Raincoats Keep Kids Dry as They Walk to Nearby School

Freetown, Sierra Leone experiences very heavy rainfall, between 118 to 169 inches a year. In Freetown, Sierra Leone, because of the torrential rain downpours and volume of rain annually, thousands of kids who do not have rain costs, miss several days to weeks of school each year. As they walk to school under the rain, they become dripping wet.

We are addressing this setback to their education by providing rain coats. In the photos, the kids at the Dream Home are happily wearing their new coats.  With raincoats, the kids can stay dry and consistently attend school.

How You Can Help

Raising and taking care of kids, as you realize, is not s simple task.  The proverb says "It takes a village to raise a child".  In other words, it takes much more than 5 or 10 people to raise these kids.  It takes a village.  That includes everyone.  That includes YOU.  Individual, families, organizations, companies etc.  See Sponsors and Partners.
