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.
Putting our passion to work!
This project aims to prevent female genital mutilation within the communities. Consequently, reducing girls' drop out of school and improving their life's quality and future.
“The work of Commit and Act helped to change the culture of violence in the South of the country”.
