Kamakwie Computer Lab Students
Kamakwie Computer Lab Students

We greatly appreciate your educational support for future leaders in Sierra Leone. Thanks in part to your support, more students are getting the computer training they need for success in today's technology-driven environment.  The students at Kamakwie Computer lab are all very thankful for the computer classes they are able to take.  Paul and the class express their gratitude in this video by saying

Good afternoon. My name is Paul, a student from the Wesleyan Junior Secondary school.

Since I started these computer classes, I have learned how to type, and know some of its parts, I know how to use the mouse. I thank the donors of these computers

Thank you, Develop Africa, for providing us with this computer Lab. 

 

The principal of the school also expressed his gratitude saying:

Please permit me to forward herewith a note of appreciation for the sincere and marvelous help all have rendered to the school by equipping a whole classroom with computers for the pupils to see themselves in the world of technology.

Many developments have taken place in the course of my present leadership and the computer program happened to be unique among others I must acknowledge that you have done a great deal for Wesleyan Secondary School, Kamakwie for which I am most thankful. Therefore on behalf of the community, the Students, and the Staff, I say many thanks to all for a job well done. I pray that the Lord Almighty opens more doors of provision for all that have put hands on deck for the development of the school.

This past Friday, August 12th, was International Youth Day. As we observed International Youth Day, Develop Africa reaffirmed its commitment to youth development and empowerment. We lend our voice, support, and commitment to creating a world of intergenerational solidarity among all ages. We agree that the potential of the youth that can be harnessed from continuous collaborations across generations.  In Sierra Leone, Develop Africa focuses on the development of youth to empower them to become future leaders, which is only made possible by generous donors like YOU!


In this video, the Develop Africa team in Sierra Leone (DASL) talks about how Develop Africa works to create intergenerational solidarity.


DASL Board member, Solade, says, "To achieve the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), the world needs to leverage the full potential of all generations. Therefore, solidarity across generations is critical for sustainable development.

In Sierra Leone, Develop Africa (DA) is mainly focused on providing educational capacity to less privileged families; across generations. DA collaborates to foster prosperous and equitable intergenerational relations and partnerships to ensure “no one is left behind" 

DA supports vulnerable children and youths aged six years and above from poor backgrounds- from essential primary to university or technical and vocational. We have ensured children are provided with the required school supplies and created the enabling environment that would equip them to gain the best investment and foundation education they can give an individual. As a result, these beneficiaries stand a chance to conquer their limitations and become successful in life.

Additionally DA ensures that the homes of beneficiaries are child-friendly by providing lunch and transportation for the children and youths through the microfinance support given to the homes Furthermore, Develop Africa efforts continue to put in place structures to support the promotion of intergenerational relations and partnerships."


Your generous support is greatly appreciated and is truly making difference for youths and young adults in Sierra Leone. If you haven't had the chance to sign up for a recurring donation yet, we warmly welcome your ongoing support.

Kamawornie Computer Lab
Kamawornie Computer Lab

In Kamawornie a computer lab has been opened in the past couple of months thanks in part to your support. This computer lab serves Kamawornie and several surrounding villages by providing computer training for primary and secondary school students. 

Abu, Develop Africa Sierra Leone Team Leader, said in this video

This is the computer training Centre, right at the heart of the Kamawornie village. This Centre came into existence a couple of months ago, this Centre has so far provided training for all the secondary school pupils and for some of the primary school pupils. Aside from those numbers, we also have other villages that are benefiting from this computer facility. Therefore, providing more chairs, providing more computers and more tables will make the environment more conducive and friendly. 

The primary computer teacher in Kamawornie said-

My name is Alie, I provide computer training in this village. I train 125 pupils in the Kamawornie school, and also, most primary school pupils are now joining our training, I have 15 new pupils that are also joining this computer training Centre that are coming from different villages.

 

Our recurring donors are truly making a lasting difference for youths and young adults are getting the computer training they need for success in today's technology-driven environment.  If you haven't had the chance to sign up for a recurring donation yet, we warmly welcome your ongoing support to help provide more tables, chairs, and computers for the computer lab in Kamawornie.

Thanks to your generous support, future leaders are receiving not only school supplies and school support but also receiving food to help with their needs. Families, like Marina's, received extra support in the form of a bag of rice, one gallon of cooking oil, and onions.

Marina's family was very thankful for the extra support that is helping provide her with healthy meals so she can focus her attention on studying and not on hunger. Marina loves to draw and create art and will start class 4 at the end of September.

Our recurring donors are truly making a lasting difference for future leaders in Sierra Leone, like Marina. If you haven't had the chance to sign up for a recurring donation yet, we warmly welcome your ongoing support
