Thank you to everyone who has supported my involvement with HTR so far. FINALLY after 2 years, Hear Their Roar are able to return to Sierra Leone to continue their work and I'm so proud to be a part of the team. Previous donations for The Gambia trip in 2020 are being utilised for this trip! £1500 total needed. £552 previously raised. Personal costs not included are: Vaccinations, Travel insurance and VISA.
HTR works with children and young people from the slums and streets in Africa. These children and young people are going through unimaginable trauma, some are in gangs, or on drugs, many are being sexually exploited and all are experiencing domestic violence. We invest in emotional health and communication skills, restoring identity and renewing hope. We also work with the adults in the communities, be they parents/carers, teachers or social workers focusing on how to parent and care for children and adolescents. Sierra Leone is the 9th poorest country in the world. We have connections with 8 schools. We will be working with AMREF, who are there on a permanent basis, helping to get these young people off the streets and into education. Any donations go directly towards the cost of the project which is entirely voluntary. Please give generously, these young people are so worth our support.
