About

OUR VISION

Our vision is to restore the confidence of destitute orphans for a brighter future; we pray that every heart be touched to safeguard our future generation

OUR MISSION

The Zac Bah Foundation is a highly effective child welfare charity funding key child rights & child protection projects across Sierra Leone with intentions to work across Africa in the near future. Our mission is to increase awareness to people around the world about the need to safeguard rights and dignities of especially destitute orphans, their caregivers and their communities. We currently seeks to implement and/or fund child rights & child protection projects across Sierra Leone, which contest crimes against destitute orphans, safeguard their dignities and engage local communities in finding long-term, sustainable solutions to restore the confidence of the destitute orphans and other vulnerable children for a brighter future. We also campaign for stronger laws and nationalist policies for orphans and fund investigations to expose the inhuman treatment, including child trafficking.

Through dedication and hard work the founder of Zac Bah Foundation has constructed and equipped a community Health Center in Bo City and established a pure-water (Sachet) factory in Njala, both serving as fundraising enterprises for the work of the foundation. In 2014, the Zac Bah Foundation supported the work of the District Ebola Committee in Moyamba District by providing purified drinking water and cooking condiments (Salt, Fish, Maggi, Pepper) to quarantined homes at the Moyamba Junction
