Smile Liberia Awarded $30,000 LD to Beneficiaries

Children Hope Community School
Children Hope Community School

In the midst of land negotiation for our School Adoption Project, Smile Liberia recently donated $30,000 Liberian Dollars (LD) to 9 beneficiaries of our scholarship program. Funds will be used to provide full-year tuition, uniforms and school supplies for the beneficiaries.

The donation drew the attention of local news media in Liberia: http://www.thenewslib.com/news/1327-smile-liberia-awards-ld-30-000-scholarships-to-children.

As a related development, Smile Liberia is researching an alternate location for the School Building project, amidst news of possible demolition and relocation of the West Point community by the Liberian government. We are now looking at building the school in the Brewerville area, in the outskirts of Monrovia. Brewerville is believed to be the location where residents of West Point will be relocated. Stay tuned for updates.
