DASL team organizing book bags and school supplies
Dear Project Supporters,
We told you in a previous report that 25 drums full of school supplies arrived in Sierra Leone this past month. This week the dedicated Develop Africa Sierra Leone (DASL) team packed 147 book bags to be distributed to students from Nursery School through Secondary School in Bo, Kamawarnie, Freetown, and Makeni. Distributions to multiple schools and students will take place over the next week as students get ready to go back to school in September.
The 147 bookbags were separated by grades:
Nursery School - Class 2 book bags contain 12 notebooks, 2 erasers, 10 pencils, crayons, a ruler, an umbrella, and a pencil sharpener.
Class 3- Class 6 book bags contain 6 notebooks, 2 erasers, 10 pens, 5 pencils, crayons, a ruler, an umbrella, and a pencil sharpener.
Junior & Senior Secondary book bags contain 8 notebooks, 2 erasers, 10 pens, 5 pencils, crayons, a ruler, an umbrella, and a pencil sharpener.
Over the next few weeks, we will share reports with photos, stories, and videos of the school supplies being distributed in each area.
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.
