We want to remain grateful to all of our supporters, donors and friends who are making all of the sacrifices with the resources to support this project.

We were able to maintain 550 students with the donations you made to support for the refugee kids returning to Liberia and the vulnerable kids of Liberia.

During the school year we sent 25 grade 12th students for the West African Examination for the 2010/2011 school and we are proud to inform you that 18 students made a successful passed and we finally conducted their graduation on Friday June 30th, 2011.

Appreciation

We want to say many thanks the entire Global Giving team for their support. And also want to thank our donors and supporters who have given our project the fullest attention. The Matching Day, March 16, 2011, was really a successful day since people who love us and have the interest in what we are undertaking here committed putting in their resources. We are very proud of you and we want to use this opportunity to extend our heartiest appreciation to you all.

 We have only one more month to end the 2010/2011 school year. The 9th and 12th graders have completed the West African Examination and as well as the school exam and they are now awaiting graduation while the 9th graders are waiting to be promoted to senior high level. This semester will end next month (June) will bring the school year to a close. Thank you very much for bringing us to a successful school year.

In remembrance of all the gifts we have received for this academic school year, on behalf of our students, staff and the entire institution, we want to say thank you for supporting our cause by supporting this organization and by investing in the educational need of the vulnerable children of Liberia, Africa.

We also received wonderful gifts from other interested people like donations of books and computers. The students are so proud of those donations. 

The enrollment of the school still remains 550 students which includes both returned refugees and war affected kids in the community. These kids are enjoying quality education with the efforts of our tireless volunteers and staff. It is incredible to have you as partners and donors. We have set a goal to help support these kids in their struggle for education and a brighter future. We need your help! 

You are very special because you are making a difference. Without you this project could not exist, therefore you are so exceptional to the future of these kids and to all of us. We are also asking if each of you could commit to a recurring donation this year, which will be highly appreciated. As much as the financial aspect of this project is very important to us; we also take into consideration your ideas, your participation as well as your total involvement.

We also need you for decision making since you are a shareholder in this project. The survival of this project is 100% dependent on you. Without your donation we will have no means to run a free school for these kids.

Our budget still remains $1700.00 per month and we have five more months remaining to end this academic school year 2010 and 2011 to achieve our goals for this school. 

 Thank you again for your support and commitment to this project, Africa, Liberia and the beneficiaries of this project. We highly appreciate you and your love. We think of you as good team players, as you keep us in your loving heart. We want to hear your views and ideas as we build a team and a network with Vaafd and Carolyn A. Miller School.

School progress

 We continue to appreciate the effort of globgalgiving and all of our potential donors. Thank you very much for all of the love and commitment you have given to this project we are really proud of you.  You are making a difference, if just everyone on earth was thinking and acting like you, we could not have all of the troubles that are affecting the people on planet Earth.

The school year is already coming to a close and your donations have made it possible for us to come at this far. Now your donation can give a child a smile and a hope for a better future. The school has finally received the donation of books and computers from Kpazawalla Ballayan Foundation a US based organization made up of some Liberian in California. But it is difficult for the school and kids to use the computers since we do not have generator to provide electricity to the school. Liberia as a nation has been out of electricity since the war in 1990, the entire country use generator as mean the of power source. We are very much grateful for the donated items. These items will really help with learning of the kids. In order for the computers to be used, we need to buy a generator that may cost US $4000.00.  That will help for the use of the computers and printer. It has been very costly for us print papers for test and other communicational materials.

  The total enrolment of the school still remains at 550 students, and through your love we have been able to register the 12th, 9th and 6th graders to sit for the West African Examination year. This will be the school second time participating in that exam “WAEC”. We are still faced with numerous challenges to make this program a success. I think due to the global financial crisis donation has been very much slow but we are happy that we are still together as a team and shareholders. We right now owed teachers for closed to two month salaries. And it has left with four more months to complete the academic school year successfully. Currently the school operational budget still remains $1700 a month - $1440 goes towards teachers’ salaries, $225 toward rental of the building, and the rest towards food for the free daily meal that the school provides to every student each day. It has been difficult for us to raise the said amount. I want to encourage you to please continue your support through globalgivig to enable our project to be a success. You have done a lot and you have been much committed making this project keeps alive without your support and donation we cannot have this project running.

 

Your donation gives a child a smile.

Vaafd had a wonderful and successful year in 2010, thanks to the many GlobalGiving donors for their love, support and care. 

We want to use this time of the New Year to appreciate all of the efforts, love and sacrifices our donors have made over the year 2010. In remembrance of all the gifts we have received for the year and on behalf of our students, staffs and the entire institution, we want to say "thank you" for supporting our effort by supporting our organization and investing in the educational need of vulnerable children of Liberia.

Abu Kamara was a refugee in Ghana and also a student at the Carolyn A. Miller school which is the only institution providing free and quality education to all refugees kids in that community. He was repatriated in 2009 to Liberia and he enrolled at Carolyn A. Miller school in Paynesville and he is now benefiting from Vaafd free educational program for repatriated returnee refugees says thanks to all VAAFD Donors and  the entire globalgiving team for being a great support to his education.

We now have the total enrollment of 550 students in Liberian include both returned refugees and vulnerable and war affected kids in the community. These kids are enjoying quality education with the efforts of our tireless volunteers and staff. It is incredible to have you as a partners and donors. We have set a goal to help support these kids in their struggle for education and a brighter future. We need your help!
