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.

The new school year has begun with a lot of excitements at the Carolyn A. Miller School in Paynesville near Monrovia.

 The school has a penpal program with Laurence High School in California and through that program, one of the students of that school and his parent saw the need to donate Modern musical instrument to the of students CAMHS.

And this is so important to the kids and The kids they are so grateful to Sam,Tara and Kids for Joy for their good gesture and they are so happy and eager to start using these instruments but there is no teacher so they are seeking for one.

The Laurence high School Family is also looking into supporting the School Science Lab which will be a great opportunity for our science. They have already made some donation toward that we really appreciate their gesture.

The school does not have a science and this is something that is really the learning of the students especially for the sciences like Physic, Biology and chemistry.

Many thanks to all of you that continue to give your heart to the kids in our world, there is so much you are given that will ever be remember that no one erase it on earth.

 We want to thank all of our donors and supporters their continual supports to the children of Liberia and the Carolyn A. Miller School family. The kids are so happy since they now owned the building for themselves.

The building and the land was bought by our special donors who have taken this institution into their heart and have so much love for the children of Liberia. These donors have never stopped their love and concern for what we do here in support of the less fortunate children in Liberia.

We are so thankful to them and all those who continue to give their love and support, you are making a difference and building humanity to reduce poverty which is a killer disease that 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.

We are thankful to GlobalGiving and all of our donors who continue to give their support to our project in Liberia to help those kids in Liberia in need. Since our organization return to Liberia we have run this program in a rental building that which has been very costly for us but with the help of GlobalGiving and our special donors, we have finally bought the building. And has solely comes a property for the organization, the school and the children and it has cut of the rent payment. We want to thank donors so much for their love, concern and generosity toward the children of Liberia.

We have to the closer school year and we are preparing for the graduation of our students on August 5 at the Good Shepherd Episcopal Church in Paynesville. We appreciate the opportunity given to us to acquired the building, we been able to carried on the major work on the building by changing one side of the main building roof, tiled the floors, changed all the oldwindows to iron bars and that has given more vacillation to the classrooms for the learning of the children. Since the building has now been acquired and now owned by us, it is now our desire to develop it and make it decent for our students that which will give them a good learning environment. We want to reconstruct the annex, create better classrooms, better library, science lap, computer lap and a cafeteria for the students. This building was constructed as a dwelling place now we want to change it to standard classrooms.

We want to remain grateful to GlobalGiving our beloved donors for their love and supports they continue to us, if it has not been for their commitment to this project we couldn’t have been able to continue this project. Most of the donors we had for the past 8 years have stopped their supports but this family has stood with us and they give their support to all of the projects we run. This family is so loving and so caring; they support the entire project we run to support the less fortunate children in this part of the world. Many thanks to you, we appreciate your love, we also love you and we appreciate every support you continue to us, you are now our family and parents of these kids we work with.

We are seeking a family, individual, foundation and group to help us build a classroom, library, cafeteria, computer lab, science lab etc to be named after their family, entity or after them. Any interest donor can please contact our team for more detail. The cost to construct one classroom to completion according to the contractor is cost around $ 10,000.00. We are already making block with the left over funding from the donation made for the purchased of the building. Any interested donor don’t have to donor the whole amount as one it can be donated in installment till it comes to completion but if a donor also want to donate all as once, we will appreciate it.  

Thank you again and can be proud of yourself because you are making a difference.

Marthaline is 7 years old; she joined our school in 2015, in the Nursery. She is now in the K-I and she always has the highest mark in her class.  Marthaline lives with her grandmother Mary in the Omega area community where the United States Government had her Omega Navigation Station Tower for many years that is about 15 minutes drive from the Carolyn A. Miller School. Her mother is a farmer who lives in Tappita Nimba Country, Northern Liberia.

Marthaline is a very smart kind and desire education the most, before the end of the school year 2016 one of our Board members Francis visited the school and he brought gifts for students who were doing well the in their lessons as mean of motivation, after the distribution, Marthaline walked to him and said  “I want you support me”.  After their conversation, Francis called me to know who the child was and I never had full details on her but I got to her teacher and helped me to learn more about marthaline. I asked Marthaline what you want Francis to support you for? She said “I want to be educated; my mother did not go to school and I see our president Ellen Johnson Sirleaf is strong because she is educated” that was really amazing for me to hear such a young child mentioned their desire for education and not candy.  Our registrar visited Marthaline’s house where she met the grandmother and her cousins that also live with the grandmother. The grandmother said that marthaline has lived with her since she was three years of age and she has seen her mother only once in her life time since she lived very far from where Marthaline lives.  We want to thank Francis for pledging his support for this child education and also we to want use this opportunity to thank the Globalgiving team and all of our supporters and donors for their numerous supports they continue to give the children of Liberia and the world. We may like to talk about other reports but the details with come in our next report. Our 9th and 12th grades will be sitting for the West Africa Examination in May 2017, thank you so much for being there for them.

We are proud of you, you are making a difference.

The 2016/2017 school year has had an interesting event taking place at CAMES, the students have been enjoying the taste of entertainment. It has been the wish of the students to own musical instrument to be able to building their talents and the opportunity has finally come. A student at Laurence High School from California donated some musical instrument to the school to help the kids at CAMES to get excess to music. What makes this interesting most is that the kids who donated these items family got full involved till we finally received those musical instrument that the kids at CAMES are enjoying today.

Kids in Liberia do not have the opportunity to build their talent when they watch television and see other kids in other parts of the world with those opportunities they wish to have that too but again, schools here do not provide it for them.

We continue to appreciate all of friends, donors and supporters for their continue love and sacrifices they continue to make for the kids of Liberia and CAMES get a brighter future. Our biggest thanks go to Globalgiving who is the master planner for all of the opportunities these kids receive today.

One of our students James who father is vision impaired said that if the institution can help to build his foundation in music he will use that change the lives in his community and if the possibility exist, he will make impart on the Liberia and the world. His both parents are vision impaired and he wants to use music to be a great help to his family.  We want to appreciate all those who part toke in the Globalgiving matching fund to donate to our organization, thank you ever so much and you are making a difference, you protecting the future of kids who never knew that they could ever go to school.

The school will be starting her 3rd period exam next week and we are getting some challenges from our land lord he wants to sell the building that we are using for the school for $25,000.00 United States Dollars and we do not have the money buy and this is really embarrassing we are therefore asking all of our supports, donors and friends to kids help you us be able to buy this building so that the kids will remain in school. Our land lord said that if we are interested to buy can pay by three installments, first installment will be 50% of the said amount and other 50% can be paid evenly.  Thank you for all of the supports you continue to give our organization and the kids of Liberia and we hope that you will be our guest one day to be able to interact with those you continue to support.

Thank you so much for the support you are making a difference and together as a team, we can achieve much.

Again, many thank to our donors, supporters and friends all whose are giving their love and resources to support this project.  We also want to thank Globalgiving for their support as well.
