One positive aspect associated with the operation of our school in Buchanan City, Grand Bassa County, is that the school has committed and loving teachers who are willing to help the kids obtain their education.
The kids whom we accept and help at the school are kids who come from poor background or whose parents are unemployed, and we are proud and happy that we have caring and committed teachers who are willing, ready and able to teach the kids.
Although our teachers are not receiving huge salaries at the end of the month because of limited resources, they still give themselves willingly to help the kids get their education, as they are aware that people’s lives can be changed though education, and children can have a better future as a result of education.
In a P-T.A meeting held at the school in May of this year, a female parent stood up and said, “I want to thank the teachers in this school because since my two children entered Help Liberia Foundation Community School, they have improved in their lessons. I am seeing the difference between this school and the first school my children attended. I am encouraging the teachers to please continue the good work.”
Indeed, we are proud of our teachers for helping us to develop these kids for a better future.
Special thanks and appreciation go to all of our Swedish friends and sponsors who are contributing some funds through Lena Thorne Marner and Anders Marner every month to help with teachers’ salary payment.
