Hope for Lives in Sierra Leone was started in 2011 by Thomas 'Bobby' Smith and Bill Coleman. Their first project was the construction of two fishing boats for a community in Murraytown, near Freetown. The two original boats help feed as many as 100 people with each weekly expedition. We recently added a new larger boat to add to the fleet in the memory of Bobby's good friend, Keith Henderson. In e

Happy EASTER and be THANKFUL!!!!

Movement of Faith Primary School......

Hope For Lives in Sierra Leone, where we prioritize the disadvantaged, hence last November, after Bobby saw a video of a school with licking roof while children sitting inside writing on bare floor. This tormented his soul and he shared it with me and later we went and visited the site and ever since has been working with the resident minister North\ West in getting a new 3 classroom structure plus up graded the toilet facility, one for girls and the other for boys.

We’re still on the right path and still need your support. We have plastering and painting of the walls to go, secured windows and doors, and tables and chairs also for over 200 students.
Once again thanks to our donors.

Movement of Faith Primary School, in Port Loko District.

It’s a family affairs, collaboration and teamwork.
If you can provide them with the little resource you have, trust me, God willing they’ll do the best they can to their ability.

We’re almost there and your support is still needed. We’re making sure the building is built with iron rod this time and mod sand mixed with cement.
Instead of one crowded classroom, they’ll be having three larger classrooms, and hopefully when finances allow we will add some more classrooms in the near future.

Again I want to say many thanks to those already donated and to those that will be donating.

Changes will come and the World will be a better place!......

A lot of times, Gratitude usually turns what you have into being just enough!

I’m thankful I have enough around my job (the medical profession) to do my work.

Visiting a clinic in Freetown, seeing what the limitation of the working staff and their environment was painful; But guess what, these doctors, nurses and medical personnel are giving it their all, to make sure these little sick angels get the best medical treatment and attention they deserve.

Even with little resources they have, they continue to give HOPES and keeping their patients alive.

It can only get better!

Giving Hope to the Lives of Kids in Ma- Conteh Village , Port Loko District, Sierra Leone

It was a sad afternoon, visiting a school in Port-Loko, as the sight of innocent children sitting outside under the sun in a quest to acquire education left my eyes on tears.

Weeks ago I posted a video about a school that needs tables and chairs for the kids to sit and write, and part of my trip to Sierra Leone was to see how my organization (Hope For Lives in Sierra Leone) could help with some school furniture, but unfortunately, to our greatest dismay, we met a bigger problem in the community, where in the school building that was supposed to house about 150 kids had collapsed.

The kids being resilient with the eagerness to learn, resulted to them sitting under trees and checking on the benches, due to lack of benches and tables.

Our intention was to go and build tables and chairs for the kids, but the disaster left us with a completely different plan, which was to now focus on the building first, instead of the furnitures.

There is still a long way to go in helping these kids rebuild their school structure, as we donated all what we had to the Residence Minister Haja Abdullai Kamara, what we had with a hand in hand supervision from our team and villagers.

Please your help is needed desperately and urgently to rescue the building.

I know there're people out there that can easily afford this by themselves to bring back HOPE to these kids, but we believe in Collaboration and Teamwork that bring dreams alive.
Targeting $10,000 to $15,000.

You can donate through our website at Hope for Lives in Sierra Leone organization or mail to our P O Box 658, Germantown, MD, 20875.

EVERY DONATION IS NOT TOO SMALL OR TOO BIG.

Your donation is tax exempt to the fullest extents of the law. 🙏🏾🙏🏾🙏🏾🙏🏾🙏🏾🙏🏾

PLEASE DO SOMETHING!!
Education should not be a privilege, but RIGHT. Every child on earth should have the RIGHT TO EDUCATION.

At this village in Sierra Leone besides the circumstances these kids are giving it their all to get some education. They will walk miles and miles away to go to school for some education and when they finally arrived at there classes this is all they get.

