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/
