Project Supporters, 

We greatly appreciate your ongoing educational support for students in Sierra Leone. Oct 17th is the International Day of Eradication of Poverty, which is sustainable development goal- #1 End Poverty. Education is a proven way to alleviate poverty and bring lasting change.

Poverty entails more than the lack of income and productive resources to ensure sustainable livelihoods. Its manifestations include hunger and malnutrition, limited access to education and other basic services, social discrimination and exclusion, as well as the lack of participation in decision-making.  

One out of five children live in extreme poverty, and the negative effects of poverty and deprivation in the early years have ramifications that can last a lifetime.

Providing quality education to the future leaders in Sierra Leone is helping them to rise above poverty, become independent and better decision-makers.  It brings lasting empowerment and definite change.

Our recurring donors are making a continuous impact, which provides consistent educational support to students in Sierra Leone. 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. 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 greatly appreciate your ongoing educational support for students in Sierra Leone.  Recently, the computer hardware students went on a field trip to the FAWE School Computer Lab. The purpose of the field trip was to do practicals on setting up a computer lab.  The students learned how to connect and set up a desktop computer, how to identify various cables, and when and how to use them. The field trip was successful, and the students enjoyed it.  One of the students, Mariama, expressed her gratitude in this video saying- 

 

My name is Mariama. I am a student of Develop Africa Sierra Leone, I am here with my colleagues to set up a computer lab, and right now we are done fixing it, we are about to go. 

We just want to say many thanks to Develop Africa for supporting us and the knowledge they are giving us, we have gained a lot, we are really thanking them for impacting our lives. So bravo develop Africa!

Project Supporters,

We greatly appreciate your ongoing educational support for students in Sierra Leone. Thanks to you, more students, like Ibrahim, are getting the computer training they need for success in today's technology-driven environment.

Ibrahim benefited from an eight-week computer course this summer. The computer course aimed to introduce basic computer skills at the Develop Africa Sierra Leone Computer Lab in Freetown.

The course covered two topics;

 1. Introduction to computer

This topic focused on the following subtopics:

  • Parts of computer: Keyboard, mouse, monitor, CPU, etc.
  • Types of computers
  • Components of computers

 2.  Introduction to Microsoft Word.

Basic Microsoft word skills such as typing, formatting text, etc. were covered.

Ibrahim was grateful to take the computer class and sent a video of thanks saying-

 

Hello, my name is Ibrahim. I'm one of the beneficiaries of Develop Africa Sierra Leone. I'm enjoying taking computer classes through Develop Africa. Thank you for your support.

Thanks to your ongoing support of future leaders’ education, 29 students in Bo, Sierra Leone received financial support to pay for their school fees and school supplies for the 2021-2022 school year.   The students receiving school support ranged from Nursery school all the way through Senior Secondary school.

During the distribution, both the students and the parents were very excited and grateful about the educational support they were receiving.  Two of the beneficiaries, Emmanuel & Janet, expressed their gratitude saying in this video saying

Hi, my name is Emmanuel. I am in class 4; my best subject is English. In the next academic year, I can't wait to learn more about English. Thank you.

New Computers in the Computer Lab

Dear Project Supporters,

On August 30th the Develop Africa Sierra Leone Computer Lab received twenty-one new computers for the lab.  Twenty computers are for the students and one of the new computers is for the teacher.  This would not have been possible without generous supporters like you!

We greatly appreciate your ongoing support for the future leaders in Sierra Leone. Thanks to you, more youths and young adults are getting the computer training they need for success in today's technology-driven environment.

Our recurring donors are truly making a lasting difference for these future leaders in Sierra Leone. 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 in Sierra Leone with the educational resources they need to be the future leaders of Sierra Leone.
