BRIDGE Programme

Building Resilience, Inclusion Development and Gender Equity; it is designed and structured in a manner that integrates Health, WASH, Disaster Risks Reduction (DRR), Climate Action, Gender Equity and Reproductive Health and Rights for vulnerable people especially young women and men within 62 communities in the 6 operational districts of Bo, Pujehun, Moyamba, Bonthe, Kenema and Kono, respectively.


Community Epidemic and Pandemic Preparedness Programme (CP3), implemented in Kailahun (Kissy Teng) and Kambia (Samu and Tonko Limba chiefdoms).” The overarching goal of the CP3 is “Strengthened epidemic and pandemic preparedness through a whole-of-society, all-hazard approach”, using community-based volunteers.


The Integrated Resilience Programme (IRP): is designed to enhance the resilience of vulnerable communities in Western Urban and Rural districts with special focus on women’s and girls’ empowerment leading to their wellbeing and self-reliance as well as engagement of men and boys to facilitate positive gender norms.

Blood Donation

Blood Donation: Through its 18,000 volunteers across the country, the Society continues to play a pivotal role in promoting safe and sustainable blood donation awareness to citizens through engagement of stakeholders and sensitizing communities about the benefits of giving out blood to those in need of it. They have also served as the longest non-remunerated blood donors nationwide.

Climate Change Action


promotes activities that will contribute to climate change mitigation efforts and gender and protection aspects are considered in all the programme activities. Tree planting will have positive effects on climate change mitigation and the introduction of the energy-saving stoves will as well improve women’s health and reduce the need for firewood collection and use. This project builds on the BRIDGE- programme, it ensures that women and people with impairments are equally represented in the Community Based Disaster Management Committees (CBDMC) and that their interests are taken on board when strengthening or instituting Community-based Early Warning Systems (EWS) in the programme communities.

Disaster Management

Disaster Management: the sole aim of disaster management is to alleviate human suffering. It involves Disaster Risk Reduction encompassing disaster mitigation, early warning, disaster preparedness, disaster response, recovery, and livelihood supports.
