Welcome to the Sierra Leone Poverty Alleviation Charitable Trust (SALPACT)

The Sierra Leone Poverty Alleviation Charitable Trust (SALPACT) is a registered charitable organisation with the United Kingdom Charity Commission Registration Number 1177207.

SALPACT was established on the 15th of August 2017, in response to the deadly mudslide which took place in Freetown on the 13th and 14th of August 2017, killing over 1000 people, with thousands more – including children, now orphaned and homeless .

The aim of SALPACT is to pursue the advancement of education and the prevention or relief of poverty for children in poverty or need, due to their economic and social circumstances  in Sierra Leone by the provision of grants to charities, or other organisations working to prevent or relieve poverty.

With the generous support of hundreds of donors from around the world, we are raising funds to help tackle poverty in Sierra Leone.

SALPACT is based in the UK and has a Board of Trustees who provide governance oversight and ensure accountability, with regard decisions as to  how the funds are spent.

We hope you will find this site useful in understanding what we do, and how you can play a part in helping to alleviate poverty in Sierra Leone.
