Today July 20th 2018, 10 students at the Yonibana Secondary School received back pack and school supplies from Me Against Poverty a registered 501c3 organization that i started 9 years ago.Our representatives in Sierra Leone coordinated with the school and distributed the supplies to the recipients early this morning.
We wish the students well as they continue their academic pursuit.
As a small organization we strive towards making a difference in the lives of these students, many of whom we will never meet. We help because of what we believe.
We believe that a genuine concern for others followed by action is a recipe for peace and loving communities
We believe that being honest and demonstrating strong moral compass is essential for stronger communities
We believe that it takes strong communities to help students become better and productive citizens
We believe that in a community, every educated person is not rich, but educated people are more likely to find a way out of poverty.
