Eradicating Poverty Through Education in Liberia

This is our original school that is based in Rehab City View Community, Lower Johnsonville, Monrovia, Liberia. Our academic program in Liberia to transform the whole country started from right here at the Heart of Grace Elementary, Junior and senior High School. The school was founded in 2008 and it had 1500 students pre-Ebola crisis but currently has about 900 students after the Ebola outbreak.

Our students at this school just took their 1st Marking Period Test and concluded everything on Monday early this week April 13, 2015

 Many thanks to all of you for praying, helping and supporting us during one of our most terrifying times of the Ebola Epidemic in our country.

We are very glad and grateful to God that we are able to be back to school again after this deadly Ebola attack in the country. Please pray for us that God will help our remaining 600 students to come back to school as soon as possible.

 Please spread the word by tagging your friends, family members and others. Thanks and God bless you!11100873_837265389679618_509765305_n 11124147_837265123012978_2011182066_n DSCN8421 DSCN8435 DSCN8438 DSCN8468 DSCN8469 DSCN8471 DSCN8473 DSCN8474 DSCN8475 IMG_0019 IMG_0021 IMG_0079 IMG_0099 IMG_0100 IMG_9990

Praise God! Re-opening Schools on February 2, 2015 in Liberia

10815855_857073987666625_1805966411_nTwo weeks ago, we the Liberian Government announced the reopening schools throughout the country on February 2, 2015. This is a very positive news for all of us because all of the schools in Liberia were shutdown as a result of the deadly Ebola outbreak in the country and beyond.

The Ebola new case rates in Liberia are dramatically showing down nationwide. We praise God and thank all of you sincerely for your prayers, time, services, resources and financial contribution in helping us fight this killer disease out of our world. This is a very encouraging news that I am personally excited about!

Our children have been sitting at home for too, too long. It is indeed time to return to school and for the teachers and everybody to return to the classrooms.

The reopening of our schools comes with a huge financial challenge for us in Liberia with such of short notice from the government. Most of the parents of these children in our schools and communities have not been working at all throughout the Ebola Epidemic. Therefore, they have not been making any money to be able to even pay for their children’s basic registration fees and provide for school supplies and uniforms for their own children. We also have to address the overwhelming needs of orphans in our various schools first from the Liberian Civil War and now from the Ebola Crisis.

Please keep us in your prayers that God will provide in helping us meet the needs of these struggling children.

The same young Liberian generation that survived the 14 years brutal civil war causing unbearable devastation of human lives and properties, no hope and opportunity, now has to deal with the repercussion of this deadly Ebola Epidemic.

Thanks a lot for your time and God bless!
