  • Mission:
  • A Brighter Tomorrow for Africa (BTA) is a charitable foundation established under the 501(c)(3) section of the US tax code. Its purpose is to improve the lives of women and children in the West Coast country of Sierra Leone through financial support of small, community-based organizations . These organizations provide food, clothing, medical services, counseling and education to children; raise the potential of Sierra Leone women through education and skills training and combat corruption through information and public education. The foundation’s objective is to have an immediate impact on the lives of the women and children supported by these organizations. BTA was started in 2005.

  • History:
  • recently completed my eighth trip to Sierra Leone. I go there each year to meet with the heads of the programs we’re supporting and to see, firsthand, the people whom we’re helping. It is always a moving experience. We’ve funded six separate programs with four different organizations up until now, May 2010. We often get asked how a young Foundation like ours decides where to start helping. It’s a good question. With so much to be done in Sierra Leone, with so much need everywhere, what should get our attention first? Our answer is simple - let’s start where we can save lives.
