Our school has introduced the use of identification (ID) cards by the children attending it. The kids started using the ID cards recently.
Since its establishment six years ago, it is the first time that the kids have begun using identification cards, and it will, henceforth, be part of the their regular dress code.
The kids were not only happy to take their pictures for the ID cards, they were also excited to receive the finished product from the school. They happily and proudly displayed them on their uniforms daily.
We extend special thanks to all those who are assisting us to do what we are doing for the kids in our school.
World Food Program, WFP, has donated some dishes to our school in Buchanan, Help Liberia Foundation Community School.
The donated items include eating spoons, cooking spoons, plates, cups and a tub. The organization also gave some salt for the program.
The administration of the school expressed appreciation to the officials and staff of the World Food Program and appealed to them to continue assisting the school in its effort to provide hot meals for the kids.
It is important to point out that WFP usually donates food ration to us to enhance our school’s daily hot meal program. Although the food ration may not be much, it is regular – comes monthly. Food items given include burger wheat, beans, and vegetable oil, which are used to cook for the children daily, an arrangement that also helps to keep them in school, as most of them come from homes where only one meal is eaten per day.
Meanwhile, we are appealing to other individuals and institutions of good will to help us with funds or some other food items to augment our feeding program. We would like to buy fish and meat and prepare good soups for the kids. If possible, we would also like to start cooking rice for them.
The Government of the Republic of Liberia, through the Ministry of Education, has donated some educational materials/supplies to Help Liberia Foundation Community School, our school in Buchanan.
The materials comprise reams of sheets, teachers’ plan books, teachers’ roll books, chalk, pens, pencils, a calculator and other items.
The Registrar, Elwood Lincoln, receiving the items on behalf of the school, thanked the Ministry of Education for including our school among the schools receiving some form of assistance from the government, and promised the officials that the supplies will be used for their intended purpose.
