We had a kickball tournament!

Last Saturday, we had a kickball tournament for our girls. They absolutely loved it! We had cold water and PB&J sandwiches for them thanks to donations from Exclusive Supermarket and UN Drive Supermarket in Monrovia. Our photographer Morgana really captured the fun and excitement of the day!

Other Updates

Our founder, Katie Meyler, was interviewed on MSNBC last Saturday on the Melissa Harris-Perry show. Melissa even promised to visit Liberia and meet the girls!

Our Liberian Teaching Fellowship program is off to an amazing start! We will have orientation in NYC June 14-16. Our fellows are super talented and we can't wait to showcase them in future updates. They are going to make big changes in Liberia this year. We can feel it!

Donation Opportunity

Match Day is coming up on Wednesday, June 12th. On that day, your donation will be matched by 50% and will go toward giving these girls the ability to make choices for themselves. Will you partner with us in opening the MTM Academy doors by donating on June 12th? To give you an idea of how much school costs in Liberia, one girl can attend school for a year on $350 (That's less than a dollar a day!).

Thank you so much for your continued support! Until the next update!
