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.

Solar Lights Provide Safe Studying for 100 Kids
 
Tens of thousands of kids and youths living in Sierra Leone study at night using kerosene lanterns and open-flame candles. Many of these homes are off-the-grid - with no electricity. The smoke from these light sources is unsafe and hazardous to their health. The flames are also a fire hazard - that have resulted in unfortunate loss of life and property. Develop Africa is helping to address this by providing safe, renewable, solar-powered lights to kids and youths.
Help Send 10 Girls Back to School in Sierra Leone
 
It is an ongoing challenge for girls in Sierra Leone to stay in school due to the costs of uniforms, school supplies, books and school-related charges. Many families are unable to cover these costs. Families with limited funds often focus first on sending their boys to school. As a result, hundreds of girls tragically drop out of school. This project will help to change this by removing limiting barriers through scholarships for 10 girls. Funds will cover their school-related expenses.
A Bus To Take Orphans to School
 
The Dream Home children (Ebola orphans - 22 total) urgently need a bus to take them to school, field trips and any other necessary travel for their ongoing needs. Currently we have to rent a bus when we take the kids as a group anywhere. On a regular basis, when going anywhere, we have to break up into inconvenient and hard-to-manage small groups - using public transportation. This project will change this and make travel easier by providing a bus for the Dream Home children.
Help Dorrette Get Her Education
 
Rural areas in Cameroon do not have adequate schools, infrastructure and teachers to educate its underprivileged children who come from poor families or are orphaned. Rural parents and guardians have limited funds to support their families and their children's education. Consequently, they put their children to work in farms to meet financial needs instead of sending them to school. This project will help ensure that Dorrette continues her schooling by providing her with a full scholarship.
Help 40 Students Purchase Uniforms for School
 
The new school year causes excitement about seeing friends and maybe a little bit of nerves with new classes and new teachers. What it should not cause is concern about whether or not the student has a uniform to wear to school. Many families cannot afford the cost of uniforms, tuition and school supplies and as a result many children in Sierra Leone are unable to complete their core education. This project will provide 40 students with two school uniforms and a pair of shoes.
Psycho-social & Guidance Counselling for 30 Girls
 
The education of many girls in Sierra Leone is threatened by early marriage, teenage pregnancy, sexual abuse and exploitation, domestic workload, etc. As a result of one or more of these factors, many girls drop out of school permanently. This project will address this by providing Psycho-social & Guidance Counselling for 30 Girls. The intervention is significant as it will empower the girls, providing them with knowledge and essential life skills that they need to succeed as women.
Educate a Girl, Educate a Nation - Sierra Leone
 
This project supports girls in Sierra Leone who are at risk of dropping out of school by providing scholarships and books / school supplies. The project also provides vocational training and business development opportunities. Traditionally, girls have been offered less educational opportunities than boys. Where family funds are limited, preference has been given to boys. This project is helping to level the playing field by promoting and supporting the education of girls. project reportread updates from the field

Empower Youths Through Computer Skills Training
 
Imagine not knowing how to use a computer! Many youths simply do not know how to use a computer and are 100% computer illiterate. This project changes this by providing basic computer training to children and youths in Sierra Leone. Proficiency in computers is a requirement for success in today's technology-driven, business environment. We are working to ensure that they receive this training and are fully equipped for success. project reportread updates from the field
Provide a mosquito net, save a life from Malaria
 
Join us in providing insecticide-treated mosquito nets to protect Sierra Leoneans, especially young children, from mosquito bites. Malaria is caused by parasites that are transmitted through the bites of infected mosquitoes Long-lasting insecticidal nets are a proven and effective way of reducing exposure to mosquitoes at night-time, when people are at greatest risk. project reportread updates from the field
