Project Supporters,

Because of YOU, more girls are getting their education and the support they need to become future leaders in Africa. The FAWE school, an all-girls school, was able to add 6 new monitors to their computer lab thanks to your support.

The teacher reports that the classes were so effective that the girls love coming to their computer class. The students are now showing proficiency in moving the mouse, typing on the keyboard, changing the desktop background, changing date/time, opening programs like LibreOffice Writer, closing/minimizing/maximizing programs, and many more.

The classes for the next four weeks is as follows:

Week 1

Class 5 & Class 4- will learn about Inserting a Table, Editing a Table, Formatting a Table

Week 2

Class 5 & Class 4- Working with Shapes, Drawing a line/circle/rectangle, and Formatting a Shape

Week 3

Class 5 & Class 4- Shading, Understanding Borders

Week 4

Class 5 & Class 4- LibreOffice Math, Opening LibreOffice Math

 

These girls are looking forward to what they are going to continue learning. Your support is profoundly changing not only the individual girls' lives but also the entire nation. Our recurring donors are making a continuous impact and we are truly grateful for the ongoing support. 

If you are not yet a recurring donor, we warmly invite you to consider setting up a recurring donation. Even a few dollars a month will go a long way. Consistent support is the key as this is the best way to ensure ongoing impact. 

Please also share this with your contacts and invite them to consider supporting this worthy, ongoing project.

Project Supporters,

Thanks to your ongoing support, the Develop Africa Sierra Leone (DASL) team held another girls’ mentoring program this past week on the topic of dental hygiene. Twenty-one young ladies between the ages of 10-20 years old in Freetown attended March’s mentoring session.

The purpose of this month's girls mentoring session was on dental hygiene (in particular teeth brushing) among the girls and to identify the importance of dental health education. The guest speaker demonstrated appropriate tooth brushing by using circular tooth brushing starting with the outer components of the teeth and ends with the inner components of the teeth. She then gave each girl a new toothbrush and toothpaste. Then the attendees all enjoyed a meal. 

The girls' mentoring program focuses on a different topic each month geared toward helping girls develop positive self-esteem and also provides guidance in taking actions that promote their health and well-being.   Your support is changing girls' lives. Our recurring donors are making a continuous impact and we are truly grateful for the ongoing support.

If you are not yet a recurring donor, we warmly invite you to consider setting up a recurring donation. Even a few dollars a month will go a long way. Consistent support is the key as this is the best way to ensure ongoing impact.

Please also share this with your contacts and invite them to consider supporting this worthy, ongoing project.  If you have any questions, please feel free to email us at GlobalGiving@developafrica.org.

Project Supporters,

More girls are getting their education and the support they need to become future leaders in Africa, thanks to YOU!  Our girls' clubs known as Gyal Pekin for Betteh Clubs (Young Girls must grow and fulfill their dreams) provide the interface needed to relate with these girls and work alongside their parents especially as support groups to facilitate the process of helping them realize their dreams.

The first Gyal Pekin for Betteh Club was recently opened in Kamawornie village. The aim of this club is to prepare these girls to face the challenges of life and help them make informed decisions and choices. During the club’s first meeting, the girls were provided with sanitary pads, notebooks, and pens, thanks in part to your support.

Your support is profoundly changing not only the individual girls' lives but also the entire nation. 

If you are not yet a recurring donor, we warmly invite you to consider setting up a recurring donation. Even a few dollars a month will go a long way. Consistent support is the key as this is the best way to ensure ongoing impact.
