Save The Young Girl Foundation Orphanage is a Community Based Organization (CBO) located in Waterloo, Sierra Leone that was founded in January 2017 by Susan Marie Sesay. The facility serves as a safe haven for young girls who have been abandoned through various unfortunate circumstances in life. It also provides emergency shelter for girl youth at need. The organization currently cares for approximately 31 girls between the ages of 5 and 15 years.
Build a future for the youth of Sierra Leone, with your help we can grow.
Save The Young Girl Foundation Orphanage was a result of one woman’s heart and compassion towards helping the girl youth. One day while visiting RokupaWharf, popularly known as the “slum area”, Susan noticed a group of young girls selling fish at the market. She instantly thought how these girls were being deprived of their education. After some weeks she realized some of the girls were homeless due to the loss of both parents to Ebola and other reasons. They were under the care of relatives but not being cared for properly. None of the kids were enrolled in school.
