We want to thank our sponsors, donors, friends, and supporters for standing at this point in time with all their love and we want to let you know that we are doing fine and keeping safe.

Liberia like any other country in the world has been hit by the COVID-19 and due to that, schools and all social gatherings have been shut down by the government in order to keep the health rules. It has been a real challenge for our students, teachers, and the entire community in turn of food and basic social need.

We are dealing with students who are vulnerable 80% of our students are self-supported, they do street selling after school to be able to survive and this time really critical them as well our teachers who are paid between $50-150.00 per month.

We are institution was to provide for each of the teachers a bag of 25kg rice to enable them to have small food for them and their family while on lockdown.

In the meantime, we are in partnership with Mentor without Border providing for 16 students computer skills in programming, mobile app development, website designing, and graphic design. Before the lockdown, they all were meeting at the school to do their study but they all are now staying in their various homes to do their studies as the health protocol required.

Their mentors meet them every Saturday and they give them the entire week to study. The government has announced the reopening of all students sitting for the West Africa Senior Secondary Examination in August this year.

We are currently undertaking a renovation and preparing the school campus for the reopening of school this month. We seeking support for our Internet connectivity to enable our students to be able to go online to their study, do research, school assignments, and the CC camera at the school which only works with internet connectivity.

We will need $150.00 as a flat rate for internet data every month to help us smoothly run ITC programs. We want to ask our donors to kindly help us in this direction. We want to thank you very much for all of your help, support, and endless love for the children of Liberia.

You are doing a great job and making a great difference and we are so proud of you and we want to say that we appreciate your love.

Many thanks to all of our donors, supporters and our friend for your continual to the children of Liberia. We are now in the second semester of the school year and we have couple of months for the grade 12th and grade to be sitting for the West Africa Examination.

 In the main time we are pleased to bring you the over view of the induction ceremony of president of the student council government 2019/2020.

The induction ceremonies are usually held in schools to officially dedicate power to responsibilities to students who are elected to serve their colleague for the year under the banner of student’s council leadership/ government. This year 2019/2020 Mss. Alicia won the election on the ticket of the student’s unification party (SUP) as president.

The induction ceremony officially gives she and her officers power and this was held on Friday February 14, 2020 on the campus of the Carolyn A. Miller High School.

The occasion was graced by the presence of important personalities such the chairman of the Bassa Town Community who served as the key note speaker Mr. Akoi. In his addressed note, he advised the students on the need to make maximum use of the facilities being provided by the school. He cautioned them on hard work and seriousness, and he also that laziness is eating out the core values of the Liberian Educational system and encourage them to work harder to secure the future of Liberia from the hands of corrupt leadership.

Mrs. Christian who inducted Miss. Boimah into office admonished her to be focused and committed in the discharge of her duties of the office given to her.

The program also witnessed the launching of a fund drive of $5,000.00 United States Dollars Library project.

The chief launcher Mrs. Binda donated the sum of $4,000.00 Liberian Dollars and she promised to make a future donation toward the project.

The co-launcher also donated the sum of $10,000.00 Liberian Dollars to the project, and there were numerous pledges made from attendants at the program including institutions that were invited to grace the program.

Miss. Boimah in the speak she promised to work with her fellow students, and focus her attention on the following areas, such as working with her leadership to encourage other students especially girls who have not make education as priority to enroll secure a future for themselves, lobby with the administration to organize extra classes to help slow learners. She also promised with the support from her friends and administration to conserved work.

And also said that under her leadership press club will be established to expose students to reading in public socially, she promised to promote unity among students and create opportunities void of partiality.

The program ended with massive display of impressive dancing performance by the school dance crew.

We also want to inform our donors, supporters and friends that our school construction project is starting this year, someone illegally constructed on the property and the Land Authority is working to remove them and as soon as that is done our work will begin. The cost of the project is over $400,000 and we have made thousands of blocks and we will need sand, rock, steel rod and workmanship to enable us carry on the work. We will appreciate any amount that you can donate to help us move on with this project.

Thank you again and we are grateful to you and your family, you are making a difference.

We are grateful to Globalgiving, our partners, supporters and donors for the support they continue to give our organization over the years. We want to inform you that we have finally completed the installation of the solar system at the school, the computer lap  is running, and the science lab are now a great benefit to the students at the Carolyn A. Miller School. 

Both staffs and students are effectively taking advantage of this great opportunity given them to have a complete access to computer education, school don’t to go through the stress of allocating resources to buy fuel and run a generator that is very expensive and unhealthy. 

We are grateful for this opportunity great given us, it hasn’t been easy for us to do our school work; every school work we did in the past was always expensive to be done and being delayed since we had to either take out outside the campus to café to be done or run a generator. 

We really want to thank the donor and his family for his farsightedness and commitment to our project and the children of Liberia.

Our school music class has also getting started since we now have current at the school and they can be able to use their instruments and more time to practice. We got the donation of the musical instruments a couple of years ago from a student from the Laurence School in California but it has really been difficult for us to use them since we never had current. 

Many thanks again to globalgiving, our donors, supporters, and friends for their continual support to our project.

We also want to inform you we need an internet connection for the solar system it is use to monitor the system and we also need the Internet connection for the student resource center that will help them with their studies as well as teachers research.

We have been making cement blocks for the school project and we are hoping to get it started this dry season therefore we are asking for your support and donations. 

Thank you again and we are proud of you, you are making a difference if it hadn't been for you we couldn't have been able to continue this work. We are asking for support to enable us to undertake and complete our school construction project. 

 

The current building we are using is an old building and it was originally constructed for dwelling not for school therefore we want to formalize it as a school building for the kids.

Thank you and we are happy that we have your support.

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.
