Through the commitment of our friends and donors, we have had a successful school year again and we so appreciative to you with the level of kindness and love you continue to show. Be proud of yourself that you are making a difference in the lives of hundreds of poor kids in Liberia. You are playing a major in the reconstruction process of Liberia after a 14 years civil.

 As we are preparing for next academic school year we are again looking up to you for your full support. I want you know that without your kind donation and support we will not be able to free educational project for repatriated refugee kids and the venerable kids of Liberia who have suffered from the trauma of 14 years civil war that killed over 250,000 people. Our own way of rebuilding this part of the world is through the means of education that which you are supporting us to do. We really appreciate you and all of your support; thank you very much with all the financial hardship the world is facing but you are still committed to this cause.

For the 20011/2012 school year, there is so much challenges we have on hand right now that is, we are in of need desk for students. Most of the seats we used during the last school years have really damaged and the school does not have enough seats for the kids for this academic school year. We are in need of 50 pieces of student desks and the price for each desk is $26.00 which sums up to $1300.00. We are also setting up the computer Lab for this school year as you may know that computer is very essential to the world right, therefore the donation of computers we received during the last school year we want to have the kids using them this school year. We have been able to create space for the computer Lab and a space for a library as well but we do not have tables and chairs to place in the computers Lab, shares for the books, tables for reading, chairs for the kids to sit on therefore it is little difficult for us yet.

We do not have generator that will help us with power to run the computer lab. Since the civil upraising in Liberia, it has been difficult to restore electricity therefore more businesses and homes depend on generator to operate.

I want you to have the clear picture of the work we are doing here since you are now shareholders in this project. Please feel free to inquire whatever that is not clear to you and you need to understand. And are also interested your input that is your ideas as much as you are giving your support. Always remember that without your support these kids will not have a future and for true these future fully depend you.

We want to thank all of you and we also want to ask that you please continue to support this project that is making a great impact on the lives of the kids of this part of the world.  If we want to make the world a better place for all, we need to build the lives of other who are not in the position of helping themselves and this is what we are all doing together please invite your friends and relatives to be part of this good work you are doing.

We have come to the end of a successful school year and there has been a lot of progress been made to improvement in the future of the kids at the Carolyn A. Miller School. We want to remain grateful to all of our supporters, donors and friends who are making all of the sacrifices with the resources to support this project. We want say thank you very much and well done and finally the school year has come to an end. We were able to maintain 550 students with the donations you made to support for the refugee kids returning to Liberia and the vulnerable kids of Liberia.

During the school year we sent 25 grade 12th students for the West African Examination for the 2010/2011 school and we are proud to inform you that 18 students made a successful passed and we finally conducted their graduation on Friday June 30th, 2011. Thank you very much for bringing there for us through your kindness, love and support we have had a successful school year. In this light we want to say that we appreciate all of the support and will highly appreciate your suggestion and total involvement as a partner to this project.

In remembrance of all the gifts we have received for this academic school year, on behalf of our students, staff and the entire institution, we want to say thank you very much for supporting our cause by supporting this organization and by investing in the educational need of the vulnerable children of Liberia, Africa. We also received wonderful gifts from other interested people like donations of books and computers and we are so proud of you. In all, we want to be very much grateful to the entire Globalgiving team for the all of the help and support they are giving us by supporting and advertising our project and organizing all of the donations. These kids are enjoying free and quality education because of your tireless efforts. Without your support there can be no free school for the kids. We have set a goal to help support these kids in their struggle for education and a brighter future and with all of the promises we are making we depend on you. We therefore need your help! You are very special because you are making a difference. Without you this project could not exist, therefore you are so exceptional to the future of these kids and to all of us. We are also asking if each of you could commit to a recurring donation this year, which will be highly appreciated.

We are pleased to express our thanks and appreciation to all of our donors, friends, support and the entire Globalgiving team for their continual support and contribution to the future of the kids of Liberia. Sunday June 12, 2011 marked another historic event in the lives of the kids and the Carolyn A. Miller family. We were proud to conduct the graduation of the KG class and this was only possible because of people like who have committed yourself donating to this project. Without you we will never be able to run this project successfully.  We want to remain grateful to the Globalgiving family and all of our donors, friends and support who have made it possible for these kids to have a wonderful graduation.

We want to say many thanks the entire Global Giving team for their support. And also want to thank our donors and supporters who have given our project the fullest attention. The Matching Day, March 16, 2011, was really a successful day since people who love us and have the interest in what we are undertaking here committed putting in their resources. We are very proud of you and we want to use this opportunity to extend our heartiest appreciation to you all.

 We have only one more month to end the 2010/2011 school year. The 9th and 12th graders have completed the West African Examination and as well as the school exam and they are now awaiting graduation while the 9th graders are waiting to be promoted to senior high level. This semester will end next month (June) will bring the school year to a close. Thank you very much for bringing us to a successful school year.

In remembrance of all the gifts we have received for this academic school year, on behalf of our students, staff and the entire institution, we want to say thank you for supporting our cause by supporting this organization and by investing in the educational need of the vulnerable children of Liberia, Africa.

We also received wonderful gifts from other interested people like donations of books and computers. The students are so proud of those donations. 

The enrollment of the school still remains 550 students which includes both returned refugees and war affected kids in the community. These kids are enjoying quality education with the efforts of our tireless volunteers and staff. It is incredible to have you as partners and donors. We have set a goal to help support these kids in their struggle for education and a brighter future. We need your help!

Without your donation we will have no means to run a free school for these kids.

Our budget still remains $1700.00 per month and we have five more months remaining to end this academic school year 2010 and 2011 to achieve our goals for this school. 

 Thank you again for your support and commitment to this project, Africa, Liberia and the beneficiaries of this project. We highly appreciate you and your love. We think of you as good team players, 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.

 We continue to appreciate the effort of globgalgiving and all of our potential donors. Thank you very much for all of the love and commitment you have given to this project we are really proud of you.  You are making a difference, if just everyone on earth was thinking and acting like you, we could not have all of the troubles that are affecting the people on planet Earth.

The school year is already coming to a close and your donations have made it possible for us to come at this far. Now your donation can give a child a smile and a hope for a better future. The school has finally received the donation of books and computers from Kpazawalla Ballayan Foundation a US based organization made up of some Liberian in California. But it is difficult for the school and kids to use the computers since we do not have generator to provide electricity to the school. Liberia as a nation has been out of electricity since the war in 1990, the entire country use generator as mean the of power source. We are very much grateful for the donated items. These items will really help with learning of the kids. In order for the computers to be used, we need to buy a generator that may cost US $4000.00.  That will help for the use of the computers and printer. It has been very costly for us print papers for test and other communicational materials.

  The total enrolment of the school still remains at 550 students, and through your love we have been able to register the 12th, 9th and 6th graders to sit for the West African Examination year. This will be the school second time participating in that exam “WAEC”. We are still faced with numerous challenges to make this program a success. I think due to the global financial crisis donation has been very much slow but we are happy that we are still together as a team and shareholders. We right now owed teachers for closed to two month salaries. And it has left with four more months to complete the academic school year successfully. Currently the school operational budget still remains $1700 a month - $1440 goes towards teachers’ salaries, $225 toward rental of the building, and the rest towards food for the free daily meal that the school provides to every student each day. It has been difficult for us to raise the said amount. I want to encourage you to please continue your support through globalgivig to enable our project to be a success. You have done a lot and you have been much committed making this project keeps alive without your support and donation we cannot have this project running.

 

Your donation gives a child a smile.
