There are 350,000 orphaned children in Sierra Leone. Every 2.2 seconds another child ages out of the system with no family and no place to call home.
There are approximately 350,000 orphaned children in Sierra Leone and since The Raining Season was founded over 50 children have been adopted into forever homes, but over 14,505,000 children age out of the world wide adoption system every year. This was The Raining Season's foundation for a new program, The Roots Project. The Roots Project will focus on finding adoptive families within Sierra Leone, establishing forever families for all children.
That vision for every child to have a family is what is leading Charles and Ally Currie to Sierra Leone to partner with the non-profit The Raining Season, out of Spring Hill, Tennessee. With the help of their local church, City Fellowship Baptist Church of Jackson, Tennessee the Curries will serve in Freetown, SL for The Raining Season, helping partner with them to see orphaned children find families.
