We raise funds in the UK to educate African children in Sean's name.

 

Mission Statement

“While my heart beats, I have to do what I think I can do – and that is to help those that are less fortunate”
(Sean Devereux, 1964 – 1993)

Sean Devereux was assassinated in Somalia in 1993, whilst engaged on a UNICEF food distribution programmme. He had spent his adult life teaching and supporting children, principally in Liberia, and he died continuing to help those in desperate need in civil-war striven Somalia.

His family set up the Sean Devereux Children's Fund (SDCF) to continue to support the education of children in Liberia. We do this through our Sponsorship programmes and fund-raising events.

The Fund provides aid to African children in need, for projects that offer self-sufficiency and are sustainable in the longer term. Through education the Fund strives to give children the opportunity to empower themselves for the future. The Fund is managed by volunteers to ensure that the projects receive the total benefit from all fund-raising.

Sean’s commitment to humanity inspires supporters to continue the work he started and encourages others to be generous.
