The Dream Home Gets a Paint Refresh

Freetown, where the Dream Home is located, receives a lot of rainfall - with high humidity. The discolored and faded outside walls of the Dream Home were in need of a fresh coat of paint. You can see this in one of the group photos in this report.

Since the last report, this project has raised $50.  These funds were used towards repainting the entire Dream Home at a total cost of around $375 - using a weathershield oil paint.

Solar Lights Making Safe Studying Possible

Tens of thousands of kids and youths living in Sierra Leone study at night using kerosene lanterns and open-flame candles. Many of these homes are off-the-grid - with no electricity. 

Thanks to your support, 6 students that received our solar lights are now studying safe at night - with no risk to their health and lives.   They are so appreciative of the gift of safe studying - that you have given them.

This gift will also save the families hundreds of dollars in fuel expense over 2-3 years. Thanks again for your support!
