Dear project partners

The last quarter of the academic year was very busy for the pupils in and out of the school.The month of May is usually a very busy period for the pupils and students all over the nation.

Thanks in part to your generous donations they were able to go on field trips. They visited the museum and the multipurpose sports complex of the nation’s capital.  They also joined the other students of other schools for the national day celebration.

During the end of year ceremony tokens of encouragement and appreciation were given to parents who took good care of their children. Drama sketches were prepared and presented to the happy parents by the pupils. Teachers also received gifts of encouragement and appreciation for being the best during the academic year.

Thank you again for making this school year a success through your generosity!

Warmest Regards,

Develop Africa Team

Dear project partners

Thanks to your ongoing generosity students at an additional school are now using new books and supplies. These supplies are strengthening the educational foundation of kids at the UMC Calaba Town Nursery / Primary School. There are 160 pupils in the school, aged 3 - 16.  

The kids and teachers were delighted to receive the supplies.  Joyce Kosseh, the Head Teacher, sent a letter expressing her appreciation - available here.  We are so excited about the opportunity that we have to help build a stronger generation of leaders in Sierra Leone.

Schools are still in session in Sierra Leone and will close in July.  The children are looking forward to their break.

A new batch of school supplies and books was recently shipped and will arrive as the summer closes and the children get ready to start the new school year.  

Your continued generosity and support is what enables us to continue to help educate these future leaders of Sierra Leone.

Thank YOU for making a difference!

Warmest Regards,
The Develop Africa Team
