Help Liberia Foundation Community School has officially commenced its 2011/2012 academic year.
The school year, which began on Monday, 5 September, saw the coming together of old and new students and old and new teachers. Although classes began on September 5, orientation was held on Friday, September 2, opening the year-long interactions that will go on between the kids and the staff.
At the start of the school year in early September, there were 104 students. Now, there are 140 kids, and there are signs that many will come in later. The school operates kindergarten and primary divisions.
This is the sixth year of the school’s existence. It was established in 2005 to help provide education to the underprivileged children in the community, and the school continues to help in that direction, as scores of children and their parents depend on the school for their education and, therefore, their future.
Our profound gratitude to all those who are helping or have helped us to provide the kind of assistance we are providing for the kids to go to school in a society where illiteracy rate is very high.
