A Day of Fun and Laughter for the Dream Home Kids

On Saturday the 9th of January the kids were blessed with a treat from Edwina and Yvette. This included a lunch treat at Francesca's in Brookfields and a trip to Family Kingdom (Lumley Beach). 22 children, the Matron Mariama and the Supervisor, Victor Freeman, their two children, two volunteers from Door of Hope and Joshua Sandy went on the trip.
The group rode in a yellow school bus – just like the one in the States. They had a wonderful time on the bus.

Donations from Krio Descendants Union - Houston Chapter

Develop Africa is deeply grateful for the support and partnership of like-minded organizations that are committed to making a difference in Africa.  This support enables us to provide on-going assistance.

In December 2015, Develop Africa received a generous check and 22 school bags (with a wide range of school supplies) from the Krio Descendants Union (KDU), Houston Chapter.  This donation was for the Dream Home, an orphanage for Ebola orphans in Freetown, Sierra Leone.

Encouraging Good Behavior at The Dream Home

At the Dream Home, we are encouraging and rewarding good behavior. This is one of the steps we are taking in an effort to encourage the kids to be responsible and assist with duties around the home.  

  • Susan Grace was the best behaved person for the month of November.
  • Felicia won the most social person award for the month of November.
  • Fatmata Kellah and Mariatu Kamara were outstanding for the month of October and their room was the tidiest.

Dream Home Children Say Thank you!

The Dream Home children are all smiles playing soccer from the new soccer supplies that were generously given to them.  They also proudly wore their new uniforms and gladly received school supplies that were given to them from generous donors.  The Dream Home Children participated in Christmas Carol service in their school for the end of term and Christmas Break.  
They are so thankful to everyone who is helping them dream again.
