Remittance Projects by Alphabet
Agricultural Youth Training Centre
The Diaspora organization in the UK wishes to improve the welfare of war-affected children in Sierra Leone. SLWT partners with existing credible Sierra Leonean organisations, which already have logistics and administrative machinery in place. SLWT can channel its funds directly to its community-led projects, and provide their financial and technical support. The initial purpose of the Centre was to provide a training school for ex-child soldiers. The Centre reaches out to disadvantaged youth and offering them the opportunity to gain valuable farming and livestock rearing skills.
The non-profit organization, Al Sarwar Trust, has constructed a hospital in a remote area in Pakistan to supply for much needed health care in the community, especially for women and children. To strengthen the utilization of the hospital, the project funded complementary infrastructural projects, such as roads to the hospital for easy access, a non-profit department store, and a post office inside the hospital premises to take into account the far-off location of the community hospital.
