Sierra Leone

A handful of our children in Sierra Leone have finished secondary school and are preparing for university. As they continue their educational journey, and as several other students prepare to follow them in the coming years, many will end up at universities in Freetown, Sierra Leone’s capital.

(SL) Banta Campus: Solar Lighting for Children's Homes

Project Country: 
Sierra Leone
Visibility : 
Hidden

The Banta Children’s Village in Sierra Leone currently operates on gas-powered generators for a few hours a night.

Having solar power would be a clean, cost-effective way to provide light for the children in the evenings, allowing them to study or take part in other activities. As funding allows, we hope to install solar panels at the Children’s Village to achieve this.

This project has been funded! Thank you!

With our Banta Farm producing more and more food, and our partners in the United States packaging meals to send to our children, God has blessed us with a bounty of food in Sierra Leone.

By building a place to store this food, you will be helping to provide for the nutritional needs of our children and others in the Banta area.

The Goal: Efficient Transportation
It is essential to have a working vehicle at Children of the Nations’ Banta Ministry Center at all times to ensure the safety of our children, and for basic transportation needs like transporting food supplies from town, picking up Venture Teams, transporting children to exams at other schools, or rushing children to the hospital in emergencies. Our goal is to complete all these tasks in the most efficient way, to free up resources and time that can be invested more directly in the children.

Pig

Pig
$35.00

Farm animals like pigs are highly valuable in African villages.

One sow can produce about 20 piglets a year. Within six months, those babies can grow to weigh up to 200 pounds each!

These pigs can supply necessary protein for many growing children, or they can be sold to generate income for a family.

There are so many ways that pigs can benefit children and their families!

How many pigs will you give today?

Chickens

Chickens
$25.00

Give chickens and help a family jumpstart their own small animal farm! 

Chickens, like other farm animals, are some of the most valuable gifts you can give to a child in Africa or the Caribbean.

Chickens are a staple source of protein in these regions. They require very little food and space to grow. 

Chicken eggs are another excellent source of protein, and they can be eaten or sold. Fertilized eggs hatch into more chicks, making this a self-renewing resource.

Goat

Goat
$78.00
Farm animals like goats are extremely valuable gifts in Africa. In an African village where children lack food and income, a goat can help generate both!
 
Goats flourish in harsh environments. Giving a goat to a family in need provides them with easily digestible milk, and even manure fertilizes crops. 
 
When you give a goat, a child’s family benefits in so many ways!
 
Give a goat (or two, or three!) today.

Solar Flashlight

Flashlight
$10.00

Many children we serve don’t have electricity (or their access to electricity is inconsistent). This makes it difficult to study, work, or move safely in the evening and early morning. Candles and kerosene lamps can be costly and increase the risk of fire damage. Your gift of a solar-powered flashlight will light up a child’s world.
