In 2012 and again in 2013 we traveled to Hill Cut in Freetown, Sierra Leone as the Community Hope Project - an organization founded on a penpal relationship that grew to a relationship with a whole community. With an initial $20,000 grant from us, the community constructed a solar-powered school, built entirely with local resources and maintained by community leaders. Since then Sierra Leone has experienced crisis after crisis, most notably Ebola followed by terrible floods. And yet, the school is not only still standing but has grown to accommodate even more children in response to community demand. We continue to be amazed at how community members, lead by our partner Robert, have taken ownership of the projects that we started together in 2012. The devotion and passion that they put into providing these kids with an education gives us hope for the future, and reminds us that by making the world better for everyone else, we make it better for ourselves.  This year, our amazing Sierra Leonean partner Robert is asking for our help in throwing a Holiday party for the kids. 
Every $5 ($1 = 7,600 Leones)  buys another child food, presents, and a moment of joy. Robert wants to provide for 200 kids. Please consider donating. 
From Robert himself:
We continue to extend our thanks and appreciation to all our friends and family who have been supporting us.
The holidays are here again, we appealing to our friends and family to help us celebrate CHRISTMAS PARTY for the children, it's only celebrated once every year in December.
This year we have over 200 kids for the Christmas party.
We have a budget of $1,000. 
Items needed:
1. Drinks
2. Food
3. Musical set
4. Christmas gifts
5. Cake
I will be very happy if you can be a part of this event and make the kids happy.
