Your support helped ship these much-needed supplies to future leaders in Freetown, Sierra Leone this past month. During the course of the distribution a total number of 82 kids from 5 different schools received school supplies:
A local TV station, SLBS aired this clip about the distribution and other Develop Africa programs.
In the clip, the Program Manager gave an overview of activities and interventions of Develop Africa Sierra Leone such as: the setting up of the Creating Pathways Centre established for girls who got pregnant during the course of the Ebola outbreak, scholarship for less privileged kids across the country, supply of learning materials to different schools right across the country, distribution of mosquito nets to kids, post mudslide and flooding intervention and free computer tutorials to school going kids.
The children all received a bag each containing, three exercise books, a pack of sharpeners, eraser, paper glues, a pack of crayons and two pens, pencils and rulers. The program manager encouraged kids to take advantage of the learning materials and use them for the intended purpose and make their education as their number one priority. He made them understand that if they choose education today the world will come running to them tomorrow
