Hi, my name is Carol Williams, Founder and CEO of the non-profit organization Community Transformation Group (CTG). I have worked in Africa's poorest, underprivileged, and underdeveloped countries for over seven years. Through our organization's missions' efforts, we are helping to build thriving communities.
Currently, we are seeking financial supporters to help the community in Bo Sierra Leone, West Africa build a three-level building that will include a primary school and an empowerment and community outreach center for mentorship, vocational and entrepreneurship training.
The building project started in April 2021, and while significant progress has been made, the current need is to raise $35,000 to finish the three-level building. Will you please help the community leaders and members in Bo Sierra Leone, West Africa? Your financial support of any size is greatly appreciated!
Thank you in advance for Helping Us Help Them!
Carol Ann Williams, Founder/CEO
