COMMIT and ACT

  Empowering Sierra Leonean communities since 2010

Commit and Act is an organization dedicated to empowering vulnerable populations in Sierra Leone. We work with local healthcare workers and other professionals to aid survivors of violence and help prevent violence.

 

We treat survivors of domestic and gender-based assault, people struggling with trauma following Sierra Leone’s 11-year civil war, and community members facing mental health difficulties.

 

Within our safe, accepting shelters and workshops, we offer space both to heal from pain and to build fulfilling lives and families.
