Our first initiative, “Education is Strength,” focuses on providing sustainable solutions to allow underprivileged children gain a solid foundation and the tools needed to advance in their communities through access to a safe education. We have a comprehensive educational approach that is able to identify the root causes of why children are either not attending school at all or are under-performing in the system they are provided with or what exactly leads to the massive drop out of schooling.



Efficiency and Sustainability: We are devoted to making sure every dollar and every moment is spent wisely and work to guarantee the projects we implement can be affordable and sustained by local communities.

Quantifiable Results: We focus our energy and resources in areas where it can have the greatest impact. Projects and programs develop best practices and lessons learned.

Diversity and Collaboration: We work in diverse geographic regions and believes strongly that some solutions may work in certain areas and not in others. No matter where we work, we engages partners on the ground to ensure that projects are properly responding to local needs. We understand very well that it is not our place to impose Western ideals on others. We listen to the communities we work in and encourage local dialogue and suggestions to address the problems the community faces. We always use individuals from the local communities to help plan, propose, and implement the projects and programs we undertake for adequate and a successful output result.



Our work is focused on young Children in which we help empower them by creating a platform for them to connect and build their lives for a sustainable future. We use three tools to achieve our goals:

Education, Advocacy and development.

At CARDO, we conduct advocacy on a variety of levels to encourage decision makers to value, protect and advance the worth and rights of children especially in the remote rural communities of Sierra Leone.


Our direct work with children addresses a wide range of child protection issues, including combating the harmful practices of child labor; unnecessary institutionalization; violence in schools, homes and communities; corporal punishment; child marriage;, among others as all this can be achieved through the enhancement and empowerment of education as when Children are in School prevents them from taking part in most of these bad practices. Child



protection issues not only harm children, but they also undermine progress in other areas, including health, education, and economic livelihoods.

CARDO are seeking international volunteer opportunities in Sierra Leone. We source and place volunteers for work on child development projects aimed at empowering some of the most vulnerable children in the world by giving them the chance to go to school.
