Educate Repatriated Refugee Children in Liberia

by Vision Awake Africa for Development
Jan 25, 2011


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! 

We are so proud of you because you are making a difference. Without you this project could not exist, therefore you are so special to these kids and to all of us. We also want to ask 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. Please feel free to contact us with your ideas and feel a major part of this noble project so that you can know how your resources have really been spent on these kids. We also need you for decision making since you are a shareholder in this project. The survival of this project is 100% depending 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. The good news here is that the 50 donated computers have arrived and a board member from Kpazawala Ballayan Foundation is in Liberia to get it from the port and give it to the school.

Thank you again for your support for the past year, we appreciate you and we love you. We think of you as a 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.
