Help build a school in remote Gyaboland/Grand Kru County, Liberia, West Africa
Known as the land of “the forgotten people”, Gyaboland, also known as Garraway has been the last region to recover from the Liberian civil wars and is the farthest region from the country’s capital. In Grand Kru County, roads are few, unpaved and prone to washout. For this reason, we have set an ambitious goal to complete a project before the 2021 rainy season.
Help us to build a school for 325 children in recovering Gyaboland/Grand Kru County Liberia, West Africa. Our nonprofit, Gyabolanders-US, Inc, is in its second phase of building a durable cement-block early childhood schoolhouse for grades K-2.
Bring our young students out of the rain!
Representatives of Gyabolanders-US recently visited the Samuel G. Mooney Kindergarten/Elementary School, the site of our future new school building, and observed students striving to learn under distressing conditions. Books, papers, and even the children themselves were soaked from rain falling through the deteriorating roof. One of our members noted that the existing structure wasn’t suitable for livestock, let alone small children. These mental images have been a catalyst for our fundraising campaign and our mantra: Bring our students out of the rain! United Nations statistics show the Gyaboland/Grand Kru County region to have the highest poverty rate in Liberia. We believe poverty can be reduced by giving children the opportunity and access to education. A tax deductible donation of any amount will help to create safe dry classrooms. Please help us to “bring our students out of the rain!”
