Dear Project Supporters, 

Thanks in part to your ongoing support 25 drums full of school supplies have arrived in Sierra Leone. Distributions to multiple schools and students will take place over the next few weeks as students get ready to go back to school in September. 

These drums are full of school supplies that will make a difference for hundreds of students in Freetown, Kamawornie, Bo, and Makeni.  Students from elementary school through high school will receive much-needed supplies including- pencils, pens, paper, notebooks, book bags, rulers, erasers, pencil sharpeners, crayons, glue, and more.  The drums also include calculators, solar lights, and kindles/e readers/iPads.  Teaching and classroom supplies are also included for teachers such as chalk, teaching materials, and books.

Each step of the process of getting school supplies donated, shipped to Sierra Leone, and then distributed to students is only possible because of generous donors like you!

Our recurring donors are truly making a lasting difference.  If you haven't had the chance to sign up for a recurring donation yet, we warmly welcome your ongoing support as we continue to provide children in Sierra Leone with the educational resources they need to be the future leaders of Sierra Leone.

Please share this project 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.

 

Warm regards,

Amy and the Develop Africa team

Project Supporters, 

One of the future leaders that your generous donations have helped support is Franklyn (pictured above). Franklyn has been a part of the Develop Africa sponsorship program since he was 9 years old in class 5.  His father has not been a part of his life since he was very young, and his mom struggled to send him and two older brothers and one younger brother to school. 

Franklyn is grateful for the support he has received these past 12 years making it possible for him to go to school.  He is also grateful for the school books, school supplies, solar lights, bed nets, and nutritional support he has received.   

Franklyn is currently in the first year of his degree course for International Relations.  He would like to become an International Relations Official and build connections between his country and other countries.

Special thanks to YOU for being part of "The Village" that helped support Franklyn over the years. 

We invite you to help change more future leaders' lives. Making a monthly donation is the most effective way to help students get their education, but every dollar donated makes a difference! 

If you haven't had the chance to sign up for a recurring donation yet, we warmly welcome your ongoing support to continue to provide children with the educational resources they need to be the future leaders of Sierra Leone. 

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, 

Amy and the Develop Africa team

Project Supporters, 

We are so thankful for the GlobalGiving Bonus Day support that we received to help us build a classroom in Kamawornie.  Children are currently in crowded classrooms at the school in Kamawornie, Sierra Leone, but the donations raised at the GlobalGiving Bonus Day are getting them one step closer to a new classroom.

We are so thankful for the support we received.  We raised $955 of our $6500 goal.  We would greatly appreciate your continued support in helping us reach this goal.

Funds will help cover the cost of building materials - nails, zinc sheets, cement bricks/blocks, doors, windows, wooden doors, workmanship, desks, chairs, etc.

Thank you for your ongoing support to help construct a new classroom that will enhance the learning and education of kids in Kamawornie.We greatly appreciate your generous support.  You can donate here

David is finishing up his first year in high school or Senior Secondary School 1 (SSS1) and is studying hard for his final exams.  David expresses his gratitude for the support he recently received in this video saying- 

I'm so thankful for receiving this support today. Thank you very much!
