Your Help Has Made a LOT of Difference!

We are delighted to share with you a special appreciation video clip from Joshua - The Director of Door of Hope. Joshua is a key member of our team in Sierra leone.

In the video he says to YOU, GlobalGiving donors - that your help has made a LOT of difference in the lives of the kids.  He goes on to explain that through the support that we have provided (in the form of books, school and teaching supplies, compensation for the After School Program Instructors), has helped the children become successful in school. In the past year all of the children who attended the lessons were successful and were promoted to the next class or form.  

This is worth celebrating and we appreciate you so much for helping to make this possible!  We could not have done this without YOUR support.

We are together truly helping the kids become successful.  We are helping to educate the next generation of leaders.  

Thanks so much for your support that has made a HUGE difference!

Thanks to YOUR Support - School Fees and a New Uniform for Fatmatta

According to the UN, 31 million girls of primary school age are not enrolled in school.  The included UN infographic vividly presents this stark reality and, at the same time, warmly encourages us to invest in the education of girls. 

This is the core of what we are doing together through this unique and special project - focusing on the education of girls. What we are doing is truly amazing - as we ensure that the obstacles to on-going enrollment are removed.  

Fatmatta and her mother (pictured) were facing a dire situation where her mother was not able to cover the cost of school fees and new uniforms. The situation was such that Fatmatta was about to drop out of school.  

Thanks to our timely intervention, Fatmatta's mother was able to pay her fees the next day.  The funds we provided also covered the cost of an additional uniform - to keep her neatly dressed as she goes to school.

Fatmatta and her mother were deeply touched by the support that you provided and they expressed their deep appreciation and gratitude.  

As you may know, March 8th was International Women's day. Each year, on this global day, we celebrate the economic, political and social achievements of women past, present and future. We celebrate women's success and are reminded of inequities that need to be redressed. 

Through this project, you are helping to address the education inequities for womenYour support is furthering the education of girls like Fatmatta and preparing them for a great future.  Thanks to your support she is able to continue her schooling.  

You can see a visual of the impact that we are together making in the included UNICEF infographic.  As the graphic illustrates, the impact of educating girls is far-reaching!  

YOU can help us continue to prepare these budding women by making a donation today.  Your donation of $35 today will provide a pair of uniforms and a set of shoes.  Please help us bring a smile to a girl child today.  Thanks so much for your support!

We are Together Redressing Inequities in Women's Education

We all love to have our computers in peak running condition.  It can be so frustrating when you are not able to use your computer at all or not able to access the internet.

As with all equipment, the computers at the FAWE lab need to be maintained - to ensure they are in peak condition for training / use by the girls.  In these photos, you can see Maada, our technician, performing software and hardware maintenance.   He has done an excellent job in keeping all our equipment functional over the past almost 3 years.

Over the past months, we have replaced power supplies and memory. This first week of March 2014, we shipped out 2 replacement computers for this lab at the FAWE school lab.  

Thanks so much for your kind and gracious support that helped provide the 2 additional computers.  We are so thankful that we are together able to provide this on-going training free to the girls at the FAWE school. 

As you may know, last Saturday (March 8th) was International Women's day. On this global day, we celebrate the economic, political and social achievements of women past, present and future. At this time each year, we celebrate women's success and are reminded of inequities that need to be redressed.
