Sisterland Project

Empowering Women

Many women and children are living precariously on the streets of Freetown in Sierra Leone.

Our new project plans to give shelter and training (for around 6 months) to these homeless mothers to enable them to become self sufficient. This project is moving forward quickly. We have acquired the three year lease of a property in Freetown. Before we open the doors we have to make essential property improvements and acquire furnishings and household items and personal items for the mothers and children.

Kids Action is a small charity run entirely by volunteers. Any help you can give to support this project no matter what size will go directly towards the project work without deduction.

What help can you give?

GOODS AND FURNISHINGS:
We have acquired sponsorship of a container to be shipped to Freetown from Aberdeen in December/January and we are looking for donations of any kind to help furnish and supply the home and provide for the mothers and children. Household and personal items that any home with children requires. Even as basic as soap or nappies. Contact us by email, tell us what you can give and we shall collect. alastair@kidsaction.org.uk

FUNDING:
No project can have long term success without sustainability.

We plan to improve the upstairs floor to provide five ensuite bedrooms and use these to accommodate women on a paying basis who are visiting Sierra Leone. We expect most will be working short term for a International Charities.

Any funds provided to help establish this part of the project will ensure that we can be there to help women and children for many years to come.

If you want to support financially please either contact us direct at alastair@kidsaction.org.uk or go direct to https://www.justgiving.com/kidsaction
