“EQUIPPING ONE GENERATION FOR THE NEXT”

See, today I appoint you over nations and kingdoms to uproot and tear down, to destroy and overthrow, to build and to plant.” Jeremiah 1:10

The typical Liberian student from kindergarten to University level has never used a textbook in the classroom. We will provide usage of textbooks in our “Study Hall” equipping students to do their homework assignments.

1 out of 20 students don’t know how to use a dictionary, table of contents or index of a book. We want to change that.

62% of Liberia’s population is under 24 years old. Of those 60% can read and write, yet only 10% can compose a basic letter. We want to make an incremental increase in those numbers using the proven methods of Laubach Reading Skills books.

The highest population bracket for Liberia is persons between the ages 0-14. Based on these numbers there will not a significant number of persons equipped to “Each One Teach One.’

Something has to give and based on our tremendous success over the last few years in the Barnersville community with the Young Scholars after school program, we believe we can help.

We have raised $1100 of our
