Strategy of KEO Foundation Initiatives

Become a Child Sponsor

The KEO Foundation is partnering with Women of Wonders Sierra Leone (WOW-SL) to support the educational needs of orphans and children survivors of Ebola in Sierra Leone. Initially, this is being funded primarily from donations by The KEO Foundation leadership team. The scope of this pilot program for the 2016/2017 school year is as follows:

  1. Tutoring for 15 kids to help them catch up going into the school year
  2. Boarding school sponsorship for 5 kids

Help sponsor the education of children in need

"When you sponsor a child, two lives are changed: a child's and yours!"
