Our Mission

Giving a nation a helping hand… slums to sustainable living

Hundreds of thousands of people in Freetown, Sierra Leone, live in unimaginable squalor. An EU funded report declared that over 280,000 homes were needed by 2028; few have been built. We own 25 acres of land and are building Destiny Village, near Newton.  We are now building the first 56 homes towards the 344 low-cost homes, primary and secondary schools, a health centre, businesses creating employment, power, water and waste management, vocational training, recreational facilities and more.

We have interviewed over 400 families and continue our sensitisation for moving program in the slums. Selection criteria were developed with our partner the Federation of Urban and Rural Poor (part of Slum Dwellers International).  The first movers are now in residence and when the village is complete, over 2000 people will be living in a new home.

The current Vice President visited our village on 6 June 2018.  He noted how our initiative was in line with government hopes and priorities to address low cost and affordable housing in Sierra Leone.  As we meet other new government leaders, they express how what we are doing not only address national issues but can see the potential to replicate across Africa.

We need your help, sharing this amazing initiative with those who could get involved.  In particular we now need a Director of Education.  You can learn more of our education plans on this site or get in touch with clive.thursfield@homeleone.org.  We need someone to commit to leading in country, training teachers and helping us open the school on 3 September 2019.
