Britt, Scholarship Beneficiaries, Janet and Joanne
We are extremely happy to bring you this project update. All of the children receiving scholarships did extremely well and were promoted to the next class. Their parents, happy with the academic progress, of their children, expressed their appreciation for your on-going support. It’s indeed a rewarding feeling to be a part of laying a great foundation for these children through education.
On May 5th, Develop Africa school supplies and scholarship beneficiaries had the unique opportunity to meet Britt Lake, the Program Operations Manager of GlobalGiving. Britt spent a day visiting Develop Africa's projects in Sierra Leone. A picture of Britt with a few of the beneficiaries is provided below.
Janet and the Sierra Leonean team were honored to host Britt. The visit involved a review and general monitoring of the different projects that Develop Africa has on GlobalGiving. We are happy to report that Britt was happy to see the progress being made and the work that we are doing with your support.
Education continues to be very much on the minds of people in Sierra Leone and the current education system is being reviewed. See below for a link to an article on this. We are praying that this change will help ensure that they receive an even better foundation.
Gearing up For the New Academic Year: In the coming months, we will awarding new scholarships and we would be so grateful for you on-going support, that is helping us impact the lives of these children. Please take a moment to make a donation today or send us feedback with your comments and suggestions on how we can improve etc. Be sure to also send an email to your friends and family asking them to support this worthy venture.
Thank you so much for your support!
Cordially and best wishes
