School Supplies for Six Impoverished Schools

Over the summer, we got busy collecting school supplies and sanitary items for the kids we support in Liberia. We are happy to report that the supplies made it safely to Liberia and the team distributed them to six schools in impoverished communities. Most amazingly, the team had to travel across the St. John River, via canoe, to distribute supplies to our newest beneficiary school, the Edina Public School. Edina is a small rural town located outside of Buchanan, Grand Bassa County in Liberia. 

We want to express our deepest appreciation to everyone who continues to support the cause and our goal of building a school for children living in poverty.

Another Successful Supplies Drive!

Supplies ready to be shipped
Supplies ready to be shipped

After several very successful supplies drives, we shipped a consignment of school supplies and sanitary items to Liberia on May 25th. The supplies have arrived in Liberia safely and will be distributed among school children in need, especially children that were impacted by Ebola. Some of the items collected included, notebooks, pens/pencils, backpacks, hand sanitizers, disinfectants, soaps, deodorants, and toiletries.

Most of the items collected was made possible by employees of UTC Aerospace Systems, in Charlotte, NC, after a week long drive hosted by the African American Forum (AAF) group. We also want to thank all our supporters and volunteers for making this initiative a success and for the continued support.

Great News!

School children in West Point, Monrovia

After more than 6 months of schools closure caused by devastation of the Ebola virus crisis, school children have finally begun returning to school!

What does this mean to us?

During the heat of the Ebola virus outbreak all of our projects and activities in Liberia were put on hold. We immediately turned to supporting Ebola victims and survivors.  Smile Liberia can now return to providing much needed educational support to children in need. Already, we have partnered with several organizations that are helping to collect school supplies and sanitary items for children and schools benefiting from our programs.

Thanks for your continual support!
