Dear Project supporters

2016 is off to a great start at the Dream Home!  Hope your year is off to a great start too!

Your kids were very happy to see the start of a new year.  As is the common tradition in Sierra Leone, they attended a New Year's Eve service at a local church.  

On the 9th of January the children had the opportunity to go for a special lunch at the Francesca Restaurant.  This was followed by visit to a small amusement park called Family Kingdom - courtesy of a member of the local management team.  The kids had a lot of time to play at the Family Kingdom children's playground.  It was a day of fun, surprise and excitement.

In the 2nd week of January, school reopened for a new academic year. The kids were happy to be in their new uniforms, shoes with new bags - thanks to YOUR support. The National Primary School Examinations results were finally published. Osman and Aaron made it to Junior Secondary School.

Joshua Sandy has volunteered to teach 2 of the children from the home (Mabinty and Fatmata) who will be taking the National Primary School Examination (NPSE) this academic year.

The children have received all their text books and are highly motivated to study.  We are ensuring that they make progress academically.  

Thanks so much for your support that is helping to provide a stable environment where they can be a kid, play and learn.  

We deeply appreciate your support!
