Dear Project Supporters,

Your support is helping underprivileged children in Liberia stay in school, effectively learn, and get a decent education.  Unfortunately, all the schools are currently closed in Liberia as they are in many other places in the world due to the COVID-19 health epidemic.   

As schools start to reopen, Liberrian students will need school supplies and school books, which your support will continue to provide. We know that investing in children's education is critical for a nation's development.

  According to UNICEF-

It is a struggle to get a good education in Liberia.  Liberia is significantly behind most other African countries in nearly all education statistics.

It has one of the world's highest levels of out-school children, with an estimated 15 to 20 percent of 6–14 year-olds who are not in class. Just over a third of preschoolers have access to early childhood learning programs and only 54 percent of children complete primary education.

Providing children with a quality education is fundamental to Liberia’s progress and prosperity.

Educating these future leaders in Liberia is giving them the ability to get out of poverty. We believe that education and training are transforming agents that are critical to human capacity building and to enhance the national capacity development.  Our vision for the future is to expand beyond the basic educational needs of the youths by providing high-quality vocational training whereby they can become fruitful citizens of Liberia and the world.

 We thank you for everything that you are doing for the future leaders in Liberia;  your ongoing support will help with ongoing student and teacher needs in Liberia. We encourage you to start a monthly recurring donation here.  Even a few dollars a month will go a long way.  Please also share this with your contacts and invite them to consider supporting this ongoing project.  

 

If you have any questions, please feel free to email us at GlobalGiving@developafrica.org.

 

With great appreciation,

Amy & the Develop Africa Team

Dear Project Supporters,

Your support is helping underprivileged children in Liberia stay in school, effectively learn, and get a decent education. 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.

One of the students your support is helping in Liberia is Alex, pictured above. Alex is only four, but he already loves going to school and enjoys writing and spelling. He also enjoys playing football and he helps his mom wash dishes.

Liberia's future leaders are today's children and youth. We thank you for everything that you are doing; your support will help with ongoing student and teacher needs in Liberia. We encourage you to start a monthly recurring donation here. Even a few dollars a month will go a long way.

Dear Project Supporters,

The new school year has begun and students who would not have been able to afford school on their own were able to go to school thanks to you.  Your generous ongoing support is greatly appreciated!   The school set up new goals for the 2019-2020 school year based on information gathered from the 2018-2019 school year.

According to the report from the 2018-2019 school year, 92 percent of pupils K1 – K2 successfully completed the course requirements and were promoted to the next class; and 90 percent of nursery pupils were promoted to K-1. A small percentage of pupils failed their classes while a few dropped out at the beginning of the school year.

The goal this school year is to have a 100 percent retention rate. In order to accomplish this, the principal stated that the school is devising a program that would target the most vulnerable pupils to help provide them with the resources they need to stay in school.

With regard to the small percentage of pupils failing classes, the school is also working on devising a program that would help these pupils succeed this school year. As with the retention rate, BEST, Inc. will also work closely with the staff to improve these pupils' academic performance. An after- school tutoring program in-home or at the school will aid immensely in this effort.

Liberia's future leaders are today's children and youth.  We thank you for everything that you are doing;  your ongoing support will help with ongoing student and teacher needs in Liberia. We encourage you to start a monthly recurring donation here.  Even a few dollars a month will go a long way.  Please also share this with your contacts and invite them to consider supporting this ongoing project.

Dear project supporters,

Students and teachers are looking forward to a new school year.  Students are excited to play and learn with their friends.  These students would not be able to go to school without your continued support. Most of these children live in extreme poverty making school impossible without help from generous supporters like YOU!

  According to UNICEF-

It is a struggle to get a good education in Liberia. The long-lasting effects of a 14-year civil war, compounded by the 2014 school closure due to the Ebola outbreak, had a huge impact on the education system.

Since the end of the conflict, significant progress has taken place in the education sector. In 2015, close to 1.4 million children were registered in pre-primary, primary and high school. In addition, the Ministry of Education, UNICEF, and other partners teamed up and continue to repair or build new classrooms, train teachers, revise curricula and develop policies and plans for the education sector.

Yet, Liberia is significantly behind most other African countries in nearly all education statistics.

It has one of the world's highest levels of out-school children, with an estimated 15 to 20 percent of 6–14 year-olds who are not in class. Just over a third of preschoolers have access to early childhood learning programs and only 54 percent of children complete primary education.

Providing children with a quality education is fundamental to Liberia’s progress and prosperity.

Africa's future leaders are today's children and youth, and Liberia is not an exception.  We thank you for everything that you are doing for the future leaders in Liberia;  your ongoing support will help with ongoing student and teacher needs in Liberia. We encourage you to start a monthly recurring donation here.  Even a few dollars a month will go a long way.  Please also share this with your contacts and invite them to consider supporting this ongoing project.

Dear Project Supporters, 

Your support helped provide the children at Golden Eagle Christian Academy in Liberia with much-needed school supplies. The children and staff were delighted to receive school supplies.  The head of staff said-

Thanks to Develop Africa for putting smiles on the faces of the kids of the Golden Eagles Christian Academy with the wonderful surprise gift of school supplies. We faithfully distributed all the items to all the students.

Once again we are grateful to God for you,  May God remember these gifts and bountifully bless everything your hands touch. We love you,  we love you,  we love you in Jesus name, Amen.

We thank you for everything that you are doing for the future leaders in Liberia;  your ongoing support will help with ongoing needs and projects in Liberia. We encourage you to start a monthly recurring donation here.  Even a few dollars a month will go a long way.  Please also share this with your contacts and invite them to consider supporting this ongoing project.
