Dear Project Supporters,

Your support has been greatly appreciated as the COVID-19 pandemic caused the nationwide closure of schools in Sierra Leone. 

The students' primary option for continuing school is to receive their lessons via educational radio broadcasts -  until schools are able to reopen.   

Many students in Freetown did not have radios when the schools closed. Thanks in part to your support over 30 radios were distributed to students so that they can continue their learning at home. Three of the students that received radios are Finda, Mballusa, and Festus.

Your support has truly made a difference for Finda, Mballusa, Festus, and other students in Freetown, Sierra Leone.  They are now happily learning from home.  Thank you for supporting their education.

We welcome your ongoing support as we continue to provide children in Sierra Leone with the resources they need to be the future leaders of Sierra Leone. 

We encourage you to start a monthly recurring donation here.  Even a few dollars a month will go a long way. Please also share this with your contacts and invite them to consider supporting this ongoing project.  

If you have any questions, please feel free to email us at

Warm regards,
Amy and the Develop Africa team
