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

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 know first hand the difference Khadarlis is making in the lives people in Sierra Leone and in the Providence, Rhose Island area. They are making things happen from nothing due to their dedication to helping the less fortunate among us. Khadarlis is well respected and admired by the communities/towns and villages they serve in Sierra Leone. Khadarlis is helping others help themselves. In the local communities that they serve in the United States they have earned respect and admiration for their work and dedication to Community service. I highly recommend Khadarlis. I have no doubt they are going to be one of the most respected, transparent and dedicated non-profits in their local community and the communities they serve in Sierra Leone, west Africa. Please donate your time, money and prayers for this worthy organization. Thank you.

I started at this organization as a volunteer, then staff member, and now proud Board Member. My commitment to this organization wouldn't have spanned over 5 years and counting if I didn't truly believe in the impact khadarlis is having in communities, particularly in the lives of young women and girls. I've been able to witness firsthand how khadarlis approaches their work through an empowerment framework working directly with children, families, and communities. .
