YOOW e.V. was active in Sierra Leone for ten years.

From 2004 - 2014 we collected over 500 sewing machines, refurbished them and sent them to Sierra Leone. Several container loads of bicycles, computers, hospital beds and medical equipment. Also an ambulance, technically overhauled and functionally upgraded by Berlin trainees, went to Mattru Jong. Several containers were equipped and shipped as complete metalworking workshops to be put into operation on site without further ado.

In cooperation with "Engineers without Borders" a solar technology plant was built in Kamakwie for the electrification of the Sella Vocational (training) centre.

Fresh drinking water for the people of Sierra-Leone

Fresh drinking water for the people of Sierra-Leone

We have built wells for the HOME OF HOPE, a children's home in Lungi and for the villages of Makombeh, Gbanti, Farama and Mabayla. These villages are looked after by our project partner MADAM - Mankind's Activities for Development Accreditation Movement - for whom we also built a birth house. All funds for this project came from private donors, whom we thank very much!

Education is a human right!

Education is a human right!

In the slums of Freetown - the so-called "Gulley Areas" - the children have to work. They are intelligent children, from families that live from hand to mouth. We have enabled many children to go to school by providing them with school uniforms and learning materials.

Children who had previously had no opportunities have thus received a basic education.
