Scholarship Beneficiaries and Parents
In January this year, Develop Africa provided scholarships to children in Sierra Leone. A picture is provided in this report of some of the beneficiary children and parents. The children and parents were very grateful to receive this on-going support that is making a true difference in their lives. Financially, conditions have not improved in Sierra Leone and your support is help ensuring that they stay in school - providing a pathway to empowerment and their individual and national independence.
On May 5th, Develop Africa scholarship beneficiaries also 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.
We continue grateful to you for your support which means more to the children and youths in Sierra Leone than you would ever imagine. We would appreciate hearing from you and receiving additional support from you in the next month as we plan towards the new academic year. And don't forget that June 16 is GlobalGiving's Matching Day, where they are matching all donations at 50% up to $1000 per donor per project. Thanks for your support.
Britt, Scholarship Beneficiaries, Janet and Joanne
