Gibril & his mom
Gibril & his mom

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

Gibril's family was very thankful for the extra support that is helping Gibril have healthy meals so he can focus his attention on studying and not hunger. 

Gibril is currently in class four where his favorite subject is Social Studies. In his spare time, he enjoys playing football with his friends. Gibril dreams of becoming an officer in the Sierra Leone army because he wants to serve his country and save lives and properties

We greatly appreciate your ongoing support for future leaders in Sierra Leone, like Gibril.

Drums arriving in Freetown
Drums arriving in Freetown

Thanks in part to your ongoing support 27 drums full of school supplies have arrived in Sierra Leone. Distributions to multiple schools and students will take place in August as students get ready to go back to school in September. 

These drums are full of school supplies that will make a difference for hundreds of students in Freetown, Kamawornie, Bo, and Makeni.  Students from elementary school through high school will receive much-needed supplies including- pencils, pens, paper, notebooks, book bags, rulers, erasers, pencil sharpeners, crayons, glue, and more.  The drums also include calculators, solar lights, and kindles/e readers/iPads.  Teaching and classroom supplies are also included for teachers such as chalk, teaching materials, and books.

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.

We greatly appreciate your ongoing educational support for students in Sierra Leone.  The hardware & networking students recently had a practical. Prior to the practical, they had been practicing how to install an operating system on a virtual machine.  For the practical, the students were set up in teams and had to open the system units and remove the faulty hard drive and the old CMOS battery and then replace both with newer units that were purchased thanks in part to generous donors like you. They also did a RAM upgrade and successfully installed a Windows 7 operating system, Microsoft Office, Chrome, Media player, etc.

You can see the students taking the practical in this album 

The teams all successfully accomplished the practical and they can now set up a desktop computer, troubleshoot basic hardware problems, identify various hardware parts, major software, and its functions, and connect the right cables to the different components.

Your support is equipping students in Sierra Leone through education and skills training to be future leaders. Our recurring donors are making a continuous impact and we are truly grateful for the ongoing support. 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,

Students on their way to York Village
Students on their way to York Village

The mentoring program took 47 students (28 girls & 19 boys) on a field trip to York Village. Thanks in part to your support, each attendee received a take-home package of cornflakes, 1 roll of powder milk, one packet of sugar, and packets of biscuits. Transportation and lunch were also provided to the beneficiaries.

York village is recognized for its diverse historical content. The King’s Yard was the first site that was visited, then the tour guide took the mentoring attendees to the York cave where slaves were kept to be transported to Europe during the slave trade era.  The Town Hall was the final spot that was visited and the tour guide explained the history behind the construction and purpose of the Town Hall.

All of the students enjoyed the field trip and were grateful that they could attend and learn on this field trip.  Your continued support is greatly appreciated as it will enable more mentoring sessions and educational resources for the future leaders of Sierra Leone. If you haven't had the chance to sign up for a recurring donation yet, we warmly welcome your ongoing support

Thanks to your generous support, future leaders are receiving not only school supplies and school support but are also receiving life-saving bed nets. In 2021, 190 mosquito nets were distributed to families in Sierra Leone.   These families and individuals were all very grateful to receive a mosquito net; some of those distributions were highlighted in this video.

Mosquito nets create an effective barrier and provide protection from mosquito bites for two years hence preventing Malaria and reducing the burden of Malaria in Sierra Leone.

 "Malaria is a preventable and treatable disease that continues to have a devastating impact on the health and livelihood of people around the world. In 2020, more than two-thirds of deaths were among children under the age of 5 living in the WHO African Region."-https://www.who.int/campaigns/world-malaria-day/2022

We greatly appreciate your ongoing support for the future leaders in Sierra Leone. Mosquito nets will continue to be distributed to families in Sierra Leone in 2022 as a necessary item for students to sleep safely at night so that they are healthy and ready to go to school.
