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.

Distance does not play a significant role when you're passionate about helping others. Khadarlis clearly validates this saying and Aisha, its inspirator, embodies it. The projects contribute to sustainable development initiatives that come from the local communities Khadarlis serves and thus promote the spirit that is already present but needs an extra push to materialize in the concrete projects that you can witness while walking through the communities Khadarlis helps. As managing director of AMAIDI, an international organization supporting local communities worldwide by adding to the capacity of the organizations that serve these communities, I wholeheartedly support Khadarlis' work and hope that we can work together for a long time to come for the benefit of the people that are assisted in their struggle to escape the negative spiral of poverty and all its ugly faces.

I personally believe that if you have the passion for what you do, then the fruits will be amazing, and that is exactly what happens with Khadarlis for Sierra Leone. Khadarlis has been succesfully shared that passion with all of the people that is part of Khadarlis, because of all the wonderful work they do by helping in so many ways, giving to a whole community all the tools and instructional guide they need to be succesful at surviving and thriving! I admire the work and passion of all the people that is hands on day by day giving their life and soul to others, to our brothers and sisters. I gladly put my grain of sand in the Kadarlis shore.

Since I started working with Khadarlis, I have realised that the lives of many has been touched in a more positive way. khadarlis has been very instrumental in reaching the far distance to helping the needy especially children and the aged. By providing drinking water wells for several villages and disitributing used clothing to displaced population within the region such as Bargbo Chiefdom has immensely helped to alleviate some of the unmet needs faced by these people. Khadarlis has also embarked on sensitising the youths and focused a lot on the benefits of education especially for the girl child. There is a saying that 'if you educate a woman, you have educated a nation'

I worked with Khadarlis for a service learning project this year. Working with them was by far one of the most rewarding activities I have experienced. We hope our project will have a long term positive impact on the organization. Their impact in the providence community is clearly seen as well as their impact in impoverished communities around the world. Overall this is an amazing organization that deserves more recognition, I definitely recommend volunteering and contributing to Khadarlis' mission.

We, Team Khadarlis have been working with Khadarlis for 3 months now, and we have learnt so much for the volunteers, the kids, and the whole family atmosphere. They are doing a great job helping the Sierra Leone community and the Providence Community. They are truly one of a kind. Team Khadarlis is a service learning team from Bryant University, and we have helped with Social Media, Raising awareness, and sending resources into Sierra Leone to help the kids and families live better lives.

I have be following the incredible work that this great charity is doing in the US and my home country Sierra Leone