Majority of these schools in villages are having difficulties to educate their children. They’re pleading to the government for some support. All some of them need is just a simple table for their kids to learn.
t’s not always about what the government can do or can’t do, it’s all about us making this WORLD a better place for you and for me, and for our future generations.
Please let’s continue to make it a priority around the world for kids to have the RIGHT to EDUCATION.
So whoever or whatever organization you support for kids to be educated please continue to do so. If anyone wants to support and having difficulties with other organization you can reach out to us, 100% of your support goes directly their needs, we’re a 501c3 exempted, and your donations is fully exempt according to the law.
May God continue to bless us all. REMEMBER WE CAN ONLY SAVE ONE CHILD AT A TIME, so please do something.
Thanks. 🙏🏾🙏🏾🙏🏾🙏🏾

Collaboration and Teamwork always makes the Dreamwork!!!!!
Hope for Lives in Sierra Leone and Global Friends sponsors two sundays of the Social work Hour on PalsAfrika online Television.

Hope for lives in Sierra Leone, a charitable organization established in 2011 to aid children in vulnerable communities, and also with its computer lab and library situated at the St. Anthony primary school for the boys that render free teaching and practical computer skills for boys and girls, collaborated with Global Friends, a U.S based organisation that raises awareness on breast cancer, donated to social workers in Sierra Leone in support towards the consistent feeding during these lockdown of the Coronavirus of their beneficiaries along the western urban district.

Social workers in Sierra Leone has been grateful during their sunday’s feeding and lockdown program for the homeless and mentally challenged persons introduced Hand Washing mechanism, where they are provided water and soap regularly to wash their hands regularly plus clothing and food packages. Again we want to say many thanks to Hope for Lives in Sierra Leone for their continuous support to Sierra Leone and especially now their support during these toughest times. Special thanks to PalsAfrika Online Television for covering our stories. www.hopeforsierraleone.org

DON’T GIVE UP!!!!!!!
Right now there are so many sadness around the world, but a little joy will always bring HOPE.
So many things are being cancelled and lockdown, but let's not forget:
Dreams are not cancelled. Compassion is not cancelled.
Kindness is not cancelled.
Love is not cancelled.
A better tomorrow is not cancelled.
Given is not cancelled.

Sadly In Sierra Leone, starting tomorrow, there’ll be another three days of lockdown from the Coronavirus.

So with the support and collaboration, Hope for Lives in Sierra Leone is doing the best we can, supporting 12 villages and over hundreds of people are going to be blessed.

We’re supporting places where there’s no chance of help from the government. Not only supporting these villages from the three days lockdown, but also providing them food for the entire Ramadan season.

For many years now with the collaboration and support from Dr Bailey and his wife Mrs Saffiatu Jalloh-Bailey, they have been generously supporting various villages.

Even with the crisis around the world and every nation having difficulties, there’re still few people in the world with a loving heart and giving spirit.

We also wants to give many thanks to our California friends and families 🙏🏾, Ms. Naomi, Dr. Ajayi, Yodit Bellow, Mr Jalloh, Ms. Conteh, Ms. Charlene, Ms. Jameelah, Ms. Lenese, Mr. Maningat, Dr. Majid, for their generous support, and many thanks to the organizers in Sierra Leone.

But we want to give a special thanks 🙏🏾 and shoutout to Ms. Sento Kamara and her team, especially during this time of the Coronavirus. With her organization skills they’ve risk their lives to bring a little joy to these families, at time this. The social distancing was very hard to do, she said, but they did the best they could.

She and the team in Sierra Leone travel with two minivans to various villages during the day and night distributing bags of rice, onions, Maggi and various other types of foods. Young and old, Women and Men, boys and girls were all blessed. We tried to accommodate every house hold on these various villages.

There was so much joy, dancing and prayers from these families. Man, I’m jealous though for not being there, but at the same time very thankful and very proud for the great work of Ms. Sento and her team. You evil Coronavirus I was supposed to be in Sierra Leone this month.

These are the names of the villages in Sierra Leone that was supported. They’re located In the Northern Province of Sierra Leone.
1). KARANEH
2). GBINTI
3). MASORIE
4). KALANGBA
5). MATOKRO
6). RO-THOK
7). MATHORR
😎. ROSARR
9). ROSENT
10). MAGBOLONTHO
11). ROGBLONTHO
12). ROGBOM

We all know some of us can’t afford much but some can. And for me, I’ll always make the effort to give the last penny I can afford especially when it comes to the human race and poverty. One thing I know, I’ll never want to be buried and gone and leave all my money in the bank while people are dying from starvation and hunger.
More importantly, you don’t have to know these people, JUST GIVE.

Please remember to continue your supports and donations. Whether small or large every donation and amount counts. Every penny goes directly to the people, and some more.
