This is Our Story
According to The United Nations International Children’s Emergency Fund (UNICEF), It is a struggle to get a good education in Liberia. The long-lasting effects of the 14-year civil war, compounded by the 2014 school closure due to the Ebola outbreak, and the Worldwide outbreak of Covid-19, had and still having a huge impact on the education system in Liberia.
Only a few schools remained open during the conflict, mainly in urban areas, leaving thousands of children out of school. The conflict also destroyed or damaged close to 60 percent of school buildings, including water and sanitation facilities which are key to keeping children, especially girls, in school. Teachers fled the country or took up other forms of employment.
In addition, the Ministry of Education, UNICEF and other partners teamed up and continue to repair or build new classrooms, train teachers, revise curricula and develop policies and plans for the education sector.
Yet, Liberia is significantly behind most other African countries in nearly all education statistics.
It has one of the world’s highest levels of out-school children, with an estimated 15 to 20 percent of 6–14-year-olds who are not in class. Just over a third of preschoolers have access to early childhood learning programmers and only 54 per cent of children complete primary education.
For those children who are enrolled in primary and secondary school, many are overage. In fact, the vast majority of Liberia’s students are older than the appropriate age for their grade and are therefore at high risk of dropping out. At present, overage enrollment is a consequence of late entry into grade one and lack of enforcement of the age-appropriate enrolment policy.
The lack of untrained teachers is yet another ripple effect from the civil war. Quality learning cannot take place in Liberian schools where 36 percent of primary teachers and 29 percent of secondary instructors are unqualified.
With this in mind we have decided to be part of the solution, in eructing a Vocational High School in Arthington, Montserrado County, Liberia.
Where students will be given the opportunity to a pathway to a career while in high school. This school will also be a boarding school where we will house students from 7th grade to 12grade.
Our main priority will be to prepare students academically and socially so that they are equipped for life after high school, even if they do not have the opportunity to go to a two- or four-years college, they will have a vocation pathway to help them success in life.
We will strife to provide a quality education to all students so that they can become productive and innovative problem- solvers of the future.
