Challenge

Due to a lack of means, many children in Liberia do not attend school at all. The Liberian education system is emerging from a prolonged and brutally destructive period of civil unrest. Liberia is significantly behind most other countries in the African region in nearly all education statistics. Many families and schools in Liberia do not have the ability to ensure that their children receive a quality education.

Solution

This project will help Marthline with her school-related expenses including tuition, books, school supplies, uniforms, and other related expenses so that she is able to go to school this year.

Long-Term Impact

Underprivileged children will get a decent education - transforming their lives and providing opportunities for growth, and contribution to national development. By upgrading the quality of education offered in schools, we will be helping to transform communities and the entire nation. Investing in child development is critical for human development and we cannot talk about economic growth without talking about healthy and literate communities.
