Help Sierra Leone girls & women in need

The Civil War in Sierra Leon lasted 11 years from 1991–2002, It caused mass devastation of the info structure within the country, mass rapes of girls and women, amputation, and many other atrocities.


20 years on and the outbreak of Covid has left many deep scars, especially with women who are still continually being sexually assaulted, raped, abused, victims of domestic violence, and gender inequality, as well as fgm.

People, especially women needed to find a means of support.
Musa Konneh CEO started up The MEANS foundation, Movement for Education and Advocacy Network Salone, and is a dedicated human rights, women, and girl's rights advocate.




MEANS-SL is a change agent that's aimed at empowering women and girl's, with a special focus on young mothers to rise above poverty and stand on their own two feet, through the provision of skills training and formal education support. They help fund projects for women and girls living in poverty, many of whom are survivors of domestic and sexual violence. MEANS gives, women and girls a voice and platform allowing them a way out and into employment.


One example was a pregnant woman who was driven from home by her parents because there was no man to take responsibility for the child. She was treated as an outcast and seen as a shame by her family. This woman and many others were selected during MEANS' community outreach program and were supported, with family tracing and reunification, to learn tailoring presently she can sew and has been reunited with her family, helping both her and her child. Out of the skills learned she and other women are now earning an income that they use to take care of themselves and their children.



Your funds will be used to support young mothers, women and girls to return to education or meaningful skills training that will help them generate income so they can be able to look after themselves and their children, so their children will not become street children, succumb to prostitution and hunger as well as the sickness that come with extreme poverty.

It's also being used to do family tracing and reunification which is much needed there in order for women and pregnant teens to survive.

Royal Neter in UK has teamed up with MEANS in order to help them raise much needed funds to support their continued essential works with the women and girls of Sierra Leone. Women and girls education & training can help to rebuild the country's infrastucture.
