We greatly appreciate your ongoing educational support for students in Sierra Leone. The International Day of Eradication of Poverty was on Oct 17th. Education is a proven way to alleviate poverty and bring lasting change.

Worldwide, 836 million people still live in extreme poverty. The 2 most affected regions are SubSaharan Africa and South Asia. In these regions, 70% of the global population lives under the poverty line. Access to education contributes to poverty reduction because an educated population is able to take informed decisions contributing to equal rights, economic and natural resources, and to granting basic services for all men and women. -https://en.unesco.org/themes/education/sdgs/material/01

Providing quality education to the future leaders in Sierra Leone is helping them to rise above poverty, and become independent and better decision-makers. It brings lasting empowerment and definite change.

"Education enables upward socioeconomic mobility and is a key to escaping poverty."- UN-SustainableDevelopment -Education 

Our recurring donors are making a continuous impact, which provides consistent educational support to students in Sierra Leone. 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. 

If you have any questions, please feel free to email us at GlobalGiving@developafrica.org.

With great appreciation,

Amy and the Develop Africa Team

Ibrahim with his new school supplies
Ibrahim with his new school supplies

Thirty-two primary and secondary school students in Kamawornie received school support including school supplies and tuition support. Each of the students was very grateful for your support. 

One of the secondary students that received support was Ibrahim.  He has just started his second year of Junior Secondary School (JSS2), his favorite subject is Science and he dreams of being a doctor to help take care of the sick in his community.  

One of the primary students that received support was Fatmata. Fatmata is in class 6, her favorite subject is English and she desires to become a nurse when she is older.

We are grateful for your support that helped 32 students in Kamawornie start school this year! Making a monthly donation is the most effective way to help future leaders get their education, but every dollar donated makes a difference! 

If you haven't had the chance to sign up for a recurring donation yet, we warmly welcome your ongoing support. If you have any questions, please feel free to email us at GlobalGiving@developafrica.org.

 

Warm regards,

Kabba in the boys' mentoring session
Kabba in the boys' mentoring session

Kabba, Hassan & Frederick talk about what they learned at a boys' mentoring session on self-esteem and setting goals. In the video they say

My name is Kabba. In today’s session, I learned that setting a clear goal is the main driving force of achievement and success.

Hassan said, "I learned that in whatever you are doing, no matter what the circumstance you are facing, you should never give up just continue to believe in what you are doing, one day, you will go to achieve your goal."

Frederick said, "I learned that our self-esteem is very much important in our whole achievement."

 

The boys' mentoring session was made possible thanks in part to donor support.  Ongoing support provides students in Sierra Leone with the educational resources they need to become future leaders. If you haven't had the chance to sign up for a recurring donation yet, we warmly welcome your ongoing support
