The Connecting Destiny School is a school A Brighter Tomorrow for Africa (BTA) started supporting a few years ago when I was there and saw such a need. I had to respond. The school has been established for children who are quite young and are seriously under-supervised by their parents. They used to roam the streets of Freetown – the capital of Sierra Leone – but are now attending school each day at Connecting Destiny, thanks to funding from BTA.
This particular school in Freetown is now open after a very long break due to the COVID-19 pandemic. The aunties continue the use of the veronica bucket, soap, and sanitizers in observance of the Covid 19 protocols and very fortunately the health of all of the pupils and teachers is great. The children were all extremely excited to be back in school and some new pupils have joined the school and we had two new teachers as well since the number of students is growing.
BTA was providing food in a different manner when this school was closed but now the children are gathering for education and nourishment safely and securely. They are flourishing despite the very difficult times in which we are all living.
Connecting Destiny continues to express our gratitude to all BTA supporters for the feeding programme. The parents of all of the children are so very appreciative of this gesture and how we are able to efficiently and effectively address the needs of their children during COVID-19. Again-thank you for your support!
