Dear Project Supporters,

Thanks to your generous support, we acquired two new computers and added computer training to our vocational curriculum since our last report. Our new basic computer classes will include training in MS Word and Excel to provide our ladies with the needed technology skills to secure permanent employment through our job placement program. We have classroom capacity that will accommodate 10 ladies - 5 are currently enrolled. Our goal is to equip the class with 5 additional computers and hire a second teacher to fill in for the part-time tutor. The additional computers will facilitate the training program and provide more opportunities for our beneficiaries.

This training program will keep our ladies abreast with the modern day technology which has been a challenge for them during their internship graduate programs when assigned for job placement in various companies. There is a great advantage when ladies are computer literate and we hope that we will be able to secure the funds to increase the learning capacity of this program.

Interest in our vocational training has spread in the community since the addition of computer classes. We will have radio publicity for two weeks to encourage more ladies to participate. And, our staff of three are actively involved in the effort to bring more awareness to our vocational training programs and motivate more beneficiaries.

We look forward to a lasting academic development. Once again on behalf of our ladies in Cote d’Ivoire, we want to express our appreciation for your continued support. YOUR generosity made this happen!

Best Regards,

Develop Africa team

Thank YOU for your generous support. Because of YOU, our project organized new training sessions in adult literacy, Mathematics, and Tie Dye. Ladies attending classes in Tie Dye were enabled to start a small business that will help develop their economic independence and self-esteem.

Our partners, ‘Women with a Mssion for Development in Cote d’Ivoire’ and New Life Project Inc. provided support to two women small business owners in need of financial help. The assistance they received enabled them to boost their income generating activity and help finance the education of their daughters.

Our ladies are grateful for all the support they have received and the difference it is making in their lives. It has motivated them to pursue their dreams, develop their independence, and support their family and society.

From heartfelt appreciation, we thank you for your continued support.

Thank YOU for your generous support. Because of YOU recent graduates of our project, Empowering Disadvantaged Women Vocational Training, have taken the first step toward starting small businesses.

Our partner, New Life Project Inc. helps empower young women by establishing them in their own business after the completion of the vocational training program. It gives us great joy to notify our sponsors that we opened bank accounts for our ladies to help them establish their own business. This is a stepping stone to accomplishing economic independence which will equally boast their self-esteem.

Our ladies are grateful for all the support they have received and the difference it is making in their lives. Having an account in their name for the first time is quite a big step to success. It has motivated them to pursue their dreams, develop their lives and equally support their family and society.

From heartfelt appreciation, we thank you for the generous support we’ve received.

The Empowering Disadvantaged Women Vocational Training Project is very grateful for the support received from our donors. The Project is presently reaching out to economically disadvantage young women in Azope, a town located south of Ivory Coast. Twenty-five (25) ladies received basic training in Tie & Dye as well as Business Management to assist them with managing their own business after training. Most of these ladies are school drop-outs, who as a result of poverty have not been able to further their education.

Our presence in Azope has really been a blessing to the community especially to parents who have been looking for ways to assist their children acquire education. The training sparked new hope in them and motivated a desire to pursue their dreams.

As a result of their interests to further their education, we have selected fifteen (15) ladies who will receive further training in Tie & Die including creative ideas for home decorations. Starting in June 2014, the training is scheduled for a period of one year, with the goal of establishing them in their own business.

In collaboration with other organizations specialized in health counseling and HIV/AIDS, several health awareness campaigns were organized to educate the community especially young ladies on the danger of unprotected sex with emphasis on abstinence. Most ladies had the opportunity to be tested for HIV/AIDS.

The donations created the opportunity for us to touch their lives and make a difference in this impoverished town. We thank our sponsors for their generous support.
