There are many children in Sierra Leone who, through many factors, have been orphaned, abandoned, or separated from their families. The past protracted civil war further disfranchised many people and robbed children of their homes and family resources. Many children lack proper food, clothing, shelter and fees for education. For these children, financial assistance may be beneficial in order to ensure that the child can be educated and grow to become a responsible and self-sufficient adult.
The primary goal of the Child Sponsorship Programme is to help provide economic assistance to children who have been orphaned, abandoned or separated from their families and are at high social risks due to extreme hardship, war, and poverty. The purpose of the assistance is to prevent the child from further abandonment and suffering or living on the streets for basic survival. The monthly assistance provided would be in the form of food staples, clothing, medical care and educational expenses for children identified as being at risk. An effort would be made to identify street children with families living in the locality that can be reunited with their families through assistance.
The Needy Today long-term goal is to provide education and opportunities to help these identified children eventually establish their own means of self- support in adulthood. This will help to foster positive self-esteem for the children by encouraging self-sufficiency. The Child Sponsorship Programme will be designed to provide foster families, educational fees, and provide monthly assistance for poverty stricken children in the programme, as it is the desire of The Needy Today Sierra Leone to provide avenues for long-term self-support.
