Both the Senior and Junior students of the Carolyn A. Miller have successfully completed the West Africa Examination. We are proud to say that through the support of GlobalGiving and all of our donors were able sent 48 Junior high students and 52 Senior high students. The last school year we sent 25 senior high students, it means that through donors are making a great process really. We are so grateful to all of our friends, supporters and donors for their love they continue to show the less fortunate kids of Liberia. We have been able purchased two acres of land in Johnsonville outside Monrovia where we want to build the school. As you may know we are in rented building that which is causing us a lot and a special donor that we explained problem and desire was able to donate the money that purchased that property.

The school still has up to the end of June to run and we are still in need of funding to complete the school year. We have teacher salaries for May and June, preparation of school report and cards and closing program and our next rent payment.

We want to use this opportunity to thank all of our supports, donors and friends for all of their support and their resources they continue to give for the development and the betterment of needy kids of Liberia. You are really making a difference at this time when the whole world is crying due to financial crisis in the world. Please feel free to get to know how your resources have been used by us. We will also appreciate your ideas and participation in this project. I want you to know that you are all shareholders in this project and we are accountable to you.

The Carolyn A. Miller high school on Friday, Feb. 25 had a splendid quizzing, baseball and football competition with the Ebenezer high school in Paynesville. The competition which started at 11:30 A.M. with the indoor competition (quizzing) was viewed by more than one thousand two hundredth (1,200) students from the both institutions at the Ebenezer auditorium were Carolyn A. Miller school led by the captains Mohammed Daramy and Victoria.    The match was watched under a good atmosphere at the Ebenezer campus by some staffs of Carolyn A. Miller School, was as good as ever since the beginning of this academic 2012.

 

The next outdoor competition which was the baseball started at 1:45 with the girls of the Carolyn A. Miller High school walking away with a super victory of seven point’s margin (10-3). The girls who played under the watchful eyes of the sport director (Sylvester Walatee) were very excited for another victory.

And the activities continue and were climax by a football match. The match that saw lot of CAMHS supporters with a tragedy mood led by their captain after missing the first penalty in the 34 minutes of the first half which came to an end of zero all. The second half started at about 4:30 P.M.  By which Ebenezer came to a score in the 60 minutes of the second half. Then came in the 80 minutes again when striker Moses Vah of the Ebenezer high school came scoring the second goal which give Ebenezer a 2:0 win over the Descending Falcons of the CAMHS.

Sporting activity is one of the interesting activities that make kid happen but this is still under developed at CAMHS since there has not been a lot of attention due to financial problem but I am sure that as time goes by there will be a great improvement. We want to take this time to thank Globalgiving and all of our donors and supporters. We want to say thank you for your support and may God bless you. We highly appreciate your love and all of your support. As you can see from photographs, the kids now use computer but it we have difficulties with keeping the current constant since we have to buy gasoline to run the computer program we want to say please do not give up continue to support us you are really making a difference. Your supports are always amazing to these kids without your donation they will  not have a future. Please get to us whenever you are free to do so we need your idea and input since we are all partner to this project.

One can never tell the future of a child just by looking at them, there is a potential in every child that is born it doesn’t matter their location but the most important is how to get out that potential. The very child that may be in the street that has no food, education may be the world greatest man or woman. The free and quality education provided by VAAFD is making a great impact on the lives of the less fortunate kids of Liberia. They are happy that they are in school can have been care for like any other child in Liberia who patents are providing for their education. And in addition to their education, there has additional program provided that is computer that which many kids in Liberia have never touched. We are proud to have GlobalGiving as partner and all of the donors that donate through GlobalGivng. The school enrollment has increased so over the year, we now have over 700 students plus who have enrolled for the 2011/2012 school year and this program has been successful because of GlobalGiving and its donors. As we receive more kids, the demand on us gets higher and we are encourage to do what we are doing since it will bring about development of attitude, self-empowerment and building up tomorrow leaders who will bring about positive charges in society. The building we are renting for our school spaces are getting smaller and we are now anticipating of building our own school so that we will be free from renting and have better and improve place for the kids learning. We want to begin by buying an acre of land that may cost $6000.00. Thank you to all of your support and we appreciate you and we will be happy if you can continue to request feedback from this program since we are now partner. We can never be successful in the business without you.

The Carolyn A. Miller High school on Friday Dec. 2, 2011 had her second game in the ongoing Paynesville Inter School sport Association (PISSA) in Zuba town, Paynesville. The league which comprises of over 20 schools in and around Paynesville produces over 1,000 fans (students) from various schools.

The tournament comprises of kickball, soccer and quizzing. The kickball game started at 11:30 PM in which CAMHS lost to her opponent.

The soccer match started at 2:45 PM when striker Adonis Mahnwen came scoring in the 15 minutes of the first half and in the second half again Adonis came live with another goal in the 30th minutes of the second half from the right corner of the left extreme which took CAMHS through for the third round of the tournament with four (4)
points after a 1 all draw with the first match. We want to use this opportunity to extend thanks and appreciation to our donors, friends, sponsors and support for their contribution that is play a significant roles in the lives the less fortunate kids of Liberia. Please keep in touch, we will be happy to receive personal emails from
you to inquire from us about this work. We are all shareholders and we all need information about this project. We are in need of sporting equipment as well as other learning materials. We now have the computer lab open and the kids are now learning computer and they are so proud of themselves.

Thank you so much for all of the love and financial support without you we cannot have a school running for these kids. Please be proud of yourself that you can give someone a future.  

It is about two weeks since the school year begins and the kids are happy that they are back to school. We want to thank you GlobalGiving and all of our donors for the love and the support they continue to give these kids. We have been working over time to see into it that the school have a successful school year again. Many parts of the building had been leaking and that has been challenging to have thing done since it require a lot of cash but we have been able to do 75% of that but the rain is a big problem for the couple of the class rooms.

 

There are many new faces that entered but among them is Morris a young man whose father is a blind man. Before the school year begins I received a couple of calls from Morris' father that I never knew but he requested to meet me but I was out of Monrovia. I came back to Monrovia after couple of weeks and I returned John called and I made an appointment for him to meet. We met with John and Morris upon the appointment set and he requested me to help take charge of his son's education since he is blind and he cannot afford to sponsor his child to school. But the interesting thing is that John is a student in another school. I told him that our school was free for returning refugee kids and other vulnerable kids in Liberia so his son was qualified to attend.

 

Morris is a KG2 student and heis  happy to be in school. Morris is a 12 years old young man. His father wants him to acquire education so that he can become someone better in the future to help him as well. We are starting the computer program for the kids for this academic year and it requires a lot of resources since we need to buy a generator and will always have to it fuel.

 We want to appreciate all of our loving and wonderful supporters and donors again and which to hear from your comments you are making a difference without you we will not be able to run a free school for these kids.
