One of the challenges of supporting 22 orphans that reside in the Dream Home is providing nutritious meals. Nutritious meals are crucial for these children to grow up strong and be healthy adults. With your support we are able to provide healthy snacks and meals to the children in the Dream Home.
We are deeply grateful to Pastors Vidal and Marie Cole for bringing smiles to the kids at the Dream Home, covering the costs of the Christmas party. Thank you for helping the kids to feel special and for making their day amazing! Much, much appreciated!
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.
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.
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.
Special Thanks to Cheedy and Glecy. Custom tailoring.
The month of October was very significant in the lives of the children at the Dream Again Home.

We are truly thankful and grateful to everyone who has contributed in diverse ways to care for the children and who have helped make the Dream Home an ongoing reality.
