Smile Liberia Partners with Church Aid International

Smile Liberia recently completed a partnership with Church Aid International (CAI), a local Liberian NGO working to provide education for impoverished communities. The partnership is intended to broaden the scope of Smile Liberia's school building project and increase the impact it will have on children and communities living in poverty.

As a result of the partnership, and a number of other potential impediments beyond our control, there is a strong possibility that the project site will be relocating to another community, located on the outskirts of Monrovia, which has similar needs as the West Point community. 

CAI has agreed to provide a 5-acre piece of land in the community of Caldwell, Monrovia, Liberia for the school building project. This will double the original targeted number of beneficiaries and provide extended learning opportunities to the community.

Upon successful implementation of our school building project, Smile Liberia and CAI will deliver a school to the Caldwell community that:

  • will be first of its kind in Liberia to serve impoverished children; with focus in Science, Math, Engineering, and Technology
  • will have vocational trainings in technology and agriculture
  • will have a community business center/internet cafe
