Dear project partners

Thanks to your ongoing generosity students at an additional school are now using new books and supplies. These supplies are strengthening the educational foundation of kids at the UMC Calaba Town Nursery / Primary School. There are 160 pupils in the school, aged 3 - 16.  

The kids and teachers were delighted to receive the supplies.  Joyce Kosseh, the Head Teacher, sent a letter expressing her appreciation - available here.  We are so excited about the opportunity that we have to help build a stronger generation of leaders in Sierra Leone.

Schools are still in session in Sierra Leone and will close in July.  The children are looking forward to their break.

A new batch of school supplies and books was recently shipped and will arrive as the summer closes and the children get ready to start the new school year.  

Your continued generosity and support is what enables us to continue to help educate these future leaders of Sierra Leone.

Thank YOU for making a difference!

Warmest Regards,
The Develop Africa Team
