Nonprofit Overview

Causes: Disaster Aid, Economic Development, International, International Development, Microfinance, Rural Economic Development

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.

Hello khadarlis, thank you for inviting me to write a review about your work. Over the last five years or so khadarlis asked me to be a mentor to them when they first started. Aisha and Darlis are the driving forces behind the great work that they do. I took my job seriously and help them till I got ill two years ago and could not really work. Great organization and striving to succeed. Good luck Khadarlis.

This is a wonderful organization that does work in rural Sierra Leone. It's been several years since the devatating civil war and though there has been progress, there is still a lot to be done. Khardalis as an organization has catered to the many needs of these rural communities. There work has ranged from providing clean water in areas that once had none, to empowering women to be equal partners in their communities, to helping to build schools. These are just some of the things Khardalis has done to further progress in an area that needs it desperately. We need more organizations like Khardalis around because the world can use it. Thanks for what you've done, what you are doing, and for all you will do in the future. Why do i appreciate the work that Khardalis has done? Because i have been to some of these areas and seen the needs of these people. It's very needed and they are providing help. Humanity benefits when organizations do the kind of work they do. I know how difficult the work is because i am a member of another Non-profit organization(Kushe Soccer). Continue spreading the love and helping people. They need you, we look up to you, and the world can use more organizations like Khardalis.

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.
