The Children Integrated Development Services (CIDS) organization which was formerly known as CHILDREN IN CHRIST’S SERVICES (CICS) was established as a result of some young volunteers who lamented the sordid plight of child to family to community poverty, underprivileged and orphan children, high level of illiteracy, ignorance, sicknesses, infant and maternal mortality, violent acts against women and children. The war our country is currently fighting after the rebel civil is on poverty, Child poverty, and high level of illiteracy, hunger, poor health and sanitation.
The eleven years of rebel brutal war tragedy exacerbated an already critical humanitarian situation, whose negative effects still persist even many years after the war has come to an end. As a result of all these we decided to form this humanitarian organization to help tackle these issues. Founded in 2006 in Kambia Makama Village, Tainkatopa Makama Safrokoh (TMS) Chiefdom as a community based organization so as to address the needs of the communities. It was formerly registered in Freetown with the government of Sierra Leone through the Ministry of Social Welfare, Gender and Children’s Affairs in 2008 with registration # 110, and also registered with the Port Loko District Council in 2009 with registration # PLDC/CBO/TMS/002 as CHILDREN IN CHRIST’S SERVICES (CICS). The name of this organization was officially changed in November 2009 from CHILDREN IN CHRIST’S SERVICES (CIDS) to CHILDREN INTEGRATED DEVELOPMENT SERVICES (CIDS).
