Project Report | Jan 25, 2022
Fifty-Three Solar lights Distributed in Sierra Leone in 2021

By Amy M Baty-Herbert | Project Coordinator

Project Supporters,

One of the challenges these future leaders face is not being able to study at night due to no electricity.  Solar lights are very instrumental in providing some sort of electricity to homes in deprived communities in Sierra Leone. It helps students to study at night (most especially in homes where there is no national electrical power) and make good grades in school.

In 2021, fifty-three solar lights were distributed to students in Sierra Leone. Twenty-three solar lights were distributed in Freetown and thirty in Kamawornie village. Feedback received by the students indicates that the solar lights have been very helpful to all. 

In 2022, Develop Africa's goal is to purchase and distribute 100 solar lights to students in Sierra Leone. We are so thankful for your generous support this past year and ask for your support again this year to help purchase and distribute 100 solar lights this year.   The future leaders in Sierra Leone are also so thankful for your support.

Our recurring donors are making an ongoing difference and are helping meet the educational needs of the future leaders in Sierra Leone. If you are not yet a recurring donor, we invite you to consider becoming a recurring donor. Click here to set up a recurring donation for future leaders.  

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, 

Amy and the Develop Africa team
