The creation of PowerChild
PowerChild is an organization that is just coming into fruition. From day one my partner and I have shared a vision of generating a movement that would impact the world in a positive way thus leading to the creation of PowerChild.
The mission of PowerChild is to connect a network of people together who share a vision of changing the lives of children in need and who want to share in our journey as we travel to countries in Africa and deliver donated goods, services and financial aid to schools and communities that need our support.
We have already made an impact in Cameroon and Sierra Leone and are eager to continue our journey to ensure that no child is left behind.
In the gallery below you will see images from our most recent trip to Sierra Leone; we were honored to be able to spend time with 3 separate schools and supplied over 300 children with supplies such as notebooks, pens/pencils/crayons, hygiene packs, stuffed animals/toys, clothing and food.
One thing that we learned on this journey is that it really takes minimal financial aid to provide materials and tuition to the kids who need it the most with yearly tuition costing only $60/year which covers a students uniform, classroom supplies, food & examination costs.
What makes PowerChild a little different than most organizations is that we are fully involved in the process from collecting donations to delivering them to the areas that require it the most. We get a first hand opportunity on the ground in these areas to go and do our research into which schools and communities are most at need - this also gives us the opportunity to hone in on what items are going to be most beneficial so that you, the donor, know exactly what you are donating to and get to be a part of the experience by seeing the journey unfold online as your donations reach the hands of children around the world.
Stay tuned for future blog posts where I will give you an in-depth look to our journey's thus far and information on how you can become a part of the PowerChild movement.
