Summary

CAMES provides free education to over 500 children in Liberia who have relocated from the Buduburam Refugee Camp in Ghana as well as students who were internally displaced during the civil war.

What is the issue, problem, or challenge?

Liberia is recovering from years of devastating civil wars. Many Liberians spent years in refugee camps in neighboring countries. In one such camp, Buduburam in Ghana, a school was built by a refugee named Karrus Hayes with the support of an American sponsor, Cori Stern. Now that the war is over and repatriation has been underway, a free and safe learning environment is needed for the returning students and others in need in the community. It is our commitment to provide for these children.

How will this project solve this problem?

The Carolyn A. Miller School (CAMES) in Paynesville, Liberia, gives repatriated refugees of all ages the opportunity of an education by running a K-12 school. As well as a plan for a community college, adult literacy and scholarship programs.

Potential Long Term Impact

The aim is to build a co-educational boarding school and self-sustaining environment for 850 minors in the town of Suakoko, Liberia.
