Thanks to all of our donors, friends, and supporter for a successful school year. The school has closed and the students are awaiting their academic report which will be an issue in three weeks’ time. In the meantime, the administration is working very hard to meet up with the date set for the distribution for the students' report. The grade12th, grade 9th and grade 6th students are waiting for their West Africa Senior High School Certificate Examination (WASSCE) result for graduation which will be released at the end of this month. Our computer lab has been set up; currently, the teachers are undergoing training at the school to prepare them for the next academic year since most of the school work will be done online.

With the effort of our high working donors and supporters, we are making blocks on the school campus since we want to change the current school building with a new one. The exciting building has been there over fifty years and it was affected by the Liberian civil war, therefore, engineers have advised us to replace in the few years to come.

Our solar procurement progress took a very long time since the company was giving us a special design but finally they have and shipment has been done and will finally receive our shipment at the end of this month, and installation will be done and August by the time the students return to school in September we current in the school.

We want to request donors, friends and supporters please continue to support this initiative this will help many unfortunate kids to come to school. The improvement of the facility is of great importance the total cost of the construction is $460,000.00 United States Dollars but we are not waiting for that amount we are starting the work with any amount that is donated. We need twenty thousand 6” blocks and five thousand 8” block but we have produced over seven thousand pieces of blocks and the production continues this week continue the support to enable carry on this project. The school in Ghana has successful graduation for the k-2 and the project going well.

We are grateful to have you with such a great commitment to this project and the kids of Liberia and the world at large. Our major focus now is to see this building being constructed if not we will not have school for the kids in a few years from now. This year rainfall affected the school greatly water flow in the building in many of the classes. Thank you again and we appreciate your love and also look forward to feedback.

Our dream of a new Science Lab comes true. Over the year it has been the dream of the students, staff and the administration to the Carolyn A. Miller School to one own a science lab and that dream has finally been realized. We are grateful to our donor who saw the need and grants our request by taken such an action by providing the funding for this project.

We are very much grateful to GlobalGiving who is always there to promote and organize donations for our institution. We are so proud of you and we appreciate all of the good your organization continues to do over the year. One of our most important donors who donated the money to purchase the school building also donated over $10,000.00 to buy armchairs and tables for kids and we were able to undertake all of these projects this academic year.

The school was totally out of seats and it was a real struggle for our students which many of them could use the floor to sit for classes but now, our institution has 500 plus chairs for our students. Many thanks to our donors and GlobalGiving the level support we continue to get from you.

Thanks to all of our donors and we are proud to have and grateful to you and we appreciate your love and kindness toward our work and the children of Liberia.

We are preparing for the construction and improvement of the school starting this January, therefore, we will appreciate your donations and to help us move forward. 
It will cost us over $300,000.00 for the construction but we want to do it gradually we will start with any amount we get on hand and gradually we will have it completed.
 A donor can build a classroom and that classroom will be named after them. You can contribute to any room of your choice and be named after you or your entire family.
Many thanks to our donors and GlobalGiving for their support and we are grateful to you and we want you to know that you are making a difference.

We had a successful academic school year and the Kindergarten had a wonderful graduation which was held on July 24 and the grade 12 graduation will be on August 25, 2018. We are thankful to our donors and supporters for their continuous love and commitment to this institution and the children of Liberia. Finally, our science Lab equipment has arrived from India and the chairs are production and we hope that by the end of this month the production will be completed and transported to the school for the kids use. The school computer lab has been down for years due to many factors including a lot of electricity, computers breakdown etc. The kids  Pen Pals program with Laurence High School was very interesting and many kids are happy to join the project and we are grateful tot he Laurence High School family for their love and relationship with our school. 

We are so grateful to all of our supporters, donors, and friends who are making all of the sacrifices with their resources to support this project and you are playing a major role in the reconstruction of Liberia thank you very much.  

