The education system has many hurdles to overcome related to rebuilding and recovery from Civil War, poor national finances, poor infrastructure, the Ebola epidemic and, most recently, COVID 19 pandemic.
Mission to Liberia has provided funds to purchase desks, chairs, books, and other essential learning materials.
Thanks to our partner schools, we have built a school and provided private latrines for boys and girls. This is just a beginning…we can do so much more, but only with your help. If you would like your donation earmarked to be spent on education, just tell us and you will receive a complete, detailed report regarding exactly how your donation was spent.
I experienced a most amazing day! First, we went to the Deaf and Mute School and the pictures below will demonstrate the need at this school. Yes, the material need is great, but the spirit isn't missing a thing! That sign you see us doing means, "I love you." These children are funny, mischievous, and just wonderful to be around. Although they can't speak or hear, they seem happy and, again, their spirit is amazing. Many children live at the school, but others commute. Andrew is the teacher...he and his wife live at the school. They are so committed. The surroundings are deplorable, yet he stays because he's committed to these "disposable" children. If it wasn't for this school, these children would not survive. I just can't say enough about this school.....I actually had FUN there!! We brought them 2 50 LB bags of rice and they were very excited.
The school of the Deaf and Mute has been in existence for 15 years. The children are being taught sound languages and other basic fundamentals that can support them in day to day activities. MTL has been supporting the school for the past two years. We have been assisting with infrastructure renovations, hand pump construction, food and school supplies etc.
- The school is requesting skills training programs for the students. Specifically in tailoring, soap making, banking, and cosmetology. If you would like to donate to this cause, please write us a note with your donation and we will make sure it goes to a student's training program.
