This comes like a dream, we are thankful to GlobalGiving, our supporters, and friends for their donations toward the future of the children of Liberia. After many years of operation of primary, elementary, Junior and secondary school, we realized that after graduation most of our still went back to street selling and have not been able to go back to school to acquire higher education to be able play a major role in the society.

Over the past years our students have been performing greatly in the West Africa Senior Secondary Certificate Examination (WASSCE) and as such, we have to considered and enrolling fourteen 14 of them to enrolled at the University to be trained in education so that when they graduate they can come back to their school to help prepare other students coming after them. We are grateful to the contribution of our friends who provided this support to get them started with their University career.

In appreciation for the opportunity provided to these young men and women, Titus wrote the below gratitude “Firstly, I am profoundly grateful to God for life and for how far He has brought me. In addition, I want to be grateful to Vision Awake Africa For Development for such a wonderful opportunity given to me and students. This is actually a life changing opportunity and a privilege, which I never anticipated nor dream to obtain. Seeing myself in the University today, especially Cuttington University, makes me and my family proud. I have been wondering a few years back about when and how am I going to enter University after high school but today, I am counted among one of the high ranking Universities in Liberia. Education is my passion and I want to be an educator and a mentor. I want to be a participant in the development of my country and the world through education and mentorship. I want to pass on knowledge to transform and impact lives. I want to show the light so that others can find the way”.

The Cuttington University is one of the best Universities in the Republic of Liberia that has produced for the Liberia outstanding students, and this a great opportunity for these less fortunate students to enroll. We want to say again thank you very much for the support and we are still looking to you to kindly continue supporting these kids to enable them meet their educational goal. If Liberia can become a changed and a great nation it will depend on these kids therefore I want to encourage you to continue to support them to achieve their goals. A credit at Cuttinton University is thirty-five United States Dollars $35.00, registration is $290.00 therefore a student doing 18 credit will need $920.00 for tuition per semester, we are asking you to kindly help support these to achieve their educational goals and be able to be a help in the rebuilding Liberia into better society and the Carolyn A. Miller High School.

Thank you, we appreciate your effort and your love.

It's been exciting news at Carolyn A Miller High School, with new School construction projects being developed and graduation activities. 

The New School construction is a gateway and a new opportunity for many less privileged kids in Monsterrado County, especially in the Johnsonville Community, there has been great work ongoing at the Johnsonville project site, and the school construction started two years ago and a lot has been done. The School graduated twenty students and their performance at the West Senior Secondary Certificate Examination was great. This examination is conducted by all the Anglophone countries in West Africa. 

All of our students made very good passes and based on their performance we have decided to find a scholarship to enroll at the university. Over the years after our students graduate from high school, they do not have an opportunity to enroll at a university to acquire higher education. This will be a major milestone in their educational goal since most of the students we graduate with end up at the RedLight doing street selling.  

Currently, we have sent sixteen students to the Cuttington University entrance and all of them made a pass, and an admission package has been given to them, now it is our hope that they will enroll. 

We are grateful to our donors, friends, supporters, and GlobalGiving for the great work they continue to do by supporting our projects and giving the future to the children of Liberia and the world. 

The current school construction project ongoing in Johnsonville is great and it's costly.  We are asking you to please make a donation to this project, without your donations we cannot continue this project. Every donation you make will directly into this project. We are asking for your kind donation. You, your family, and your organization can build a classroom, computer lab, science lab, library, student center, bathroom, cafeteria, basketball court, or any restrooms or offices and have your name printed on it. 

The school made a trip to the central Liberia City called  Gbarrnga where they series of sporting activities with the  AGM and SDA schools in Bong County, the students at CAMHS drew with the AGM school two out and defeated the SDA school four-goal to two and our students put out an excellent performance.

If all goes well with the schedule, next week our students and all Junior and High students will be sitting WASSCE exams, and students have been busy revising at school.

School construction is our priority at the moment and we want to see into it that we complete the first part.  Donation to this project is a big priority to us and we are solely depending on you for your kind donation. With all the level of work being done, all donations have come directly from an individual who has given her commitment to this project and we believe that if we can have to join her to make a team, we will make a lot of progress on this project. 

Thanks to everyone who has supported VAAFD so far, you are helping create opportunities for Liberia's poorest young people and making a difference.

The construction of our New School has begun in Johnsonville outside Monrovia. This institution will be a Medical High School where less privileged children in society will have the opportunity to learn more of the sciences especially in the area of Biology, Chemistry and Physic. By the time a student graduates, they will have some specialized skills and they will be able to provide first Aids treatment, and also be able to play a major in the prevention of any future epidemic outbreak, or any recurring of Ebola which has been experienced by Liberia, of course COVID-19 is no exception which has taken over the entire globe.

Couple of years ago, Cori discussed a new educational program called "Medical high School". She explained to me about the usefulness of this special educational program for the children of Liberia and Liberia as a whole. Since I mentioned it to me I have been thinking about it and I read it online and I found it interesting and it could be one of the best answers to the Liberia problem. During the Ebola outbreak in West Africa Liberia carried the highest death rate this was due to the lack of health workers and we learned many listens from that since our organization Vision Awake Africa for Development worked directly in the fight of the Ebola controlling communities with success stories. 

We are using an entire acre of land for the construction, currently we have dug the entire backside of the building and inserted 96 steel pillars, cashed the foundation and the block laying has been ongoing.

We are so thankful to GlobalGiving and our special donor who continue to make a Minimize donation toward this project on a monthly basis; we say you are making a difference. We want to encourage other donor to kindly join our effort $10.00 can buy bag of cement, $15.00 can buy one 5/8 steel rod, $220.00 can buy a truck of sand and $550.00 can buy a truck of crushed rock please need your help us moving forward with this project without your support, we are unable to move forward.

We have just the second period and the kids are back in school and the school is preparing for the graduation of the last year seniors since the WASSCE result is finally here and the school did well therefore all of our students that sat for the examination will be graduating.

We want to thank you again for the great job you are doing and it is our hope that we will continue to work together for the betterment of our world.
