Dear Project Supporters, 

Your support has made a lasting impact on Sara's life.  She became pregnant during the Ebola crisis and had to drop out of school, but because of generous donors like YOU, she was able to continue her education and is now in her last year of studying business management!   She tells us about her journey with Develop Africa in this video-

My name is Sara.  I got pregnant during the Ebola outbreak in Sierra Leone. Because of my condition at that time I was neglected by my family and friends so I decided to drop out of school

Thanks to  Develop Africa Sierra Leone who came to my rescue and enrolled me at the Creating Pathways Centre where I benefitted greatly from school, counseling, computer study, and some tutoring 

After I got credited from the Centre, Develop Africa Sierra Leone continued to sponsor me where I am presently studying business management at the National Center for Vocational Study. I just promoted to my final year.

I am very much grateful because I am one step from achieving my dream of becoming an administrator.  I want to say a very big thanks to Develop Africa Sierra Leone for keeping my dream alive. 

We greatly appreciate your support, which is helping young ladies get their education like Sara. Your continued support is truly changing not only individual girls lives but also the entire nation. We warmly invite you to start a monthly recurring donation here. Even a few dollars a month will go a long way. This is the best way to ensure an ongoing impact. 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 GlobalGiving@developafrica.org.

 

With great appreciation,

Dear Project Supporters, 

We greatly appreciate your support, which is helping young ladies get their education like Elizabeth and Hannah. These are only two of the girls that your support has directly impacted.   Elizabeth is finishing her first year in Senior Secondary School (SSS1). She loves going to school and would like to become a journalist. Hannah is finishing class 4 this year. She loves dancing and going to school. 

Each year of education a young woman receives helps her improve her overall health and her family's overall health, reduces violence, helps her stand up for her rights and increases her earning potential. 

Your continued support is truly changing not only individual girls lives but also the entire nation. We warmly invite you to start a monthly recurring donation here. Even a few dollars a month will go a long way. This is the best way to ensure an ongoing impact. Please also share this with your contacts and invite them to consider supporting this ongoing project.

Dear Project Supporters,

We greatly appreciate your support, which is helping young ladies get their education like Thomasia. She is in the process of retaking her end of high school exams. And Geraldine, not only lost her parents to Ebola but is an Ebola survivor as well. She has been a part of the Develop Africa family since 2014 and is now in her second year of college. Her goal is to eventually become a lawyer so she can give back to her community.

Geraldine and Thomasia are only two of the girls that YOUR support has directly impacted. You are our hero... You make our work possible.

Your ongoing support is truly appreciated as young women like Thomasia, Geraldine and others are being empowered through education and with their education, they are empowering the future as well.

International Women's Day is celebrated annually on March 8 and focuses on the 5th sustainable development goal, which is gender equality and empowerment of all women and girls. Gender equality is not only a fundamental human right but a necessary foundation for a peaceful, prosperous and sustainable world. This day helps us review progress made and take action towards a better future.

Women in Northern Africa hold less than one in five paid jobs in the non-agricultural sector. The proportion of women in paid employment outside the agriculture sector has increased from 35 percent in 1990 to 41 percent in 2015 https://www.un.org/sustainabledevelopment/gender-equality/

Per UNICEF, In country after country, educating girls yields spectacular social benefits for the current generation and those to come. An educated girl tends to marry later and have healthier children. The children she does have will be more likely to survive; they will be better nourished and better educated. She will be more productive at home and better paid in the workplace.

We are very thankful for your support - that is helping to build a better future for hundreds of young women. if you have not already done so, we warmly invite you to start a monthly recurring donation here.  Even a few dollars a month will go a long way.  This is the best way to ensure an ongoing impact. Please also share this with your contacts and invite them to consider supporting this ongoing project.

Balu says Thank You!
Balu says Thank You!

Dear Project Supporters, 

We greatly appreciate your support, which is helping young ladies get their education.  Balu and Sara, who are former students of Creating Pathways Centre,  are both now enrolled in a Business Studies Program at the National Centre for Vocational Studies. Both Sara and Balu expressed their deep gratitude to the GlobalGiving donors for the educational support they received. 

Each year of education a young woman receives helps reduce violence, improves the overall health of the entire family, helps a young woman stand up for her rights and increases the earning potential of that young woman.

Your support has truly changed Sara & Balu’s life. We look forward to helping more young ladies get their education and become future leaders in Sierra Leone.  We are thankful for your support and 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.
