Additional Desks Fixed for Kids

Help Liberia Foundation Community School, our school located in Buchanan City, has fixed additional fifteen (15) desks for the kids attending it.

The fixing of the additional desks is in fulfilment of our desire to provide seats for all of the students in our school vis-à-vis the huge influx of kids into the school this academic year.

We are especially grateful to our Swedish friends and sponsors who are helping us through the effort of Lena and Anders to help these kids get a better future.

A total of fifteen (15) new desks at the cost of US$15 per desk were fixed for the kids last week. The fixing of the desks came as a result of the shortage of seats vis-à-vis the influx of kids this school year.

At present, there are nearly one hundred forty (140) kids in the school, which is more than what we have had in recent years.

In spite of the fifteen new desks, we still need to purchase additional ten to fifteen desks, as the desks are not enough for the kids. In some cases, there are more kids sharing one desk than required.

On that day, both old and new students, as well as old and new staffers, met at the school to begin the new school year. Everyone was excited to have been part of the new day of school after a two-month vacation.

The exterior of the school building has been painted blue, instead of its usual white color, and the windows and the base of the building have been painted cherry red, while the interior maintains its white color. New school year; new look.

As we plan to begin the 2018/2019 school year, one of the worrisome situations is the constant rain, which may affect students’ and, in some places, teachers’ attendance at the beginning of the academic year.

Our thanks to all those who continue to help us to maintain the school which is serving underprivileged children in Buchanan.
