We greatly appreciate your ongoing support of the Ebola orphans living in the Dream Home.
Raising children involves a range of daily needs and the outgrowing of clothes and shoes. Thanks to your generous support, we are able to continue to do that.
The Dream Home children are all working hard in school and are doing well. The kids enjoyed celebrating birthdays for Kadiatu B, Alhaji, Daniel and Regina in January and February.
Over the last 3 months, the kids had several visitors who brought a wide range of gifts and supplies. The Kuyateh family donated a wide range of grocery items and candy. Juliana and her friend Mariama also visited and donated toiletries and some groceries. Pastor Vidal and his wife made a surprise visit and brought drinks and biscuits.
Visit from GlobalGiving: The kids were also delighted to have a visit from Alix Halloran, the GlobalGiving Field Traveler in Sierra Leone on March 22nd. GlobalGiving sends representatives to visit project partners so they can observe how funds are being used to benefit local communities. This helps GlobalGiving ensure high-quality projects. Alix also visited several of our other projects.
In Alix's post-visit report, she provided the following feedback:
"Develop Africa's projects are creating lasting change in the lives of so many children and young women. They are passionate about making an impact in their communities."
We are super-excited to be partnering with GlobalGiving. Your support as a donor is helping us make a definite impact.
We invite your continued support for the Dream Home children so that each of them can grow up to be healthy, educated adults who give back to their community.
