaries, and improved our education on health and personal hygiene at our school clubs.
