Helping Children Forge Ahead With Their Education

Thank you from Janet  -  an upcoming leader
Thank you from Janet - an upcoming leader

Here is a feel-good report that I just received from Freetown:

"Thanks be to God for Develop Africa and its donor partners who have brought hope and dignity to the lives of many children and their families. Sponsorships from your generous donations continue to help children in Sierra Leone to forge ahead with their education and prepare them for a brighter future. Indeed without your sponsorship, many of these children would never have darkened the walls of  schools, whiles very few would barely have made it at primary level.

Students and their families are deeply grateful to donors who have opened a door of hope for them. Indeed your sponsorship is a lifelong assistance to the children and Sierra Leone as a whole. May God richly bless you all as you strive to develop our children into useful citizens."

This report includes a photo of Janet - one of the rising leaders receiving sponsorship funds through this project. We are continually pumped and excited about being able to together help rising leaders like Janet forge ahead with their education.  Our support is creating a definite and unchangeable bright future!  It sure feels good to be a change maker!  Nelson Mandela said, "Education is the most powerful weapon which you can use to change the world".
