Packing the school supplies into drums to ship
Packing the school supplies into drums to ship

Dear Project Supporters,

We are pretty excited to report that 
we are currently stuffing 15 drums or barrels full of school supplies to ship next week to future leaders in Freetown. 

We are in a happy place.  This process thrills our hearts because we know these supplies will make a huge difference and empower the learning and education of kids in Sierra Leone

These school supplies include backpacks, calculators, crayons, notebooks, pencils, solar lights, pens, markers, erasers, glue, rulers, pencil sharpeners, paper, art supplies, and school books.  

Your continued support is helping cover the cost to ship these 15 drums to Freetown.  The school supplies will be distributed free to students in Sierra Leone at the beginning of the new school year this fall.

We hope that this opportunity and news also brightens your day!

We welcome your ongoing support as we continue to provide children in Sierra Leone with the 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

Dear Project Supporters,

Your continued support is greatly appreciated as the COVID-19 pandemic caused the nationwide closure of schools in Sierra Leone. 

The students' primary option for continuing school is to receive their lessons via educational radio broadcasts -  until schools are able to reopen.   

Many students in Freetown do not have radios. Thanks in part to your support over 20 students have received radios so that they could continue their learning at home. Two of the students that received radios are pictured here, Mishael and Esther.

Esther is in class 3 and her favorite subject is math.  Mishael is in junior secondary school and enjoys English and religious moral education. He hopes to become a lawyer when he grows up so that he can help his community. 

Your support has truly made a difference for Mishael, Esther, and other students in Freetown, Sierra Leone.  They are now happily learning from home.  Thank you for supporting their education.

We welcome your ongoing support as we continue to provide children in Sierra Leone with the resources they need to be the future leaders of Sierra Leone. 

We encourage you to start a monthly recurring donation here.  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.

Warm regards,
Amy and the Develop Africa team

Dear Project Supporters,

Your ongoing support is greatly appreciated as it continues to make an impact on the future leaders in Freetown.  Thanks in part to your support, 41 kindles were distributed at El-Bethel Academy and Success Tall Academy Nursery and Preparatory School. Develop Africa Sierra Leone organized a one-day training session for teachers from El-Bethel Academy and Success Tall Academy Nursery and Preparatory School on the use of the Kindle device.  During the training, the teachers were taught how to use the different features and functions of the device and how to access e-books stored in the E-reader technology (kindle). The training was interactive as teachers from both schools were given the opportunity to ask questions.

After a successful training session with teachers from the two selected schools, 31 kindles were donated to El-Bethel Primary and Secondary School and 10 to Success Tall Academy, Nursery and Preparatory School.  Headteachers, teachers, and pupils of both schools were very excited to receive the kindles and were very thankful to the donors and Develop Africa for the kindle devices.

You can see the distribution of kindles at each of the schools in the below albums
