Educate the Next Generation of Leaders in Freetown

Dec 9, 2008

87 special and unique reasons to be thankful and counting…

Hello friends,

As of Saturday December 6, we have together raised $3145 from 87 special donors – you being one of them. We appreciate each of you - for investing into the future leaders of Sierra Leone and also for helping Develop Africa secure a permanent presence on GlobalGiving. We did it together! Kudos to you all!

Some of you have already received a link to a recent Sierra Leonean newspaper article about our education initiatives in Sierra Leone. The link below – “Develop Africa Boosts Education” – shows how together we are making a difference.

The $3145 that we raised so far is a great start towards the project funding goal of $49,987. This amount will help provide much needed scholarships, books and school supplies for about 20 children. With your help we can do much more and reach our funding goal. So, as we close out the final month of this year and plan towards the upcoming year, can I ask that you help us take this project to the next level? Below under ‘Attachments”, is a link to a PDF file that provides some suggestions on how you can help us take this project to “The Next Level”.

Every action you take, every invitation you extend, every donation you make - all together counts and will help educate the next generation. You are powerful!

Thank you so much for your support! I'll keep you updated on our progress.

Best wishes
