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.
