Committed to Improving Lives Through Christian Education

Work is underway to bring rigorous secondary education to an impoverished and educationally deprived district in Southeast Liberia. For decades, young people in this district could only hope to achieve a 6th grade education; now there is new hope. Enthusiastic and committed local leaders have donated 700 acres of land of which a portion will be used for a new school that will serve up to 500 7th - 12th grade students. A classic Christian secondary curriculum will prepare students for college and vocational trades. Estimated cost for the school is $130,000.00. Agricultural projects have also begun; a health clinic will follow.
