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. Sweet Mother, Inc. has continued to award scholarships to the FAWE schools in Waterloo, Sierra Leone, to give financial support for educating Ebola orphans in Grafton, Sierra Leone, and funds to the St. Martin De Porres Academy, a middle school in New Haven, CT. This year's fund raising efforts will go towards the university fees of six girls from the FAWE school in Waterloo, Freetown, Sierra Leone, West Africa. These girls have struggled under very difficult conditions to make their way to University. We are extremely proud of them.
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, Freetown, Sierra Leone. Many of these girls were kidnapped, brutalized, and raped, during a 10-year war in Sierra Leone. FAWE School has been a refuge for them as they have lost everything. This year’s proceeds will also support our domestic and international projects.
The 2023 AWARDS AND FUNDRAISING EVENT will be held on Saturday, September 30th, at Waters Edge Giovanni Restaurant, 2748 Boston Post Rd, Darien, CT 06820. We encourage your attendance and participation at this event. Tickets are sold online ONLY; a limited amount will be sold at the door.
