2 Very Happy Girls - Thanks to Your Support!

Dear project supporters

It is with joy that we bring you an update on 2 girls that you have helped.  Thanks to your generous support, we have been able to provide full scholarships for these girls - Aminata and Mariama (pictured).  These girls were very happy to learn about the support that you provided.  They are now cheerfully going to school each day.  You have truly helped make a difference and brightened their day. 

Every month, thanks to your support, we continue to forward and give priority to the education of girls in Africa.  It will take years to change mindsets - but we are together helping to renew and reshape mindsets.

We are excited to let you know about a new project that we have started on GlobalGiving.  This project focuses on providing education and psycho-social support to teenage girls that became pregnant during the Ebola crisis

The plight of these pregnant teenage girls is moving as they were taken advantage of while schools were closed.  This new project is available here and we invite you help bring new hope to these girls.

Save the Date: On July 15, GlobalGiving will be holding a special matching campaign and would like to invite you to join our team in inviting others and spreading the word.  For more information, please send an email to Amy - amy@developafrica.org.  Thanks so much for your support.

With gratitude

We made an impact!

Lives we have touched
Lives we have touched

Dear Project Supporters

We are deeply grateful for your support since this project launched. This has enabled us to provide relief support to hundreds of beneficiaries.  This includes solar lights, emergency funds for food, mattresses for kids that were sleeping on the floor, medical assistance, slippers to protect the feet of kids, vitamins, a party for deserving kids etc.

Thanks to your support hundreds of lives have been touched and enriched.  We are so very deeply grateful for your kind assistance.

Your support has provided assistance that will last for years.  For instance, funds received this year have been used to provide a solar light for Alfred.  He will be able to use this light for 2 to 5 years.

Going forward, we have decided to phase out or deactivate this project. This will allow us to focus on other areas of intervention.  Please note that we will continue to provide assistance like solar lights, uniforms, food assistance etc. through our other projects such as our  Educate The Next Generation of Leaders Project.  We welcome your on-going support through this project.

Should you have any questions or suggestion, please feel free to contact us at any time

Best wishes

Alice says Thanks!

Dear Project Supporter,

We are so grateful! YOUR GlobalGiving donation has supported Alice through her chemotherapy treatment. Alice was diagnosed with stage 111 infiltrating Breast Cancer in July 2014. However, due to the Ebola outbreak in Sierra Leone, she stood no chance for early treatment as the health system was literally shut down.

She is a beneficiary from GlobalGiving and has this to say: “Am very grateful for funding received to proceed with my prescribed treatment. As a single mother of three (3), it is difficult to put food on the table, let alone pay my medical bill.”

Alice expresses her thanks to Thinking Pink and GlobalGiving in this video.

Planning is ongoing for a survivors’ conference with the goal to bring the threat of cancer back to the forefront on post-Ebola Sierra Leone. This forum will help breast cancer survivors gain encouragement, hope and reassurance that they ARE NOT ALONE.

Your support is greatly appreciated!

Thank You,

Develop Africa team
