Our School in Buchanan, Help Liberia Foundation Community School, re-opened its doors last month for the 2020/2021 academic year, with both old and new students starting the new school year.
It is interesting to note that a total of one hundred fourteen (114) students, as well as ten (10) staffers, are starting the school year. The ten staffers include three (3) new teachers.
According to the calendar of events released by the Ministry of Education, the current school year will end on September 30, 2020.
However, many other school-age children are still not in school because of the financial constraints their parents face – because of poverty. It is sad!
Mr. Paul Yeenie Harry, the Chairman of the Board of the school, visited the kids and the teachers and spent some time with them last week. The kids are excited to be in school.
We are grateful to all of our sponsors and friends who continue to help the school. It is because of their continuous, selfless donations and assistance that we are able to give education to these kids from a poor background. We are all partners in progress. Let us not fail these kids for any reason whatsoever.
