Reviewing housing options

Dear project partners

We have spent the past couple months reviewing options and possibilities.  The current options that we are considering are as follows:

1. Improve the current facilities - arrange with the landlord to add a couple more rooms, better toilet facilities etc.

2. Build / buy a house

3.  Rent / lease a house

Here are some updates.

Build or buy a house:  we have reviewed 3 houses that are available for sale and we found them to be on the expensive site - as high at $400,000.

Rent / lease a house: There are several houses that are available in this regard and we have looked at 2 of them.  One of the houses that appear to be ideal is located in an area of town called Juba.  Photos are included in this report.  In the next month we will be furthering discussions with the landlord to see if we could arrive at a reasonable price.  We also plan to continue to view other houses that are available for lease.

With your kind assistance, we hope to make progress in this regard in the next 1-2 months.  Thanks for your support.

Cordially

Dream Home Celebrates One Year - Hope, Courage and Learning

Happy Birthday Dream Home!
Happy Birthday Dream Home!

Dear Project Partners,

It's hard to believe that the Dream Home opened its doors to Ebola orphans over a year ago already.  It has been one amazing year of progress and growth - thanks to your support.  

Over the past year we have been through times of sickness and health. We have been through times of want and plenty.  Overall it has been an amazing journey of hope, courage and learning.

In May, we celebrated the Dream Home being open for one year. Food and drinks were shared and the kids danced with joy and thankfulness. They performed a skit. There was also presentation from Geraldine.

A celebration each month: With 22 kids, there is never a dull moment. Each month we have a small birthday party to recognize and celebrate each child. Our goal is to treat these kids as the special kids that they are.

Over the past year the kids have gone from being isolated orphans to a family that is dreaming again - thanks to the support they have received.  We could not have supported these deserving children without your support and we are so thankful to you!

With Deepest Appreciation,

The Develop Africa and Dream Home Team

The proof of the pudding...

Jeminatu
Jeminatu

Dear Project Supporter,

We greatly appreciae your ongoing support to provide girls, like Jeminatu, with computer training classes.
Schools are currently closed and will reopen in september, but please watch Jeminatu, who is in class 4 (or 4th grade) explain some of the skills she has learned this past school year- formatting text and insering a table.
You can watch the video of Jeminatu here- https://youtu.be/TppmuGnyTXU
Jeminatu thanks you for giving her the chance to take computer classes.   This computer training is made possible by your support and it is making a difference not only for girls like Jeminatu, but for future generations. 
"Education is the most powerful weapon we can use to change the world." -Nelson Mandela
We couldn't agree more.  Together we are empowering these girls and changing the world.
With Great Appreciation,
The Develop Africa Team
