The Gateway to Sustainability

The Watoto: The Children


November 13, 2017 marked World Orphan Day celebrating children and adults across the world who are orphaned for one reason or the other.   There are over 100,000 orphans in Liberia and many of them have been abandoned. 

 The deadly Ebola virus left over 20,000 orphans in the three most effected countries of Liberia, Sierra Leone and Guinea. "Liberia alone accounts for 5,000 of that number.

How do we help?

Teaching the children  basic survival  skills and  providing  them with  the tools for an education are paramount.  

We are developing  a curriculum for the young girls of Monrovia.  The modules consist of History, Survival, Community, and  Spirituality.  After completion  of basic life  training, the young  girls then receive technical training in the areas  of agriculture,  sewing, and cooking.

Successful completion of Basic  and  Technical training makes them eligible for a  micro loan  in small business.

Our motto:

ReClaim, ReEducate, and  ReBuild
