We are Together Lowering The Risk of Malaria

Dear Project Supporters,

Your support has helped us provide mosquito nets to families and children who are now sleeping well at night, free from mosquito bites and malaria. Salamatu, Mariama and John (pictured) are so grateful for your support.

Statistics indicate that less than 10% of children sleep under protective nets in Sierra Leone, where malaria is still a frequent and killer disease.  

Malaria is sadly still the most common disease. In the past year, at least 2 known kids that Develop Africa has supported with school supplies have passed away.

Each net we are able to provide these families saves lives and significantly lowers the risk of getting malaria. This risk is further reduced by provided training on the importance of their use. As a result of these interventions, families are healthier and live longer.

Providing bed nets is an ongoing project until 100% of the children in Sierra Leone sleep under a protective bed net.  We want to change the statistics and prevent Malaria, which will save thousands of lives, mostly young children, each year.

Thank you so much for your support!


With great appreciation,
The Develop Africa Team

Empowering the Next Generation: Mission Possible!

Dear Project Supporters,

Your donations are making a positive impact on the next generation of leaders in Freetown. Thanks to your support we have been able to send and distribute books and school supplies to the United Methodist Church Primary School at George Brook, Freetown.  

Please watch the video of the United Methodist Church Primary School students singing their school song and excitedly accepting the books.

An article in the Huffington Post caught our attention that we would like to share: 

"Unless we change course, nearly half the world’s children born this year will end their school years without the basic skills needed for the global labor market in 2030. And come the middle of the century, one African child in three will leave school without completing their basic secondary education. By then, Korea, Japan and Taiwan will deliver higher educational opportunity for 80 percent or more of their school leavers while the Central African Republic, Congo and Niger will, at best, struggle to reach five per cent."

Together we believe we can change these statistics.  This mission is possible.  We are changing lives and destinies, one child at a time.  

We appreciate your continued support as we educate the future leaders of Freetown.  Help us change the predictions that only 5% of African children will have the opportunity to attend school.  Help us make sure no child is left behind.  Thank you!

With great appreciation,
The Develop Africa Team

Agnes Has Started her Business - Thanks to You!

Agnes says "Thank you"
Agnes says "Thank you"

Dear project supporters,

Thanks to your support, we were able to provide a microfinance loan to Agnes. 

Agnes has started her business of purchasing items and selling them on credit. The first set of items that she purchased was several Techno cell phones.  She has sold them and will be receiving funds from the sale in the next 1-2 months. (It is a common practice in Sierra Leone to sell items on credit - where the buyer pays the seller in 1 or more installments over 1 or more months).

She was delighted to receive your support and expresses her thanks in this video

Your support has helped make Agnes and others acheive their business dreams! Thank you so much for your support.

With great appreciation,
The Develop Africa team
