Develop Africa, Inc.

The mission of Develop Africa is to facilitate and establish meaningful and sustainable development in Africa through capacity building, empowerment and transformational education. Develop Africa was birthed out of the vision that human resource development is the key to improving nation-building capacity in Africa. Our focus is on impacting and changing lives.
Provide Books & School Supplies to Children
Many families in Sierra Leone live far below the poverty line and school is completely out of their reach due to the many costs to send a child to school. This project will raise the funds to ship much needed school books and school supplies to children in Sierra Leone. By providing school books and school supplies to these families it reduces the school related costs making school possible for the children in Sierra Leone.
Solar Lights for Students with No Electricity
Kamawornie is a village in Northern Sierra Leone and is not connected to the electricity grid - with no power supply. At night, for lighting, they have no choice but to use kerosene lanterns and open-flame candles. The smoke from these light sources is hazardous to their health. The flames are also a fire hazard. This project is helping to address this by providing safe, renewable, solar-powered lights to kids and youths.
Help Joe go to School
Joe lives in a mud house with his mom and 5 siblings and walks 20 minutes to get to school each day. Joe's mom works as a farmer to support her family. This project will help Joe with his school related expenses-to include tuition, books, school supplies and uniforms so that he is able to go to school this year.
Help Purchase 300 Chicks for Dream Home Poultry
This project will purchase 300 day-old chicks to launch the poultry house to benefit the Dream Home. This will provide a 3-fold benefit as follows: reliable, sustainable, on-going income towards the running costs of the orphanage, fresh eggs daily - a steady supply of high-quality protein for the orphans and an educational / learning opportunity for the orphans - where they can learn responsibility and management.
Help Aminata Stay in School
Aminata lives with her parents and siblings in a mud house. This project will help Aminata with her school related expenses-to include tuition, books, school supplies and related school expenses so that she is able to go to school this year.
Help Ship School Supplies to Students in Liberia
Funds from this project will help ship much needed school books and school supplies to children in Liberia. The average classroom in Liberia does not have adequate school supplies. Together we can change this. These supplies will boost and support education - providing to the kids the much-needed learning resources. Donated books and school supplies are awaiting shipment in Tennessee and will be delivered in 2-3 months.
Help Set Up Running Water And Showers for Orphans
We take running water for granted. Unfortunately, the daily reality for the kids at the Dream Home is the opposite. They obtain water from a water well. This process is labor-intensive and time consuming. By installing plumbing, a solar-powered water pump and 2 water tanks, the kids will benefit from piped water. This running water supply will enhance cleanliness, providing better health and sanitation for the kids. They will be able to take and enjoy showers!
Help Hawa Go to School
Hawa lives in a one room mud house with her mom and 6 siblings. Hawa's mom sells in the market to try to feed her children. This project will help Hawa with her school related expenses-to include tuition, books, school supplies and uniforms so that she is able to go to school this year.
Provide Kindle eReaders to Boost Reading Skills
There is a shortage of reading books in most homes in Africa. We only have a small number of children's books at the Develop Africa's Dream Home for Ebola Orphans. This means that the kids only have access to a limited number of reading books. We can together change this by providing Amazon Kindle eReaders loaded with hundreds of age-appropriate childrens' eBooks. Access to eReaders will stimulate a love for reading, boost their learning and open up a new world of opportunities.
Scholarships for 3 Sisters to Continue Schooling
These 3 sisters became orphans due to Ebola. Flourence is now in class 3 and would like to be a minister when she grows up. Hannah's in class 5 and wants to be a banker when she grows up. Fatmata is now in class 7 and would like to be doctor. These sisters live in the Dream Home orphanage and this project will help these sisters complete another year of school. It will also help cover the costs of housing, clothes, medical needs and nutritious meals.
