ABOUT BRIGHTER HORIZONS

Brighter Horizons is a Danish non-profit organization, with mission to help the most vulnerable members of society devastated by war, disease and poverty. Our focus is on providing relief to vulnerable children, street girls and the disabled in Sierra Leone.

The projects are implemented in Sierra Leone in West Africa, which despite substantial riches in natural resources is one of the poorest countries in the world, partly due to a long civil war, but more recently due to the Ebola epidemic.

The organization was founded in 2017 by Erik Rasmussen and Zora Saskova. Nevertheless, the X-prostitution and Inclusion-For-All projects run since 2012 as they used to be a part of FANT (Football for A New Tomorrow), an NGO that Erik founded and where Zora acted as a project manager.

Brighter Horizons aims to assist vulnerable talented children to get a proper chance in life, to enable young women to leave the sex trade in Freetown and to support them as they start a new life, and to assist amputees and the disabled in Freetown in order to create all-inclusive communities.

OUR OBJECTIVES ARE:

  • To charitably provide basic life necessities such as housing, food, healthcare and education, to the most vulnerable members of the local communities in Freetown
  • Improve women’s status in the Sierra Leone community
  • To work for the disabled people’s status and opportunities
  • To support especially talented children from difficult conditions through Education and information
