The Liberian education system is emerging from a period of civil unrest, compounded by the Ebola virus outbreak which closed many schools. This had led to dire situations such as impoverishment, barren classrooms, and inadequate school facilities. According to USAID.gov, the percentage of primary age students attending primary grades is only 44%. Without funding, Liberian children in need can't attend school. Without supplies, they risk an inadequate education.
The goal of this project is the provision of a strong and enriched education through schools in Liberia, with a focus on rural schools. This includes providing the supporting infrastructure and resources to ensure a quality education such as school furniture, scholarships, books, and school supplies, uniforms, building repair, new classrooms, teacher salary supplements etc. This will create an ideal educational experience enabling Liberia's children to become the leaders of tomorrow.
This project will help ensure that underprivileged children will get a decent education, transforming their lives and providing opportunities for growth, and contribution to national development. By upgrading the quality of education offered in schools, we will be helping to transform communities and the entire nation. Investing in children's education is critical for a nation's development. By aiding education, we lay the groundwork for future economic development.
