New Computers Expand ICT Training Capacity

More computers for basic training

Dear CAPEC ICT supporters,

We are happy to announce that we have purchased 10 new computers for our CAPEC ICT program. This has increased the number of pupils and teachers who now have access to our training program at school.

Our training will continue during this school period and after school closes at the end of May. This will enable more pupils and out of school youths to complete their course.

The students have indeed made significant strides! To date, 80 children are now computer literate. They can use a computer to write their own personal stories and experiences, and write letters. At least half of the children who are in class 6 have created their own email accounts.

We are happy to let you know that we have another group of volunteers who will be running the ICT program during holidays. Over the past three months, we have learned new programs from them.

Thanks so much for YOUR support! Because of YOU, our ICT program has provided more students with the essential equipment, training and exposure needed to help them learn basic computer skills.

We could not do this without YOU.  Thank YOU!

Best Wishes,

Develop Africa team

We Are Providing Consistent Support - Thanks to YOUR Help

Dear Project Supporters,

Thanks to YOUR support, we have made another shipment of personal protective equipment (PPE) to Sierra Leone. In February, we delivered a very large box of PPE containing primarily coveralls to Dr. Brima Kargbo at the Ministry of Health and Sanitation.  See photos available with this report.

After a drop, unfortunately, it is reported that Ebola outbreaks are on the rise again since January.

The International SOS stated in their March 4, 2015 update: "Although Ebola cases were declining rapidly in December and early in the new year, a rise occurred in the final week of January. More districts reported newly-confirmed cases. Most of the new cases were not in registered contacts. WHO labeled transmission "widespread" as February began."

The National Ebola Response Centre (NERC) in Sierra Leone reported in their March 2, 2015 "Ebola Outbreak Updates" that there were 17 new confirmed cases in Sierra Leone. There are 8,370 cumulative confirmed cases and 3,180 cumulative deaths.

Your on-going support is still vitally needed in providing protective equipment for health workers.  This keeps them safe from contracting Ebola while they help to eradicate this disease.

Thank YOU! We greatly appreciate YOUR support. Because of you we will continue to make progress in the fight against Ebola.  We are sure to win - hopefully very soon.

Best Wishes,

Develop Africa team
