The first day of a new school year in Liberia 2012/2013 year, was an amazing day in the life of the Carolyn A. Miller students.
For children everywhere, education is the opportunity to learn and grow, and it creates a path to realizing dreams.
By supporting local students who never had the dream of going to school is like miracle in life of many kids in Liberia. With the support of Vision Awake Africa for Development and GlobalGiving are making education counts.
With the tireless effort of globalgiving and our donors we are able to have over 600 students benefiting from free and quality education.
Vision Awake Africa For Development aims to strengthen isolated communities and reducing poverty through education. Through the participation and involvement of community members - education and development officials, school leadership, parents, community leaders, elders, clan chiefs and others - VAAFD is helping build a strong civil society, with the health and well-being of children at the heart.
VAAFD aims are to provide quality education to all kids who need it to prepare them for tomorrow leadership. In so doing, it is addressing and improving the education need of the less fortunate kids to have greater access to education.
We are so grateful to Dione Miller the niece of MS. Carolyn A. Miller who visited our school a year ago and was able to donated money to help purchased books for the kids.
Our special thanks to go to our donors who over the years have been committed to this project with their resources. Our special donor who has had the greatest commitment, she donated money to purchase the school land and she has also donated another amount to start the school construction project which is our most important need for now.
We are so proud of the globalgiving team for their commitment to this project and it is our hope that we all will continue to work together for the future of the needed children of Liberia and the rest of the world.
We are still paying $225.00 as rent for and this is getting very difficult for us and since there is always a need for a need for a renovation each year.
Teachers’ salaries, student’s supplies and school supplies still remain a difficult situation for us. We will appreciate of our donors can make a minimum contribution toward our school construction will really be helpful.
We will also appreciate if donors can be able to be able to do a follow up on the fund they give us to know if their funds have been used for the purpose for which it has been donated for.
