Lift a Village has partnered with Prison Watch-Sierra Leone and will soon develop a formal partnership the Preyian Foundation, both of which are non-profits in Sierra Leone with a shared mission to advocate for inmates and create an impact of dignity restoration among inmates across the country.

In addition to life skills training, mental health focus groups, vocational training, and creating a safe and nurturing “playroom” for children living behind bars with their mothers, we also hope to provide hundreds of women in prison with the things we take for granted like pads, tampons, and other hygiene products. So we are kindly asking each and every one of you to join our efforts by donating funds to purchase organic pads or in-kind TODAY.

The photos below are a glimpse of how we spent Christmas in 2018 with the women and children at the Freetown Female Correctional Center.
