Liberian Girls Reading Room – Books In the Project

On behalf of AALG’s team, I would like to submit our report for April -July 2015. Since the submission of the last report in, most of the activities surrounding the reading room project in Liberia have been on a stand still due to the outbreak of the 2014 Ebola Virus Disease in Liberia. However, we are EXCITED to announce that the Monahdee’s Clubhouse Adventure Reading is now OPEN, as of July 1, 2015. The Jungle Reading Room will reopen on August when school resumes (which will be around August 31, 2015).  

 

The Cachelle International Creative Arts Center hosted a 6 weeks camp at Monahdee’s Clubhouse Adventure Reading Room. The camp catered to children between the ages of 3 to 12 years. This was a great way to attract children to the joy of reading. Although the camp offered many outdoor activities, the main focus was on reading activities.

 

As always, thanks to the continuous support of our donors and the Global Giving Foundation for giving us the opportunity to create a positively impact our communities.

Liberian Girls Reading Room – Books In the Project

On behalf of AALG’s team, I would like to submit our report for February – March 2015. Since the submission of the last report in, all activities surrounding the reading room project in Liberia has been on a stand still due to the outbreak of the Ebola Virus Disease in Liberia. Most of our volunteers, including myself, are currently working with the National Ebola Response Team on the opening of schools.

February 2014, Liberia, along with Sierra Leone and Guinea was hit with the world’s worst outbreak of the Ebola Virus Disease (EVD). According to the World Health Organization (WHO), over 5000 people have been infected with this deadly disease. Unfortunately Liberia has seen the highest number of Ebola cases and death to date. This resulted to Liberia’s President Ellen Johnson-Sirleaf issuing a State of Emergency. Schools were reopened in February 2015 after being closed for one year.

Our hope was to assist children going back to school with our Books in a Bag Project. However, we felt short of our goal. With things slowing getting back to normal in Liberia, we are planning to reopen the Reading Rooms the end of April 2015.

As always, thanks to donors like the Global Giving Foundation, for giving us the opportunity to create a positively impact our communities.  We will continue to monitor the Ebola situation in Liberia. During which time, our team will continue with administrative activities, including receiving training and fundraising.
