Dear Friend of Restore Hope: Liberia,
We are so grateful that you chose to help Liberian children through Restore Hope: Liberia.
We're excited to share our Annual Impact Report with you today, which shows HOW we put your generous contribution to use. Here are some highlights:
What stands out to you in our latest report? We'd love to hear your feedback. Don't hesitate to email me directly at email@example.com.
We know there are many excellent organizations out there and many worthy causes to support. Thank you for investing in the children of Liberia.
The start of a new year always brings hope and optimism for good things ahead.
There is much to look forward to this year with our work in Liberia. And, I want to thank you for joining us this past year. Together, we made meaningful impact in children’s lives in Liberia.
We had college students graduate nursing programs. All of our supported grade school students were in school and moving up in their classes.
We were able to consistently monitor the health of the children in the program, ensuring continuity of care for those with chronic illness and to make timely referrals for those with malaria and other preventable but deadly illnesses.
We provided group therapy for mothers experiencing depression to ensure they can give their children the needed care and attention to thrive.
We invested in community-initiated income generating projects to support livelihoods for mother's who are working hard to provide opportunitites for their children.
Thank you for being a part of this work.
Please reach out to me personally if you’d like to learn more. I’d be delighted to meet you and hear what brought you to this work and what you’re most interested in supporting.
The summer was filled with activity as Restore Hope: Liberia's team was busy doing home visits for children, meeting with parents and caregivers, providing group therapy for mothers, and keeping the library open for children's use.
RHL held a celebration for the kids on July 26th, which is Liberia's Indepence Day. This year marks 175 years of independence. Indeed, Liberia was the first country on the African continent to gain its independece. We were delighted to see the children celebrate their heritage proudly and enthusiastically.
We are also so very proud of two college graduates, Anna Morris and Bezalee Aaron. Both students have been supported academically by RHL during their grade school years. They were both awarded college scholarships and attended Lofa County Community College. They have bright futures ahead!
To further support children's education, Restore Hope partnered with Books2Smiles to send some culturally appropriate early readers to the library in Kolahun. We have an expanding collection of school books and culturally relevant story books to cultivate the love and habit of reading in children and young people in and around Kolahun.
The school year is commencing and this year RHL is supporting 34 elementary students, 11 junior high students, 25 high schoolers, and 25 college students! Because even public schools in Liberia are not free, your donations are financing their education. Thank you for making this important investment in the future!
I look forward to sharing more good news with you throughout the year.
With much gratitude,
We don't know exactly how or why you decided to invest in giving Liberian children healthcare, education and hope. Yet, we are eternally grateful.
We thought you would want to hear what we have been up to within the past two months. Here is a summary of activities surrounding our work in Liberia (March-April, 2022):
84% of Liberians live in extreme poverty and over 50% of the population is under the age of 18. Providing healthcare and education to children is fundamental to overcoming poverty. Disadvantaged children-orphaned, disabled, and chronically ill are more likely to escape poverty if they are healthy and educated.
Hope, then, lies in you. When you make a donation to Restore Hope as you have done, you are moving the mission forward. As you can see, your donation has been put to action. When you underwrite these efforts, you are giving children the childhood they deserve. You address the problems facing the children in Kolahun with long-term, sustainable solutions.
Thank you, again, for your support. The women of Liberia sing this song often, called "Life Can Change". It is a song of triumph, and a song that is only sung when there is hope: https://vimeo.com/686825984
