Who We Are
"We are the authors of our destinies. a win-win resolve is now necessary; let’s never return to war."
Who we Are
At Lifeline Nehemiah Projects (LNP) we seek to find solutions to the challenges of poverty by equipping individuals, families and communities for sustainable development. We achieve this through education, economic empowerment, contemporary farming methods, supporting children, women and girls, mobilising voluntary blood donors, and producing responsible citizens, who in turn contribute to nation building.
LNP was founded by the late Richard Mandewa Cole in 1992 after he escaped with his family from the rebels in Liberia to Sierra Leone. Moved by the plight of child soldiers, Richard rescued and educated over 2000 children who in the years which have followed have become lawyers, educationalists, clergy, business people, members of parliament and responsible parents.
LNP is now at work in over 6 districts across Sierra Leone delivering a lasting impact by providing family, love, and care to children who cannot live with birth families; supporting children to learn; empowering individuals, families, and communities to become self-reliant, responsible citizens; and always seeking to address the disparities facing minority groups, including women and girls.
This is done together with our partners the Lifeline Network International and others.
