Bridge to a Better Life Foundation

    Our mission is to reduce gender inequalities through economic empowerment and gender advocacy to prevent and protect girls from FGM (female genital mutilation) and child marriage, while providing education, shelter and support for single Moms and kids in marginalized communities.

    OUR STORY

    Since 2013 under the name Hope Foundation of Sierra Leone, Bridge, in conjunction with rural communities has been actively giving and serving in Sierra Leone. This has yielded a reduction in gender inequalities through several approaches and support for single Moms and kids in marginalized communities.

    S.M.I.L.E. HOUSE

    Bridge in collaboration with SMILE House is working to provide a safe haven and support for single parents escaping abusive situations and allow healthy families to work together, to support the needs of the integrated family. The members get to share their individual gifts and strengths in their specific roles.

    GET INVOLVED

    There are many ways to get involved in this transformation process. Our dream has always been to go global. Help us reach our goal of economic empowerment and gender advocacy for girls while providing quality education, shelter and support for single Moms and kids in marginalized communities.

    Join the Team
