Sweet Mother is a 501(C)3 charity established to give underprivileged children both locally and globally a second chance through education. We believe that education helps the most vulnerable people transform their lives.
Sweet Mother has raised funds and awareness of its educational objectives through an annual dinner dance event, The Sweet Mother Awards, which celebrates the outstanding accomplishments and strength of ordinary women who have successfully balanced motherhood, careers, and community service. This platform has created a network of individuals motivated to educate the underprivileged and provided for the exchange of ideas and experiences. In 2017, Sweet Mother, Inc. was able to provide scholarships to the FAWE schools in Waterloo, Sierra Leone, financial support for educating Ebola orphans in Grafton, Sierra Leone, and funds to the St. Martin De Pors Academy, a middle school in New Haven, CT.
In recent years, Sweet Mother has built classrooms and provided annual scholarships at the FAWE (Forum of African Women Educationalists) Secondary School for Girls in Waterloo Village, Sierra Leone. Many of these girls were kidnapped, brutalized, and raped, during a 10-year war in Sierra Leone. This FAWE School has been a refuge for these girls who have lost everything. Many more children have been orphaned by the Ebola crisis in this part of West Africa and FAWE Sierra Leone has opened another facility to opportune education for these Ebola orphans. This year’s proceeds will also support our domestic and international projects.
The 2021 AWARDS EVENT will be held on Saturday, September 25th, at the Stamford Marriott in Stamford, CT. We encourage your attendance and participation at this event. Tickets may be purchased here online. If you know one of these extraordinary women, please visit our website and nominate her for one of our awards at https://www.sweetmotherawards.org/.
Cocktail hour starts at 6:00 pm. The event starts at 7:00 pm.
