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.
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.
Internet Opens New World of Learning Opportunities
Over the past 5 months, we have been providing basic computer training to the young ladies at Develop Africa's Creating pathways Centre. However, these ladies have never accessed the internet and are missing out on a whole world of online learning and communication opportunities. This project will change this by covering the cost of internet access for 6 months. They will be able to access online educational resources and take online courses.
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 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.
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.
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
Sponsor Microfinance: Empower Small Businesses
This project empowers individuals in Africa who are interested in developing their small businesses. It helps them break the cycle of poverty and boost economic development through 2 key areas: business management training and financial assistance. This support helps them effectively start and grow their small businesses. Priority is given to youths and women. Small businesses are the life-blood of African economies and this is a great way to bring change and boost economies. 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
