Dream Job

Kadiatu is a young girl living in Freetown, Sierra Leone. Sadly, Kadiatu lost both of her parents to the ebola epidemic during the outbreak in 2013 and 2014. The rest of her family earns less than a dollar a day and cannot afford to support Kadiatu. She now resides in Develop Africa's Dream Home—an orphanage for Ebola orphans. Kadiatu's favorite color is pink. If she is able to continue her education, she hopes to one day become a lawyer.

With your help, we can send Kadiatu to school for a year! 100% of your donation goes toward helping Kadiatu attend school.

Update from the Field


Thanks to your generous donations, Kadiatu finished fourth grade in 2017! Your donations helped cover the cost of her food, school supplies, uniform, and medical expenses for a full academic year. Kadiatu is one of the orphans living in the Dream Home orphanage in Sierra Leone. Dream Home is growing and always accepting more children who don't have anywhere else to go. Without your support, the orphanage could not afford to support all the girls in their care. Kadiatu is determined to continue her education and one day become a lawyer. Your continued generosity will help Kadiatu finish primary school and pursue her dreams.
