WHY LIBERIA?

CAN'S PRESENTATION 2017 (dragged) 8.jpg

Liberia is a country in West Africa which was founded in the 1800s, established, colonized, and controlled by citizens of the United States and ex-Caribbean slaves as a colony for former African American slaves and their free black descendants. The constitution and system of government of Liberia were modeled on that of the United States. Liberia's first constitution was written by Professor Simeon Greenleaf of Harvard Law School in 1847. Liberia’s population is 4.5 million which is about the size of the state of Ohio. 

 

     

     LIBERIA, A NATION FACE WITH OVERWHELMING CHALLENGES

    • Second poorest country in the world.
    • 85% unemployment rate.
    • $100 per month minimum wage.
    • 1 in 4 Liberian children can read a sentence.
    • lowest enrollment rate of children in school in the world.
    • 60% Literacy rate.
    • Fewer than 40% of children complete primary education.   Liberia has been majorly affected by the recent civil wars (1989-1996), government mismanagement, and the recent Ebola breakout in 2014. Click here to learn more history of Liberia.

    THE IMPACT

    Breaking the Cycle of Poverty Through Education in Liberia.

     

    We have successfully built 14 schools in 6 counties of Liberia. We are presently educating over 3,000 underserved and vulnerable children in Liberia. There are 200 employees on payroll nationwide. Within the past 10 years, Change Agent Network has graduated more than 2000 students, many of whom have become meaningful contributors to society. One such student is Jerolimic Piah, the former Presidential Press Secretary to former President Ellen Johnson Sirleaf of Liberia. Click here to learn more

    The Liberian Youth Orchestra Project will bring string music to Liberian children. There are no string music programs in Liberia. We want to change this reality. Julie McGhee will be partnering with Change Agent Network (CAN) to bring hope and a future to underserved children through a music education. The Change Agent Network (CAN) team is extremely excited to be able to offer this opportunity to their students. The LYO project will begin in one school, Alexandra A. Andrews Academy in Gbarnga, Bong County, Central Liberia. There are currently 600 students K-12 in this school. The LYO project will begin with 25-50 students grades 4-9 the first year. Julie McGhee will be teaching on the ground in Liberia as well as live-stream lessons/classes from here in the United States. The goal is to launch this program in September of 2018. CLICK HERE TO LEARN MORE

     

    Eric Willise Wowoh’s new book, Return Of A Refugee, shows firsthand how trauma and rejection turns a young African boy into a man committed to sacrificing his everything to transform the lives of others in a hurting world. This is the author’s emotional true-life story. It shows how he turned his tears, pains and struggles into a pathway of positive change, hope and opportunity in part for those who hurt and almost kill him. In spite of the fact that he had lived his entire life going through unimaginable atrocities at the hands of fellow human beings, he genuinely still believes in humanity, goodwill and God.
