Dear Project Supporters,
According to the Huffington Post, "The largest gender gaps are in west and central Africa, where 77 girls are enrolled in secondary school for every 100 boys." And, "During the Ebola crisis, with five million children not in school, it was girls who suffered most." - Here's How We Can Help Educate and Empower Millions of Marginalized Girls Worldwide
Isata is a child of a single parent. Isata was out of school, because her mother could not afford to pay for her schooling. Her mother is a hawker of charcoal and Isata works alongside her. They live in one of the slums of Freetown.
Now with the support and sponsorship provided by Develop Africa, Isata is enrolled in school and is now in class six. Though she still hawks charcoal after school to augment the family income, she does very well in school. She is always among the first five positions.
Isata and her mother are very grateful to Develop Africa for their support of her education. She wants to be a teacher when she grows up.
Thank YOU, because of your continued support Isata and other girls like her can go to school to achieve their goals.
