About This Campaign
Sponsor A Village is an opportunity to help a village in Sierra Leone overcome the obstacles of extreme poverty, illiteracy and endemic disease through committed partnership. Over the last ten years Mercy Hospital has provided medical outreach to a network of villages surrounding Bo. Two years ago, the Child Rescue Centre launched a sponsorship program to reach the villages, so that children can go to school and receive case management services. Recognizing that the best way to support a community is to strengthen the family, Helping Children Worldwide is expanding services to these villages with a three year plan to provide family empowerment programs, micro-finance training, sanitation, clean water sources, school development and improved infrastructure. Churches, families, individuals and organizations are invited to join our Sponsor A Village initiative with a monthly or annual commitment over three years. You can also fund an individual project such as a well or sanitation system, or the entire village development project.
