Double Impact

Kadiatu and Shieka are practicing what they have learned from Alfred, the computer trainee Develop Africa sponsored. Alfred is accomplishing his goal to pass on his computer knowledge to other youths after he completed his training. He gave an assignment to Kadiatu and Shieka on Word Processing.

Alfred wants to help other youths be prepared for opportunities made available to them after the Ebola crisis ends and suspended academic activities in Sierra Leone resume.

We first introduced Alfred in our September 10, 2014, project report titled "Meet Alfred - An Aspiring Teacher-In-Training".

Alfred volunteers at the Door of Hope After School Program and he aspires to be a School Principal. Becoming computer literate is one of his dreams. We covered the cost of his training classes in MS Office software applications.

Thank YOU for providing Alfred the opportunity to impact others.

We have come a very long way! Hundreds of children and youth in the community will benefit from the opportunity to train at the computer lab because of YOUR generosity. Their dreams of becoming computer literate are coming true!

YOUR donations make this happen!

Best Wishes,

Develop Africa team

New Basic Computer Training Classes Begin

New Computers Received

Dear Project Supporters,

Thanks to your generous support, we acquired two new computers and added computer training to our vocational curriculum since our last report. Our new basic computer classes will include training in MS Word and Excel to provide our ladies with the needed technology skills to secure permanent employment through our job placement program. We have classroom capacity that will accommodate 10 ladies - 5 are currently enrolled. Our goal is to equip the class with 5 additional computers and hire a second teacher to fill in for the part-time tutor. The additional computers will facilitate the training program and provide more opportunities for our beneficiaries.

This training program will keep our ladies abreast with the modern day technology which has been a challenge for them during their internship graduate programs when assigned for job placement in various companies. There is a great advantage when ladies are computer literate and we hope that we will be able to secure the funds to increase the learning capacity of this program.

Interest in our vocational training has spread in the community since the addition of computer classes. We will have radio publicity for two weeks to encourage more ladies to participate. And, our staff of three are actively involved in the effort to bring more awareness to our vocational training programs and motivate more beneficiaries.

We look forward to a lasting academic development. Once again on behalf of our ladies in Cote d’Ivoire, we want to express our appreciation for your continued support. YOUR generosity made this happen!

Best Regards,

Develop Africa team
