Nutritious Meals Make A Difference

Dear Project Supporters,

Most of us think about what we need from the grocery store and what we are making for dinner at night, but we do not have to worry about being able to eat today.

Thanks to your generous support, now the Dream Home children do not have to worry about whether they get to eat today either. Your donations have covered nutritious meals for the Dream Home children this spring.

Eating nutritious meals will allow these 22-orphaned children to grow up healthy and strong.  The items purchased are from the five main food groups: fruits, vegetables, grains, protein foods - meats, fish, etc., and dairy.  

Thanks to your support, they are continuing to grow each day into healthy adults.  Thank you again for making a difference in the Dream Home children’s lives.

With great appreciation,
The Develop Africa & Dream Home Team

Dear project supporters,

Thank you for your continued support in providing microfinance loans. Your support recently provided Sarah with a microfinance loan enabling her to advance her retail business.

In this linked video, you can see Sarah with the food supplies that she plans to retail.  She says a big "thank you" to YOU - our donors.  Sarah says in the video:

This business will help me pay for the school fees for my kids and support my husband where his income is inadequate.  It will help me sustain myself. It will help me a lot.  Thank YOU donors - you have changed my life"

This loan gave a new lease of life to Sarah and her family.  It opened a new door of opportunity.

Your support has helped make Sarah and others achieve their business dreams! We deeply appreciate your support.

We welcome your on-going support in providing full support for other microfinance loans and other projects that you can see when you click or tap on the following link for Develop Africa.

With great appreciation,
The Develop Africa Team

Impact Update - 150 Trainees & Empowering Trainees to Start Fishing

Dear friends

Did you know that this project has trained over 150 trainees to date?  Thanks to your support - over 150 people have learned how to sew.  We are excited at having reached this milestone.

This school has had a significant impact in the Wellington community.  A good number of the youths and school dropouts have learned how to sew. We rejoice in being able to have this type of impact.

The school started with female tutors.  Now we have male teachers. We currently have 10 trainees. 

Going forward, our goal is to provide each of the trainees with a toolkit (sewing machine and some basic equipment / supplies (such as a coal iron, pair of scissors, needles, tape measure, table etc.). The trainees and teachers have expressly communicated that this is an urgent need.  This certainly makes sense as the graduating trainees need equipment assistance to start their own businesses.

We have together taught them "how to fish".  Now they need the necessary equipment to "start fishing".  This would complete the empowerment cycle.

Let us together help provide each of the trainees with a sewing tool kit ($200).  This would enable them to "start fishing" and truly empower them.

Thanks so much for your support

Sylvester and the Develop Africa Team
