Puente de la Humanidad (“Humanity Bridge”) NGO
This NGO was founded by volunteers in the Diocesis of Albano Lazio (Province of Rome) to support and help missionary work in a village in Sierra Leone
Makeni Nursery School is located in the outskirts of the town of Makeni and is the only place where pre-school children can gather and socialise, in a country where 42% of the population is under 14 years of age. In the post-Ebola period, it is particularly important for people to return to normal life and share things with others; and also for increased support to families, to help them respond adequately to their children’s educational and health needs. In this context strengthening structures is the first step towards improving and broadening services for children and their families.
The project includes:
Improvements to the equipment and installations of the kitchen and canteen
Improvement and purchase of school furniture
Purchase of educational toys
Development of teaching activities for 8 hours daily
Nutrition and healthcare programme
50 children of both sexes from different ethnic and religious backgrounds, the residents in outlying parts of Makeni, and their families will benefit from support and accompanying.
