Brief Description of the organization
The Lessofrtunate and Needy Victims Development Foundation-Sierra Leone (LaNVIDEF-SL) is a non-profit, non-governmental organization, but purely a humanitarian and Volunteer Community Based Organization (CBO) that was founded on January 6th, 2002 in Free town Sierra Leone after the brutal and psycho and social period (crisis and conflict) by Timothy G Bockarie, and was setup on January 6th, 2008 by a group of friends who had the same vision. It mission is to eliminate human suffering and human rights abuses in rural and slum communities in Sierra Leone, with opportunities that empower people to live independent lives free from poverty, disease and hunger.
LANVIDEF-SL was founded to alleviate poverty, extreme hunger, suffering, and to stop the spread of deadly diseases, and to promote humanity in and out of Sierra Leone, regardless of colour, ethnic, disability and other issues affecting rural and slum communities in Sierra Leone. The organization was set up as a result of the observation that rural communities in Sierra Leone could greatly benefit from guidance and advice in co-operative community-based initiatives to help ordinary people to increase their income generations, and because there is a large number of people in the local area who are in need of assistance, financial or otherwise, who would benefit from the input of an organization designed to help them to help themselves. All the programmes that LANVIDEF initiate are designed with the aim of promoting long-term benefits for the individuals and groups involved.
