Victor from Lumley, Sierra Leone

I'm trying to make a living as a painter. With just $625 I can open a gallery!

I need help to cover the initial rent. It will help grow my business and give me room to paint and draw.


I am a budding art painter / artist with exceptional talent. I come from a disadvantaged family with no resources to help me take my talent "to the next level."

My plan is to open an art gallery where I will have ample room to paint. At this gallery, I will be able to showcase my paintings and earn some income / a living.

I need help with covering the rent for a place that will be my art gallery. This will help my grow and market my business - a place where people can come see my art.

Meeting this need will help me because I will have room to paint and draw. I am currently limited because of space constraints.

Victor is gifted and approached Develop Africa asking for help. He has done some COVID-19 related art work for us - drawing digital images showing people washing their hands, wearing cloth masks etc. I met him personally in June 2019. We have been assisting him with donated art supplies.
