We provide essential support to vulnerable children -- and their caregivers -- in the developing world, with timely and sustainable resources and activities that will protect their health and wellbeing, ensure access to education and provide economic opportunities beyond school, thus providing a way out of extreme and enduring poverty.
In 2015, in the wake of the worst Ebola outbreak in history, a small group of professional global health colleagues who had worked together at various times across Africa sought to develop a new model of post-emergency humanitarian aid that would address the shortcomings of the standard humanitarian response.
Restore Hope: Liberia has, duly accredited by the Government of Liberia’s Dept. of Commerce as a not-for-profit, tax-exempt corporation, now provides support to 600+ disadvantaged/vulnerable women and children in Kolahun (population of approximately 75,000) by supporting schools throughout the District and Kolahun Hospital.
In the last two years, RHL evolved from an exclusive focus on a small group of vulnerable children and women to include a larger portion of community members and households. An additional program component is being added that will improve access to mental health support services for vulnerable women. The organization has grown and will soon finalize its 501(c)(3) status in the U.S. and is an officially registered Liberian NGO.
