A house is not a home until the bare walls have been dressed with remnants of the heart. The children's hearts were filled as they beautified each room to suit their passions, dreams and memories. It is no longer an orphanage, it is a home.
"No one lights a lamp and puts it in a place where it will be hidden... Instead they put it on its stand, so that those who come in may see the light." -Luke 11:33
The gifts were generously donated by SENT MINISTRIES. Each box had assorted items for children,like toys,soap,caps,bal and dolls. The Dream Home children were very excited about receiving the gifts.
No child ever dreams of being insignificant. Education is a key that unlocks the door to the unimaginable. In the classrooms are future doctors, lawyers, teachers and government officials. Therefore the children's faces are bright and their minds are attentive when class is in session, because they know they one step closer to their dreams.
Freetown, Sierra Leone experiences very heavy rainfall, between 118 to 169 inches a year. In Freetown, Sierra Leone, because of the torrential rain downpours and volume of rain annually, thousands of kids who do not have rain costs, miss several days to weeks of school each year. As they walk to school under the rain, they become dripping wet.
We are addressing this setback to their education by providing rain coats. In the photos, the kids at the Dream Home are happily wearing their new coats. With raincoats, the kids can stay dry and consistently attend school.
19 children have taken residence so far in Develop Africa's Dream Home – an orphanage for confirmed Ebola orphans. In the photos you can see the prayer time during the dedication and children trying out their new beds etc.

Raising and taking care of kids, as you realize, is not s simple task. The proverb says "It takes a village to raise a child". In other words, it takes much more than 5 or 10 people to raise these kids. It takes a village. That includes everyone. That includes YOU. Individual, families, organizations, companies etc. See Sponsors and Partners.
