"...we need to have people that can speak for the poor people, that can speak for others, and people that can bring good leadership. So I thought that if I had my education I can impact a lot of lives; helping them to make better choices in life, helping them to stay away from violence, and helping them to be in a position to make better decisions for themselves.
I need to be an advocate. I need to talk about the things that really matter because in life it is all about others." Joseph, SLIMS Graduate
This is what YOU are helping accomplish in a country that is so often overlooked and forgotten.
This is the power your investment in SLIMS has on a child, a family, a community, a country, and the world.
This is a worthy investment.
This is the impact that YOUR support has.
Students like Joseph are why we have worked hard to provide a quality education to children in Sierra Leone for the last 26 years. His story of losing a parent during the civil war and overcoming extreme poverty and hardship is one that most of our students know firsthand. By receiving an education from SLIMS, Joseph has been able to lift himself out of poverty and is now helping others to do the same. This is why SLIMS exists.
We know that when a child receives an education, it changes every part of their life. ...It changes the world.
Quality education eradicates poverty, injustice, crime, hunger, diseases, and inequality.
Our mission is to provide an education for children in some of the poorest parts of the country of Sierra Leone so that they may grow to lead future generations of fellow Sierra Leoneans.
Visit our website at www.slimsafrica.com to join us in the fight against poverty today and watch Joseph's story, "Finding Opportunity in Sierra Leone" online at www.bigpicturemediaco.com!
Tag a friend below who shares in your desire to see a world where every child has access to education, where no child is left hungry, no preventable illness is spread amongst the most vulnerable, and no disease is left untreated. Together we will eradicate poverty in Sierra Leone. Together we will change the world.

Through this movement we work to spread awareness, combat, and educate about domestic violence and sexual assault. We are thankful for all of the brothers help during our many events last week including the promise wall and clothesline projects.

Testimonial Tuesday from our Grantee Partner, אחותנו achotenu: "Without Achotenu I could not have studied nursing. I can bridge the gap between myself and the other students. Because I came to Israel when I was 10, I always feel like I am missing knowledge - cultural and otherwise - and now is my time to learn it." Achotenu empowers young Ethiopian-Israelis to follow their educational and career aspirations of becoming nurses and thereafter establishing a stable financial future, while serving as role models for their community.
We're too excited for what's launching tomorrow, so here's a little sneak peek 👀 You might even recognize a face or too. Keep your eyes and ears out for a huge upcoming announcement - we hope you'll join us! #StandNVote

"At Local Laundry, you’ll often hear us say that we “Build Community”, and if you’ve been listening to us long enough, you’ve likely heard us venture far enough to say that we want to be one of the best companies in the world at building community. This may seem like quite the lofty goal for an apparel brand based out of Calgary, Alberta, but when you place the community at the core of your company, great things can happen. Now, while this all may sound great, we’re often asked the question - what does Building Community even mean? At Local Laundry, we think about this all the time and put it at the forefront of everything that we do!
To put it simply, building community is about supporting those around you and giving back to ensure that everyone is moving forward on the right path. As a small business, your community is everyone that your business interacts with - your customers, your suppliers, your staff, other small business and the non-profit organizations you support." - @locallaundry

Good morning friends! A quick post to brighten your day with the sweetest of smiles.
This little girl was one of 300(!!!) children who received treatment at our medical mission trip two days ago. In addition to receiving medical attention we had volunteers painting faces in the hopes of bringing smiles. It worked! 😍
Thank you for sending love. ❤️
Coming up on November 27: 📅
harnesses the power of social media to create a global moment dedicated to giving around the world. Will you join us in support of our 80+ rescues here at #EquineAdvocates
Happy Tuesday! ✨
We believe what that sign says—
every day IS a second chance!
Today is a brand new opportunity to love stronger, forgive sooner, & smile easier.
The Cause Coffeehouse (pictured) has gotten ANOTHER makeover!
And as of yesterday, it has successfully had a brand new roof installed! 👏🏽👏🏽👏🏽
It constantly brings us to a place of humble gratitude to have so many individuals partner with us in our goal to make Beulah Land a respite haven for foster families, alleviating some of our burdens & giving extravagantly towards the vision God has put before us.
In 2-3 weeks The Cove will ALSO have a new roof installed, as well as what used to be “Missions Storage/Annex”, and is soon to be The Haven!
Imagining the joy of children & families enjoying these special spaces keeps us moving forward ❤️
