EMERGENCY

 We are raising money to offset losses after the catastrophic flooding that began on August 14. In the photographs below, you can see some of the damages we suffered. During the flood, we lost our generator, food, soap, clothing, bedding, construction materials, and office supplies. Our losses add up to about $7000 USD. By donating today, you’ll be helping to ward off disease & trauma among the girls staying with us at the commit & act shelter. Please help us. We’ll keep you posted on our progress. We look forward to hearing from you. Thank you!!

EVERY MOMENT COUNTS

Violence against girls in Sierra Leone is prevalent. commit and act aim to reduce it.

Since August 2015 we have provided a secure place for girls who have experienced violence. At our ‘girl’s shelter’ they receive competent medical and psychotherapeutic support, clothing and food. It is a safe, loving community where they can live life less restricted and work through their experiences with the support of professionals.

The girls often tell us how carefree and happy they feel in this caring environment.

commit and act also works closely with the police to get the perpetrators arrested. In Sierra Leone only about 1% of perpetrators who committed rape are send to court. In our center the rate is 90%.

We look to find a permanent, secure place with parents or relatives for the girls after their stay in our shelter. We provide a small amount of money for education and our social workers visit them regularly.
