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.
I am a student at Bryant Universtiy. This semseter our management class required us to work with a non profit organization in Rhode Island that also had an international scope. Whne we first meet with Khadarlis we immediatly decided that we wanted to wrok with them. During the first meeting the founders of Khadarlis were very passionate about their work. Everytime we meet with the volunteers and founders of Khadarlis there was always a very frendly and hard working atmosphere. During the semester we became very close to the organization and really wnated to do our best to help them. Khadalis does many great thing for the community that surrounds them but has also done many grea thing in Sierra Leone and even Guatemala.

Khadarlis is a great non-profit to work for. I am a student from Bryant University who is working with Khadarlis for a management service learning project. My team and I have been helping Khadarlis through creating a Pen Pal System with an elementary school in Rhode Island, putting on a Halloween Program for children in the Providence area, getting donations from Staples to create care-packages for children participating in the Ninos del Lago summer camp in Guatemala, and also making a three year strategic plan. It has been an enriching experience working with Khadarlis. It feels great to help such an amazing organization that makes improvements in Sierra Leone and the Providence area. Working for Khadarlis has made me more comfortable talking to managers and contacting various places to try to get donations for this great organization. I was very excited when we created a Pen Pal connection that will last for years to come and will benefit many children. I have loved my experience working with Khadarlis for my service learning project and do not want this experience to end.
I am a sophomore at Bryant University and have been working with Khadarlis for our service learning project. From the start, everyone at Khadarlis was more than welcoming. Everyone was very enthusiastic and truly cared about the work that Khadarlis does. Right away, my service learning team and I were introduced to the Khadarlis community and learned how we could help. Over the past few months, Khadalris has helped us to achieve more than we ever thought we could. We helped organize and carry out a Halloween Program for children. We have set up a Pen Pal connection between an elementary school in Rhode Island and one in Sierra Leone. We have used various sources of social awareness, and have gained donations for care packages to be sent to Sierra Leone. Working with Khadarlis has been an amazing experience and iIhave learned and accomplished more that iIever thought iIwould. Khadarlis is an amazing organization and it has been wonderful working with them.
I am a student at Bryant University working with Khadarlis for a service learning project. Khadarlis not only helps out tremendously in Sierra Leone by providing help with the education, agriculture, and healthcare among other things but also in the Providence area. For our project, we have seen what Khadarlis does and are extremely impressed by how much they are able to accomplish. The outreach center in Providence itself provides a huge impact for those around it by serving as a place people can go for anything they need. I have learned that as long as you have the will to do something, it can be done and that is shown strongly with Khadarlis. We have learned as a group a lot from Khadarlis such as the importance of helping those who are less fortunate. It does not take a lot to make a difference in someones life and Khadarlis makes helping people look easy because of how good they are at it. I would definitely consider Khadarlis as the best non-profit because it is a small organization that is making a huge impact both in Sierra Leone and Providence. It has definitely taught our group a lot about the difference just a few people can make in others lives.
Finding an organization that you can do community service with is a big issue when I was court ordered. Khadarlis made it easy to have access to do my time. They were professional, attentive and good people to work with.
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.
Volunteering is good for the human spirit and soul. khadarlis makes volunteering easy, fun and very exciting. I love the feeling of belonging that khadarlis brings to the table.
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.
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.
Service Learning brought a team of six of Us from Bryant University to Khadarlis. At first we were not sure how the whole system will work, toward to end it was such a wonderful experience that two of us decided to stay on after our project. Great experience and wonderful people.
I am in a wheelchair & can't handle a full-time job outside the home. Khadarlis has been a great place to get my start in grant writing. I started in May, 2011 & have written 3 grants, so far. It is very interesting work & I'm blessed to have a place that let's me learn as I go. While none of my grants have been officially approved yet I look forward to learning from possible denials. Aisha is the best-her passion, enthusiasm & energy are enviable! She is also very supportive & just wrote a grad school recommendation letter for me. The only real down side is phone tag. But that's inevitable, I live in Arizona. Looking forward to several more years at Khadarlis!
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.
I have helped Khadarlis as part of a Service Learning project for a management course and i have been amazed at how much Khadarlis does for the community and Sierra Leone. We have loved doing whatever we can to help Khadarlis and have gotten much out of our project and is very self fulfilling.
I am currently doing a service learning project with khadarlis for my management 200 class from bryant university. I have enjoyed working with them thoughout the project. During the project I have worked on there social media campaign, specifically Facebook, Twitter, and linkedin. I have also contacted businesses around the providence smithfield Rhode island area inorder to establish connections with them.