In remembrance of all the gifts we have received last academic school year, on behalf of our students, staff and the entire institution, we want to say thank you for your involvement by supporting this cause and this organization.  Thank you for investing in the future of the needy and the vulnerable kids of Liberia and Africa. Donations and gifts received were wonderful especially those toward the chairs and science lab equipment. The students have been out of seats and that has an embarrassing situation but many thanks to the entire GlobalGiving team for all their help and support by advertising our project and organizing all of our donations.


Many thanks again to our donors and supporters and as much as the financial aspect of this project is very important to us; we also take into consideration your ideas, your participation as well as your total involvement. Please feel free to contact us with your ideas, questions and please be aware that you are a major and a noble player of this project, therefore, you need to know how your resources have really been managed. We also need you for decision making since you are a shareholder in this project. The survival of this project is 100% dependent on you. Without your donation, we will have no means to run a free school for these kids.

We have been involving with renovation fo the building and this has cost us so much money to do and all of those funding came from you thank you. In our next report, we will present pictures of the current work ongoing. We need a bigger space for our science lab, therefore, we are seeking donors for the of construction that space. 

Thank you so much for supporting us and your commitment to this project to the Liberian kids. We highly appreciate all of the kindness and the love you continue to show. We want to say thank you, and you are a good team player, as you keep us in your loving heart. We want to hear your views and ideas as we build a team and a network with VAAFD and Carolyn A. Miller School in helping the poor kids of Liberia.

We have three most months to come to the end of the 2017/2018 school years we are having an excellence school year really. Our grade 12th students just completed the WSSCE examinations on April 20, 2108. We want to give our donors, supporters and sponsors for job well done and we want ask for continual to make this program a success.

We are happy to have you as our supporters and donors, the decision you have made is making a significance impact on the lives of the children of Liberia thank you very much.

Our institution continues to build a strong relationship with the Laurence High School family and we are really experiencing a major growth in this relationship. On April 11, 2018 our both schools had a live video chat and that it was really interesting and that has created a lot of bond between the two institutions. Interesting it was the first time for many of our kids do a live video chat and to interact directly with American kids.

We are so proud of the Laurence high school family for their love and great relationship we all continue to build over the years. The interesting thing about this program is that the both schools students have the opportunity to learn about each other country and cultures.

We want to thank our donors and supporters again especially those that continue to undertake special project in the school. We are so proud of you and we appreciate your love and your commitment to this project. We are thankful to our special donor who has paid for the entire science LAB equipment for the school we really appreciate you. Science LAB is now a major requirement for all schools in Liberia since Liberia has now joined others ECOWAS countries to write one common exam WSSCE.

The school is faced with a lot challenges right now there is no chair and desk for kids to sit for their learning and this has been a troubling to us but one of our special donors and supporters has promised to undertake this project and we so proud of her. She is always there for us giving her support and love to this program and the children of Liberia. We remain grateful to her and her entire family for their love and cares.

Others major challenges faced with the school are the reconstruct of school and qualify teachers. The current building being used to operate the school is an old existence building which built for dwelling and since we own it now we want to make it out of actual school building. But we want to do this development gradually, if anyone is touch to give us their support and contribution. No amount is small for this project $10.00 can buy a bag of cement, $240.00 can a truck of sand, $14.00 can buy 14 inches steel rod, $6000.00 can build entire classroom and print your family name on it. We will right away start this project as soon as donations start coming in so that we be able the kids will have a conducive learning environment. The issue with the qualified it is a major challenge that is facing the entire country, most of the teachers are not qualified therefore it is affecting educational system in the country. We want to gradually send our teachers to teacher training institutes in the south region to enable the institution get qualify teachers that will be able to prepare our students.

We are so thankful to them and all those who continue to give their love and support, you are making a difference and building the human resources of Liberia to reduce poverty which is a killer disease that kills millions without curse.

Please continue to give your support and love without you we will not have such a program to support these less fortunate kids.
