Rating: 4.68 stars   69 reviews

Issues: Disaster Aid, International, Economic Development, Microfinance

Location: 99 Academy Ave Providence RI 02908 USA

Mission: Khadarlis is a non-profit organization dedicated to working with communities, children and families worldwide to alleviate poverty and social inequality. Khadarlis is motivated by the fact that some of our board members have families and ties to the country and the communities we serve. We actively fight the conditions of the poor and disenfranchised as a demonstration of unconditional love for all.
Results: Our work started with Jimmi, Senehun, Kpawama and Bandajuma in the Bargbo Chiefdom in the Bo District of Sierra Leone. We have since expanded our outreach and currently have active projects in Sierra Leone, Guatemala and Rhode Island. Khadarlis’ goal is to reinstitute civil infrastructure. Since 2007, our organization has focused on education, water and sanitation, health care, HIV/AIDS prevention and treatment, agriculture, solar electricity and housing in Sierra Leone. Khadarlis is proud to collaborate with Niños Del Lago in Panajachel, Guatemala to provide educational/school resources to the newly built summer camp. Here, children will enjoy a summer camp experience similar to those found in the U.S., which incorporates a positive educational curriculum and respect for the environment. Khadarlis will match all educational materials sent to Sierra Leone to Niños Del Lago. Locally, the Khadarlis Community Outreach Center serves the greater Providence area. We are partnered with state community action agencies to provide free household goods to low-income and homeless Rhode Islanders moving into homes or apartments. Our organization collaborates with Gifts in Kind-International – also known as Good360 – and receives donated items from stores like Bed, Bath & Beyond for distribution through the program. Qualifying applicants can select up to five items to help them transition into their new residence.
Target demographics: Villages in Sierra Leone, West Africa; low-income children in Guatemala; low-income children and adults in Providence, Rhode Island
Direct beneficiaries per year: 200-400 persons
Geographic areas served: Sierra Leone; Guatemala; Providence, Rhode Island
Programs: Our organization works through strategic partnerships and applies advocacy, catalytic assistance, innovation, participatory and right-based approaches to development work. We work by promoting civic empowerment, self-help and self-sufficiency for economic and sustainable development. Our past projects have included community empowerment through building and sustaining wells, local community centers and schools, as well as supplementing medical supplies to peripheral health units.

I had a 100 hours of community service to complete. I called Khadarlis and was told they will be happy to have me. Went there filled the application and was really amazed at the work they do, not only do they work here in Providenc. but also in Sierra Leone and Guatamala. I love the class room to classroom program. I think it is awesome.

I've volunteered for other non profits before but I can honestly say that Khadralis is the best non profit organization ever I've volunteered for. The staff at Khadarlis are honestly concerned about those they are trying to help which shows regularly through they're actions. They're compassionate and caring to those who may need their help and who may walk through their door. I've seen some of the work that Khadarlis has done over the years to help the less fortunate and those in need of assistance and the impact of the organization is obvious They've provided books to children who need them among other things. The people who run the organization are also very hospitable to volunteers as well. When I first decided to volunteer I was welcomed with open arms and immediately felt like part of the family. Volunteering for Khadarlis I feel like I really am making a difference in people's lives, including my own. When I come in to Khadarlis I'm always greeted with a smile by the staff. Volunteering for Khadalis is one of the best choices I've made in a very long time.

How do you say thank you to a bunch of people that gave you a chance when other organizations will not accept me for community service via courts. They showed me that they care and wanted to see me complete my service. I have since then completed my hours. I show up there every so often when time permits to help out. Cheeers.

Volunteering at khadarlis is challenging and fun at the same time. Kids can be a handful and being there just makes you appreciate the children and the staff who are all volunteers, I feel that these two women that founded the organization need some recognition and medal for all their hard work in our 02908 zip code.

khadarlis is one of those rare organizations that is not yet well known internationally but is surprisingly solid in its mission, objectives, and staff composition. I've known the staff for more than 2 years and have had some humbling experiences during my trips to participate in some programmatic activities. Anyone who is able to interact with the staff or visit the recipients and their families in the impoverished regions in which khadarlis operates will undoubtedly fall in love with this little NGO known askhadarlis.

When I first walked in to khadarlis as a volunteer, little did I know it would be one of the most transformative experiences of my life. Serving people in the rural border regions of Sierra Leone and g survivors with an exceptional hard working staff. I learned so much from the community and the local staff both professionally and as a human being.
