Morris first day at school

It is about two weeks since the school year begins and the kids are happy that they are back to school. We want to thank you GlobalGiving and all of our donors for the love and the support they continue to give these kids. We have been working over time to see into it that the school have a successful school year again. Many parts of the building had been leaking and that has been challenging to have thing done since it require a lot of cash but we have been able to do 75% of that but the rain is a big problem for the couple of the class rooms.


There are many new faces that entered but among them is Morris a young man whose father is a blind man. Before the school year begins I received a couple of calls from Morris' father that I never knew but he requested to meet me but I was out of Monrovia. I came back to Monrovia after couple of weeks and I returned John called and I made an appointment for him to meet. We met with John and Morris upon the appointment set and he requested me to help take charge of his son's education since he is blind and he cannot afford to sponsor his child to school. But the interesting thing is that John is a student in another school. I told him that our school was free for returning refugee kids and other vulnerable kids in Liberia so his son was qualified to attend.


Morris is a KG2 student and heis  happy to be in school. Morris is a 12 years old young man. His father wants him to acquire education so that he can become someone better in the future to help him as well. We are starting the computer program for the kids for this academic year and it requires a lot of resources since we need to buy a generator and will always have to it fuel.

 We want to appreciate all of our loving and wonderful supporters and donors again and which to hear from your comments you are making a difference without you we will not be able to run a free school for these kids.
