(STOS) is all about bringing a smile, positivity and optimism in the lives of small children who have been deprived of their childhood by losing their parents. It addresses the issues related to orphans and creating opportunities for them to live a happy life, particularly those residing in the Eastern part of Sierra Leone. It carries out awareness campaigns, organizes regional and national seminars and partners with other stakeholders, community members and organizations to combat the problems faced by orphaned children.
All humans are equal before the law and should be treated equally in all respects. Thus, orphans should be treated in the same way as other children as they have been deprived of their childhood due to no fault of their own. This type of economic deprivation leads towards poverty and social disharmony which affects peace, economy and democracy at both national and international level. In this regard, every member of the society needs to come forward, make their contribution and lend a helping hand to improve the lives of orphans and make them productive citizens of the country.
