Esther Enjoys School Thanks to Your Support & GivingTuesday

Esther - happy beneficiary
Esther - happy beneficiary

We are delighted once again to bring you another interest story of Esther, a beneficiary who has been positively affected by YOUR donations.

Esther comes from a family of many siblings. She has six sisters and three brothers.  Her father is alive but sadly, because of hardship, he has taken to drinking - and does not care about or support his children. Her illiterate mother is the breadwinner and her proceeds from her cookery enterprise are too small to take care of all of the children.

Esther enjoys school and her dream is to become a Nurse in the future. Without your timely support, Esther would not have been able to continue her education towards attaining her dream. Esther’s mother has additionally been given grants from Develop Africa to build up and expand her enterprise.

Thank YOU so much for supporting Esther.  Her life has been changed and she is on her way to becoming a Nurse.   Thanks You FOR helpING to make the dream of on-going education come true.

Without your support, this would not have happened. 


If you would like to learn more about Esther, connect with her on a long term basis and further support her dream - we would love to hear from you. She is full or purpose and potential - and truly deserves our support.

A Welcome and Immediate Relief!

Emmanuel

As previously reported, an unfortunate storm disaster took place in Freetown in May this year.  This storm affected many homes in the Wellington municipality.  Many trees were uprooted and roof tops of houses were blown away or raised. Over one hundred and fifty houses were affected.  More than 30 children attending Door of Hope After-School Lessons were affected.  

Thanks to your support, we were able to provide financial assistance to the families of 19 children.  The photos in this report show some of the children in our program that benefitted from the funds we provided.

The storm disaster caused some families to move to a different house / location.  Money distributed was
used to fix the roofs and other part of the buildings that were affected. For some families money provided was used to secure new rental houses.  Some funds also went toward clean-up efforts – clearing debris, fallen trees etc.

The support YOU helped to provide was a welcome and immediate relief – helping to restore normalcy and relief to several families.  THANK YOU for your support that enabled us to provide this vital aid in time of need.  Many of them would have suffered a serious setback without YOUR support!  

Your support brought a ray of hope and encouragement to the families. They were delighted to receive the crucial assistance and asked us to convey their deep gratitude to YOU.  Thanks so much for your on-going support!
