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 Jereme’s, received extra support in the form of a bag of rice, one gallon of cooking oil, and onions.

Jereme's family was very thankful for the extra support that is helping Jereme have healthy meals so he can focus his attention on studying and not hunger. Jereme hopes to become a teacher when he completes school. 

We greatly appreciate your ongoing support for the future leaders in Sierra Leone. 

Our recurring donors are truly making a lasting difference for these future leaders in Sierra Leone. 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.

The Develop Africa Sierra Leone team visited the Services Secondary School and distributed science lab supplies for the students. In Africa, most especially in Sierra Leone, science students have been challenged with a lack of proper laboratory equipment in carrying out practicals and experiments.

During the distribution, the Program’s manager, Abu, told the pupils to put the equipment to good use and make sure not to allow the challenge of life to stop them dream big.  He said-

 

Good afternoon, ladies and gentlemen. They say education is the key to success, that is what people usually say but I would always say education is a poor man’s friend.  The fact that you are from a poor background like mine does not stop you from dreaming big.  So, what we are doing today, is to create a platform for you to understand that, we always have something to give back to society irrespective of our backgrounds. Your story must be different and that is why we are encouraging you all. This is just the beginning of what probably we could do depending on how far you guys will put this to use. All of us here have the opportunity to achieve our dreams if we set our eyes on the big goal, it might be tough, it might be difficult, it might be unexplainable, but if you are determined you will make it. Life is always going to challenge you, so my encouragement is when life challenges you to move to another next level, you can surpass that challenge. Work hard, study hard, and you will be the next scientist that will change the narrative of this country.  You could be the next scientist that will change the narrative of Africa, you could be the next scientist that will change the narrative of the world, we are counting on you. As an organization, we are proud that we could come alongside you and help.    

 

Both the Principal and students were very grateful to the Develop Africa Sierra Leone team and donors for the generous donation of science lab supplies as they are very needed in Science Lab.

Your support for the future leaders in Sierra Leone is greatly appreciated. Our recurring donors are truly making a lasting difference for these future leaders in Sierra Leone. If you haven't had the chance to sign up for a recurring donation yet, we warmly welcome your ongoing support.

Students in Sierra Leone are preparing for the exams that promote the student(s) to the next grade. Those tests are the National Primary School Examination (NPSE), which promotes Class 6  (elementary) students to Junior Secondary School (JSS), the Basic Education Certificate Examination (BECE) which promotes Junior Secondary students to Senior Secondary School (SSS), and the West African Senior School Certification Examination (WASSCE) which is the final exam of Senior Secondary School.  Once a student passes the WASSCE, they are then able to go to college.

Thanks in part to your support, Nathaniel received study guides and practice tests in both English & Mathematics to prepare for his WASSCE. After passing his WASSCE he hopes to go to college and study medicine with the goal of becoming a medical doctor. Nathaniel was very thankful for the study guides and practice tests and expressed his gratitude saying- 

Hi, my name is Nathaniel. I am one of the beneficiaries of Develop Africa.  I want to say thank you for these past papers. These past papers that you have given me will help me a lot and will help me emerge with better grades in my upcoming exams that will take me to the university level. Thank you. 

Your continued support is greatly appreciated by Nathaniel and the other future leaders in Sierra Leone.  If you haven't had the chance to sign up for a recurring donation yet, we warmly welcome your ongoing support

Currently, there are 85 students attending computer classes at the Develop Africa Sierra Leone (DASL) Computer Lab. There will also be two more classes added in the next month for Hardware and Networking and for the Microsoft Office package. The students are at varying levels in their computer training, which includes Microsoft Excel, Microsoft Word, Microsoft Publisher, Microsoft Access, and Microsoft PowerPoint. Classes are set up so that everyone has access to their own computer and are available at varying times and days depending on the group each student is in.

There are 41 students learning how to use Microsoft Word and then they will move on to Microsoft Excel. There are 31 students currently in the Microsoft Publisher class and they will move on to Microsoft PowerPoint next.  There are 13 students learning how to use Microsoft PowerPoint; they are currently working on PowerPoint animations (text and object). This particular class will be certified with a certificate of completion following this class.

We greatly appreciate your ongoing support for the future leaders in Sierra Leone. Thanks to you, more youths and young adults are getting the computer training they need for success in today's technology-driven environment.

Boys March Mentoring Session
Boys March Mentoring Session

The third boys’ mentoring program was held in March at the Develop Africa Sierra Leone (DASL) Computer Lab.   A total of 19 boys attended this session. Hygiene kits were distributed among mentees as a take-home package and transportation, food, and drinks were also provided to the boys. 

The topic of this session was adolescent health and relationships including biological and psychosocial changes during adolescence, social and emotional changes, and healthy relationships in adolescence. The session was covered by local medical practitioner Ishmael.

Your continued support is greatly appreciated as it will enable more boys' mentoring sessions and the educational resources they need to become 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
