Dear Project Supporters,

Thank for your continued support that is enabling students, like Christiana, to complete their education. Christiana received a scholarship for her final year of Senior Secondary School.  Her next step will be to work toward becoming a banker, her desired future profession.

Please watch this video of appreciation from Christiana.  In the video she says:

 I am Christiana, a beneficiary of the Develop Africa Sponsorship. I would like to say a very big thank you for your unreserved support towards my academics all through this year. Thank you so very much, Blessings.

 Your support has made an impact on multiple schools and many children's lives, like Christiana.  Many of the students would be unable to attend school without the scholarships that you help provide. We are greatly appreciative of your support that is helping prepare them for a brighter future.

 

With great appreciation,

The Develop Africa Team

Dear Project Supporters,

Thanks in part to your ongoing support, more future leaders received scholarships for this school year.   A total of 51 students received scholarships to go to school this year.  There were 23 students in primary school and 28 students in secondary school that received scholarships for school. 

Some parents in this part of the world find it financially difficult to send their children to school. The scholarships made school possible for each of these students. School materials like books, bags, pencils, crayons and also solar lights were distributed to some of the beneficiaries.

Included are photos of several beneficiaries including-

  • Agnes who just started class 6 and hopes to be a banker when she completes schooling.
  • Joseph just started Senior Secondary School (S.S.S 2) and is working to be an Engineer when he completes school
  • Joy who is now in class 6 and would like to be a doctor when she grows up.

You have helped make an impact on multiple schools and many children's lives with your support. We deeply appreciate your kind assistance. We are thankful that we are doing our part to prepare them for a brighter future.

Please join us in providing more children in need with uniforms, school supplies, and scholarships.   

With great appreciation,
The Develop Africa Team

Dear project supporters,

Since the last project report, we have together raised $146.81. YOUR support helped Sorie further his education - giving him a new start and opportunity in life.

Sorie lives in a small village called Kamawoni. He wanted to continue his education by going to a teacher's college. He tells us a little about himself and expresses his gratitude below.

"My name is Sorie. I live at Kamawoni village. Kamakwe town.  I am a school teacher, teaching at the Kamawoni village school.  I am an orphan. My mother and father died when I was at a tender age.  I come from an extended family with four siblings that look up to me for support.  I shall be going to the Teachers college this academic year.  Thank you for your support."  Read more in his letter - in his own writing...

Thanks for being a part of helping Sorie, a deserving future leader!  Together we are building a new breed of quality leaders. We deeply appreciate your on-going support!

With gratitude
The Develop Africa Team

Dear Project Supporters,

Thank you for your ongoing support to the Future Leaders in Freetown.  You are truly making an impact on the lives of the children by giving them the education they need to be the future leaders.

One of the students in Freetown, Daniel Valentine, sent a thank you video expressing his appreciation for the support he has received.  Your donations helped to cover his tuition, uniforms, books and school supplies. We are so thankful that we are together supporting his passion for educating and improving himself.

In the video, Daniel Valentine says "I love going to school. Thank you for your support! "

Thank you again for your gift of education to the future leaders in Freetown!  We are confident that the future of Sierra Leone is so much brighter as we together help to raise the future leaders.

With much appreciation,
The Develop Africa Team
