The Needy Today
Focus: Community and Education.
The Needy Today came as a result of what happen with the children in Sierra Leone environments. During the past eleven years war children were separated from their families and now orphaned and abandoned in the street.
The Needy Today Sierra Leone is a registered charity agency at the Ministry of Social Welfare, Gender and Children’s Affairs with the aims to address the basic needs of war, economical and social affected children. The Needy Today will sponsor such children and meets their daily basic needs through finding foster parents to responsible for them.
1. CHILD SPONSORSHIP TNT helps to provide socio-economic assistance to affected and needy children in Sierra Leone in extreme hardship and poverty. This can help them from further suffering. The Needy Today desires to meet their daily needs for basic survival and to remove them from the street. TNT will provide beneficiaries in the form of food staples, clothing, medical care and educational expenses for children. The Needy Today long-term goal is to provide house needy children and educate them till they become self reliant. These children will be provided with income generating skills to live a better life in the future.
2. FOSTER CARE TNT - The Needy Today Sierra Leone will work with the Sierra Leone government, Legal offices, and other establishments and agencies for TNT children’s welfare of orphaned infants or children in urgent needs of intensive living care, and permanent placement in a family. The Needy Today Sierra Leone considers fostering as a last resort to assist these infants/children through transitional care whilst planning for a permanent, caring home or orphanage.
