No one wants to stand to study or do their homework.  Thanks to your support, Isaiah & Samuel received their own desks and chairs for studying and doing their homework so they don't need to stand to study anymore. 

They sent this video of appreciation-

Samuel: Hi, my name is Samuel  

Isaiah: HI, my name is Isaiah 

Samuel: We want to say a big Thank you for giving us tables and chairs to study 

Both: We love you all!

 

Isaiah attends the local primary school and is in class 2. He excels in Mathematics, English, and Creative practical art and loves to play football. He dreams of becoming a Pastor when he grows up.  Samuel is in class 4.  and his favorite subject is English. He also enjoys playing football and dreams of becoming a lawyer when he grows up.

Solar light helps student pass exam
Solar light helps student pass exam

In many countries globally, the change in seasons brings with them a change in the number of hours of light each day.  In the US, the time recently changed 1 hour because of Daylight Savings Time.  

This change emphasizes and acknowledges the importance of light and the benefits of light.  

We all can get more done when there is light or more light. Our lives are more productive and we are happier.  Light enables and rejuvenates.

While our beneficiaries in Sierra Leone do not have to adjust to the seasonal changes in the number of daylight hours,  the availability of light is also important to them.  

Having light at night so that they can study makes a big difference.

Mohamed (pictured) was very happy to receive a solar light. His comment was as follows: 

This solar light will help me to read at night and pass my exam.

This light will help him advance his education and career.

Together we helped to meet a need. We helped to remove a roadblock to his success.

This makes me want to do a happy dance.

Mentoring Attendees with watches
Mentoring Attendees with watches

The second boys’ mentoring program was held in February at the Develop Africa Sierra Leone (DASL) Computer Lab.   A total number of 25 boys attended this session. Watches 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 time management because it became apparent that it was a needed tool at the previous mentoring session as mentees arrived late due to morning errands and poor time planning.

The speaker asked the attendees:

  • What is Time Management?
  • Tips for Time Management:
  • Why Time Management?
  • Individual Plans for 2022:
  • Benefits of Time Management:

The speaker then asked the mentees to write down their goals for 2022 and present one of the goals to the class. He also advised the boys to learn to manage their time and remove non-essential tasks or activities and focus on things that are beneficial to their studies, that would positively improve their lives. He said that the key reason for success is that of time management and the difference between successful individuals and non-successful ones is that of proper time management.

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

Kamawornie students attending afterschool classes
Kamawornie students attending afterschool classes

 

The students and principal in Kamawornie village express their gratitude to Develop Africa for their support with the extra classes organized for the children after school.   These afterschool classes do not cost the families anything thanks to generous donors like YOU.  

The principal expressed his sincere gratitude for the afterschool classes in this video-

I am Sorie, the Principal of Kamawornie Evangelical Junior Secondary School and also a teacher at the Develop Africa children's Lessons that are usually organized in the evening hours 4-6pm. 

We are very happy because, before this time, children were really suffering for classes, they go to other classes in which their parents have to pay huge amount of money. But since Develop Africa came in to help, today the children attend classes every day and we have seen lots of changes. 

Before, they could not read and write by themselves, but today, they can read and do their assignments at school and home by themselves.

We want to thank you very much. Thank you!
