Kids Helping Kids! 135 Backpacks Collected!

A group of Charlotte kids took a brief break from their summer vacation this year to volunteer their services for Liberian children in need! We hosted our Summer Back to School Supplies Drive in September for our beneficiaries in Liberia. We collected 135 backpacks and tons of school supplies, exceeding our 100 backpacks target! Yay! What was most remarkable about the campaign was that more than 20 kids from Charlotte, ranging from ages 5 to 18, volunteered their time to ensure the school supplies were collected and packaged to send to Liberian kids in need. The school supplies will directly be used by our beneficiaries, most of whom cannot afford the basic necessities for school.

Smile Liberia currently fully sponsors 250 elementary school children, from six community schools in Liberia. Our goal is to fully sponsor the education of 500 school children by 2020, and to build a world-class STEM school for elementary school children living in poverty. Thanks for all the support in helping us meet our goal!

We are thrilled to announce that we have secured full scholarships for 200 more impoverished boys and girls! At Smile Liberia’s formal luncheon in Liberia on Saturday, May 7, 2016, which marked the the kickoff of the Send ‘em to School Project, patrons and supporters pledged to sponsor up to 200 children through the 2016 – 2017 school year and until they graduate elementary school. About 50% of the beneficiaries will be children who have never been to school before. The other 50% will sponsor children in six different community schools where we currently operate.

Thank you for your continued support and partnership.

Reading is Essential!

Last month Smile Liberia donated a reading room to the Deki Early Learning Foundation, one of our beneficiary schools in Buchanan, Grand Bassa County, Liberia. The room will be used as both a mini library and a literacy development center for the impoverish elementary school of approximately 100 boys and girls.

Smile Liberia provided children reading materials for various grade levels from K - 5th grade, as well as bookshelves, tables, and chairs. The Deki reading room is the first of Smile Liberia's plan to provide a reading room for each of its beneficiary school. 

All funds and reading materials were made possible by loyal supporters like you!
