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 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.
Help Bendu Stay in School
Bendu lives in a mud house with her parents and 9 siblings. Bendu's mom is a farmer and her dad is a daily hire. This project will help Bendu with her school related expenses-to include tuition, books, school supplies and uniforms so that she is able to stay in school this year.
Replace Outdated Computers For Girls Training
The Dell computers at the FAWE school have been operational since 2011. At that point they were purchased used. Over the past years, we have had to replace computer memory modules, motherboards, power supplies and monitors. It's now time to purchase a new set of energy-efficient computers. The new computers will be more reliable and loaded with current office productivity software. This new technology and programs will boost the learning of the girls.
Provide Healthy Meals for Orphans - Sierra Leone
One of our ongoing challenges at the Dream Home for Ebola orphans is providing healthy meals for the 22 Ebola orphans. The proverb says "It takes a village to raise a child". We invite you to join our "village of care givers". Your support will help cover the costs of nutritious meals for the Dream Home children for four months. This is truly a wonderful way to meet their most basic, essential and immediate need - daily food.
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.
Send School Supplies to Schools in Boko Haram Area
Many children and schools in Africa lack adequate school supplies. The greatest barrier to the on-going education of girls and boys is the ability of their families to pay for school-related costs (which includes school supplies). By providing these essential supplies, we are enhancing the quality of education and learning. Providing supplies to schools of the Garoua area in Northern Cameroon affects a large number of children and youth that are susceptible to recruitment by Boko Haram.
Solar Lights Make Studying Safe in Liberia
In Liberia, thousands of students have no choice at night but to use kerosene lanterns and open-flame candles in order to be able to study or read. The smoke from these light sources is hazardous to their health. The flames are also a fire hazard. This project is providing safe, renewable, solar-powered lights to kids and youths in Liberia.
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 Provide New Sewing Machines for Trainees
Our tailoring program has taught over 150 individuals. The classes have grown large enough that there is no longer adequate machines for the tailoring trainees to use. We also need to replace worn-out machines. This project will provide 10 regular sewing machines and 1 special machine that embroiders / adds patterns or designs. Access to these new sewing machines will allow more students to master their tailoring skills and earning potential for future income-generating opportunities.
