Shifts run on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays, or on Tuesdays and Thursdays. Classes are held from 9:30-11:30am, 12:00pm-2pm, and from 3:00pm to 5:15pm every day.

Computer classes include- Introduction to Computer, Parts of a Computer, Input and Output Devices, Basic mouse and Keyboard Techniques, Typing Master, How to use the Internet, and Microsoft application programs -MS Word, Excel, PowerPoint, Access, and Publisher. Classes are set up so that everyone has access to their own computer.

Project Supporters,

Your support is helping future leaders like, Steven, get their education.  Steven received school supplies, protective masks, and all his school fees for this year thanks in part to YOU.  

Steven lives in the Banga farm community, one of the poorest neighborhoods in Bo Town district in the southern part of Sierra Leone.   He is attending the Ansarul Islamic Secondary School Bo and his favorite subject is English.  Steven dreams of becoming an accountant in the future, he would love to help change the face of his country's economy.  Your support is helping him get closer to his dream job.

Steven expressed his gratitude in this video-

Hi, my name is Steven.  I am starting high school this year.  I am so excited to learn about English. I'm so thankful for receiving this support. Thank you!      

Students, like Steven, and their families are truly grateful for your support that is providing them with the resources they need to become the Future Leaders of Sierra Leone. If you are not yet a monthly donor, we warmly invite you to continue helping the future leaders in Sierra Leone by signing up for a recurring donation.

Dear Project Supporters,  

Your support is greatly appreciated as it continues to make an impact on the future leaders in Sierra Leone. Thanks to your generous support a new hands-free washing station was recently set up at Dantrimark Academy at Waterloo.

The students at Dantrimark Academy at Waterloo were encouraged to use the hands-free washing stations not only during this period of Covid-19 but on an ongoing basis as it helps promote much-needed hygiene in their schools and reduce the spread of germs.

The design of the mobile hand's fee washing is essential to limit cross-contamination between hand washers. The main components of the system entail: a water tank with a holding capacity of 200 Liters and a sink that holds the water and direct it into another third component which is the wastewater holding bucket and on the right side is a sub dispensable unit and on the left, a tap and are both operated by foot.

The students at Dantrimark Academy at Waterloo were very thankful for the handwashing station, saying it was a dream come true that they won’t have to fetch water on a daily basis. 

These students and families are truly grateful for your support that is providing them with the resources they need to become the Future Leaders of Sierra Leone. If you are not yet a monthly donor, we warmly invite you to continue helping the future leaders in Sierra Leone by signing up for a recurring donation.   

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.

Current Computers in DASL Computer Lab
Current Computers in DASL Computer Lab

Dear Project Supporters,

We are excited to announce that 30 brand new computers and monitors have been purchased thanks to your generous support. The computers are high-quality, efficient, and durable fanless computers that can handle extreme temperatures.

These computers will be replacing all of the computers at the Develop Africa Sierra Leone (DASL) computer lab and are expected to last a minimum of five years. These computers will be used for computer training in the DASL computer lab and will help thousands of students.

The current computers and monitors, while older, still work and will be going to the FAWE computer lab.

These purchases would not have been possible without the generosity of donors like YOU.  You are making a difference for the future leaders in Sierra Leone!

If you have any questions, please feel free to email us at GlobalGiving@developafrica.org.

 

Warm regards,
