Christiana says thanks to Give For Youth donors

Dear friends and supporters-

Thanks so much for your support provided towards the education of Christiana.  We are delighted to report back to you with a video message from Christiana herself where she expresses her love and appreciation for your generosity. 

Feel the Joy - Watch the thank you video from Christiana

In the video, with joy, Christiana says: "I really appreciate all your substantial assistance towards my educational pursuit.  I am really grateful. I don’t know what to say at this point in time.  I am so much filled with joy inside of me."  Clearly she is overwhelmed by the goodness of the support received.  Your support meant a lot to her!

She concludes by extending a blessing to you saying "May God bless all your families. Grant you all your heart's desires. Thanks very much! You make me feel (laugh)... so good. Thank you.  I love you! May God bless you!" 

Just watching her video made me feel fulfilled.  I hope it makes you feel fulfilled too - that together we brought joy to Christiana.  This is true significance and making the world a better, happier place!  Thanks to your support, she is doing great in school and making steady progress.

We invite you to join us in making many more lives happy by making a special donation or signing up for recurring donations today. Our on-going educational support helps ensure that youths (and girls in particular) stay in and complete their education.  Thanks so much for your support!

Thanks to Treated Bednets Provided, Beneficiaries are Free from Malaria

Dear friends and supporters

It's a pleasure once again to share a project update - this time in the form of a video.  It certainly helps to see and also hear about the impact we are making together.  Sometimes, we may be disengaged or not fully grasp the impact of our intervention - providing nets.  The video helped me realize again how essential nets are to life and health in Sierra Leone. 

In the video, Joshua conveys gratitude on behalf of the community (in Wellington, Freetown, Sierra Leone) and Door of Hope for the provision of insecticide-treated bed nets.   He explains that as a result of the provision of hundreds of nets, the children, women and men are no longer under threat from malaria. Thanks to your generosity and that of Develop Africa donors, many lives are now malaria-free.

Watch the video

The linked WHO report confirms that "Mosquito nets have been key to bringing down the death toll from the disease".  Global targets for combating the disease are under threat as the rate of increase in funding is leveling off.  Given this decline in global support, it's all the more important that we increase our efforts to combat this disease. Let's continue to ensure that many more families are able to live in good health - free from malaria.  The nets we provide together will help them live longer by making sure that they are malaria-free.  With these nets the beneficiaries can focus their energies and resources on other important issues. 

We welcome your on-going support that enables the provision of many more nets. Through your special large gift today or by signing up for a recurring donation, we will together do so much more.  Thanks for helping to maintain funding for the provision of nets - setting people free from the threat of Malaria!

Helping to Raise a Future Leader

Dear friends and supporters:

It's a joy to once again share a project update on how we are together impacting the lives of girls and helping to further their education.  We are providing a vital lifeline - strengthening precious lives that would otherwise drop out of school - with potential and greatness unrealized.  What we are doing is simple, but so very profound!  This warms my heart and I hope it warms your heart too!

This report includes the story of Agnes. This following brief on Agnes typifies that of many of the girls that we are together helping.   These girls are gems, future leaders, with great potential and purpose.  However, they are faced with challenges that are beyond the ability of their families - living below the poverty line and at risk.

Agnes is an orphan who hails from a very poor home. Agnes’ parents died when Agnes was a baby. She has been living with her grandparents who are old, poor and unable to generate income. They used to live in a slum by the sea. Recently a flood washed away all their possession and her uncle died in the process. A few months later Agnes lost her blind grandfather due to the shock from the flood.  Agnes and her grandmother are presently displaced and are staying with a family friend. Agnes loves school and would like to be a lawyer. 

Though her family socio-economic situation is quite a challenge, yet Agnes is guaranteed continued education through your on-going support. Thank you for preventing Agnes from dropping out of school.  Your timely support has indeed given Agnes a hope and a future.  Through your support Agnes and many more girls are continuing their education.  Thanks so very much.

We welcome your on-going support that enables us to reach and impact the lives of many more girls. Through your special large gift today or by signing up for a recurring donation, we wll together do so much more.  Thanks for your support!
