The Liberian Education system is still recovering from the Ebola Epidemic and a 14-year civil war. According to USAID, the percentage of primary age students attending primary grades is only 44 percent. This project is boosting education by providing strategically needed resources - scholarships, uniforms, school supplies, school furniture, classrooms. This makes a huge difference - helping to keep kids in school and enhancing the quality of education.
Recent crises in Liberia devastated the nation in general and the education system in particular. This led to dire situations such as impoverishment, barren classrooms, and inadequate school facilities. Families are unable to send their kids to school. School facilities are in bad repair with an adequate number of desks and chairs. Learning is far from optimal. This fragile situation has long-term consequences and is in need of urgent attention.
This project is helping to enhance education in Liberia through the targeted provision of supporting infrastructure and resources. This includes school furniture, scholarships, books, school supplies, uniforms, building repair, new classrooms, teacher salary supplements, etc. This ensures that the kids can stay in school and effectively learn - towards becoming the future leaders of tomorrow
This project ensuring that underprivileged children get a decent education. It is transforming lives and providing opportunities for growth, and contribution to national development. By upgrading the quality of education offered in schools, we are 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.
