Lift a Village is a grassroot organization based in the United States that funds the education and care of underprivileged children in Sierra Leonean villages and slums. Since 2014, we have provided more than 400 disadvantaged children ages 6-18, from kindergarten to 12th grade, with a personal education program tailored specifically to their needs. This holistic approach enables children to break the cycle of poverty and reach their full potential. To effectively serve our targeted population, the organization focuses on the following critical areas:
Throughout the 8 areas we support: Makeni, Port Loko, Kono, Gbinti, Kabala, Bo, Kenema, and Freetown, each child is provided with the following support:
Through our efforts, we strive to make it possible for children to lay hold of the tools they need to succeed academically and in life. Our personal and holistic approach does not only transform the lives of the children we serve, it also empowers their communities.
Every year, our Founder and Executive Director and a team of volunteers travel directly to each and every village and slum and interact with children, educators, and community leaders to personally conduct needs assessments and propose solutions. This approach is what Aisha calls the “Lift a Village Promise” to assure donors that every donation whether monetary or in-kind goes directly to the programs and intended beneficiaries. In addition, we also provide direct outcome reports to donors and seek feedback from communities we serve how to improve our impact.
