Hope for Children At -      Salisa Bana School

Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC), home of nearly 5 million orphans.  A country where the average annual salary is $153. Please help us to educate and care for these children that desperately need our help. 

Our school is open and we are accepting children K-8 and some high school classes are available at night. We will continue accepting any child we find that might be orphaned or abandoned by their parents (limited space). Many of them have never been in one place for very long, and have only known poverty all their short lives. But at Salisa Bana they will have a home, religion, receive medical attention and the love they deserved as children of God. 

Salisa Bana's staff includes our facilities director, 10 teachers, Principle, Vice Principle, doctor, cook, laundry, 3 security guards and 2 nannies as needed.

Our Mission: Salisa Bana School is a 501 (c) (3) non-profit organization dedicated to providing educational opportunities, shelter, clothing, food, clean water and medical care to disadvantaged children and their families. Our goal is to improve their quality of life and to empower them to become contributing members of their families and communities.

Goals and Objectives: 
  • To provide educational assistance to marginalized children in Africa
  • To serve as a link between international sponsors and the sponsored children and families in Africa
  • To mobilize resources (i.e. human, organizational, financial, information, etc.) to support the identified needs of the children and their families
  • To obtain safe, stable, and secure school environment marginalized children and families

Recently launched Giftfluence… a platform that allows charities to raise money whenever followers shop online, and rewards charitable shoppers with discounts and coupon codes is now available.  It’s similar to AmazonSmile, although instead of giving ½ of 1% to charity we work directly with retailers to donate 4-20X that amount.  So far over 1,000 stores are signed up including Macy’s, Nordstrom, Expedia, Bloomingdale’s, Walmart, Petsmart, Groupon & many more.

I know that you are busy, but I would really appreciate you taking a look at this site. Many of your already shop online, and I would love to turn the shopping that you already do into donations for Salisa Bana School.  I’ve included a link to the site below, and I would love it if you could take a look and possibly start buying and at the same time help our school.


Thanks for your consideration.

Blessings always
