About Dynasty House
Building equitable & free education for Sierra Leone
OUR FOCUS for 2021 - Raise $20,000 and build the school!
The Dynasty House's goal is to improve the lives of the people of Motema Village and its surrounding villages through providing and supporting an equitable free education. Motema is a small village in the eastern province of Sierra Leone, a country on the west coast of Africa which suffered ravages of ten years of rebel war.
Dominic's father, Kaimba, was an extraordinary man. You may have already read his story here. Having sacrificed everything, with grace, for his children, Dominic has a dream to build Motema Village's very own school, and to honor his father by naming it after him.
Status of this Dream
Last year we raised three times more at our annual fundraiser than any previous year. We are a little more than halfway toward the original estimate of $50,000 for this school.
Already, 64 acres of land has been donated to the cause by the paramount chief of Nimikor Chiefdom, the local authorities and the chiefs of Motema! An architect who is a past student of Dominic at Lake Oswego High School, is donating their work designing the four-classroom school building.
We expect that for the foreseeable future, our fundraising efforts will be directed toward raising funds :
1) to cover the costs of constructing the school,
2) to help subsidize school supplies for children,
3) to sustain the costs of maintenance & caregiving of the property, and
4) paying the salary of some of the teachers (b/c the government doesn't fund teacher salaries until a new school has proven its sustainability for three years.
