About Us

Sisters of Sierra Leone of North TexasFifteen years ago, a group of women with roots and ties to Sierra Leone founded the Sisters of Sierra Leone, North Texas organization with a collective resolve to contribute to the rehabilitative efforts in their post-conflict nation and to give assistance to their community at large.  Our priority is to provide aid and support to women and children who have been victimized through rape, physical abuse, amputations, emotional instability and child soldering.

Our 501 (3) c non-profit status enables us to secure tax deductible financial contributions from philanthropic benefactors; and we work in partnership with other groups with similar visions to empower community leadership and development; provide access to medical care; adoption services for orphans; enhancing literacy from primary to tertiary levels; and provide annual food bank and clothing drives for our beneficiaries.

We are grateful for partnerships and support from the New Mercy Ship; the Africa Program at University of Texas, Arlington; Books for Africa Program; The Kroo Bay Initiative; Faith United Methodist Church; Spring Valley United Methodist Church; Africa Kind Hearts Organization; DFW International Community Alliance; Restore Hope Foundation; Southern Eye Memphis/Serabu Village, Sierra Leone; Daystar Adopt-a-Village; Sierra Leone Volunteer Nurses and IDEA Foundation.

Our ongoing commitment is to build on these achievements, and work in concert with existing and new partners to launch a Mobile Clinic; complete the construction and maintenance of a Medical Clinic; Micro Lending Loan Program; Housing for displaced women and children; Women’s shelters and continued partnership with the Maternity Hospitals. Through sustainable partnerships and commitment, we would work to restore the dignity of every woman and child that remain on the margins of society.
