Bethany International House for children is a charity that works with under privileged children in Mango farm Marburey Waterloo.
This project came in to action due to the 1991 rebel war that left many children traumatized and devastated as they watched their houses being burnt. The young and old raped and brutally beaten. Many of the children lost their parents which resulted to some of the children been homeless and immediate orphans. My visit to Sierra Leone resulted in me setting up a charity for the under privileged children.
We want to provide a proof of concept for new developments in agriculture and the supply of electricity and power via solar, water and wind etc. If we provide a testing ground for these developments this allows other countries to review our progress and implement these advances locally.

About the fundraiser
Waterloo, Sierra Leone
I graduated as an engineer and have worked for companies such as Hasrbo and the Walt Disney Company. My Mum has started her charity in Sierra Leone and we plan to build a team that can help us raise money and awareness about this project to finish the school building.
