500 Girls off the Street & Into School in Liberia.

Feb 5, 2013

The school is almost done!


Things are moving forward fast at More Than Me and it's because of you. We now have 6 Liberian staff, a full day of school with meals for 108 children and after school programs where the girls are learning awesome things like sewing, how to use a computer, and jewelry making. Our More Than Me academy is due to open this month and will serve around 200 girls by the end of next year. A volunteer nurse is coming from the US at the end of the month to de-worm the girls and do basic check ups!

This is Angel. Her mom was 30 years old. She died last month. Angels future will be different. Girls who go to school live longer healthier lives. This is what all of us are doing together. Empowering these girls to have a choice and not just accept a life as a slave to survival.

Angel has a future and we are not stopping. There are hundreds of 1,000's of girls forced to the streets and now it's time to flip the script.

We are excited for this year. Couldn't do this without you!
