MOVIE TRAILER OF OUR FOUNDER ERIC WOWOH'S NEW BOOK - RETURN OF A REFUGEE

 

THE STORY OF GRACE AND REDEMPTION OF ERIC WOWOH

Eric Willise Wowoh challenges readers of his book to reexamine their worldview of God’s role and their role in ending urgent, dangerous issues happening in their one-world and on their watch.

Eric Willise Wowoh’s new book, Return Of A Refugee, ($16.99, paperback, 9781498485517; $32.99, dust jacket, 9781498485524; $8.99, e-book, 9781498485531) 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.

CAN TRANSFORMING LIBERIA THROUGH EDUCATION

CAN'S SCHOOL AND COMMUNITY DEVELOPMENT MODEL

STEP 1

CAN provides the expertise in training the locals to build, operate and financially sustain their own school.

STEP 2

Global partners or friends of Liberia make a one-time high impact donation to purchase building materials and startup capital to launch the school.

STEP 3

The local community donates the school land, volunteer their time and services to build, oversee and locally sustain their own school.

CAN's SELF-SUSTAINING SCHOOL MODEL

The school is self-sustained through our daily low cost school fess payment plan. This plan uses a car issued to every student and parent to track daily educational costs. The vast majority of parents and students live on a day-to-day basis, this gives them a simplified, easy and durable flat rate payment plan. The payment card creates 100% transparency and accountability between the school administration, parents, guardians and students.  Click here for more info: http://www.canintl.org/education-for-liberia/
