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.
