Khadarlis
December 2, 2012

Khadarlis for Sierra Leone is a Non Profit seeking to better the lives of individuals in the surrounding community and most importantly, its global community. They provide excellent resources for the local community to get work done and seek NEW employment opportunities with their new computer resource center. Internationally, they work tirelessly throughout Sierra Leone, Africa, providing food, clothing, toys, shelter, education, and clean renewable energy sources. Since the Co-founder is from Sierra Leone they demonstrate a "hands on" approach to their cause so you know every penny fun-raised goes to helping support theses efforts. What is unique about khadarlis is as volunteer for Khadarlis, you are completely free to work on any fundraising project you desire for any country you would like to help. You are given the tools, resources and knowledge to help you along the way. By having this approach, you are exposed to a number of different areas, people and and knowledge thereby gaining a hands on or "real world" experience that is priceless and attractive to any employer that you want to work for in the future. As a volunteer, I was able learn new fundraising techniques, understand how to manage a team, and build working relationships with people throughout Rhode Island. I have built a strong relationship with its founders and co founders as well and I can honestly say that they are the most dedicated and passionate people I have ever met in my life.

Khadarlis
June 28, 2012

As a student of Bryant University, volunteering at any organization for just 10 minutes would have been just a thing to put on a resume and nothing more. That is until I came across Khadarlis For Sierra Leone. Volunteering for Khadarlis for Sierra Leone has really been an eye opening, emotional journey for me spiritually and emotionally. What stood out so much so much was Khadarlis' culture. It deeply instills reciprocity, dedication, and perseverance not only to it's volunteers but it's surrounding community as well. Through volunteering for Khadarlis, I was able to learn multiple skills sets, meet new connections, and at the same time, make a difference in the lives of those less fortunate. I can truly say that the 2 and half months that I volunteered for Khadarlis were one of the best times I have ever had.
