About the Foundation
A Brighter Tomorrow for Africa is a charitable foundation established under the 501(c)(3) section of the US tax code. Its purpose is to improve the lives of women and children in the West Coast country of Sierra Leone through financial support of small, community-based organizations . These organizations provide food, clothing, medical services, counseling and education to children; raise the potential of Sierra Leone women through education and skills training and combat corruption through information and public education. The foundation's objective is to have an immediate impact on the lives of the women and children supported by these organizations.
Why Sierra Leone?
From 1992 to 2002, Sierra Leone went through one of the bloodiest and most destructive civil wars ever experienced on the African continent. Rebels trained in Liberia and Libya came across the borders and viciously killed, raped,and mutilated tens of thousands of men, women and children. Now, ten years later, the aftermath is still visible everywhere - poverty, disease, broken men, scarred and traumatized women and children, a destroyed economy - a reversal of human development. The needs of this poor country far outweigh the aid which is currently being provided .
