OUR FIRST COUNTRY SITE- LIBERIA,WEST AFRICA
Liberia is a country in recovery after 15 years of Civil War . With little infrastructure, remarkably low literacy rates, very high unemployment rates, and a preponderance of young people, a number of whom are orphans, Liberia needs your help. Liberia is a country of less than 3.5 million people, similar in size to the State of Ohio. The majority of Liberia’s schools and libraries are located in or near by the capital Monrovia, making it extremely difficult for children living in the outer city to reach these resources. The civil war led to the vast devastation of most schools and libraries in Liberia.
MEHMEH TOWN SCHOOL PROJECT-BREWERVILLE LIBERIA.
While difficult to discuss our first school story, we share part of our story to offer you hope. We recently went back, and partnered with a new village. Our goal is to see the new village using what they already have to provide their children with EDUCATIONAL OPPORTUNITIES, help uplift economic and social status with locally applicable solutions that last.
TROYAH TOWN SCHOOL PROJECT
OUR FIRST SCHOOL
On July 21st, 2015 A New Dimension of Hope opened the doors to the first school. Over 100 students, ages 5 to 9, are now enrolled in school! At the opening ceremony the NDHope team was fortunate enough to be joined by the leaders of the village, THINKLiberia founder Rosana Schaack, and Nobel Peace Prize Laureate Leymah Gbowee! The school had 6 full time teachers, one administrative staff, and an incredible amount of support from all those in Liberia. The school opening brought hope and our dream of helping kids through education was finally embraced by a country that was once in the midst of civil war. But that hope was recently impacted by demolition of our school
