Brothers and Sisters,
For some time I have had a dream to build a school in Liberia, a country I lived in for nearly twenty years. In a third-world country having an education truly changes lives. It decreases poverty, hunger and promotes well-being. Last year my dream became a reality when, by the grace of God and a few generous hearts, I was able to pay for the foundation of the building and complete 80% of the brickwork. Thank you, to those who contributed! However, there is still so much work to be done and I desperately need your help. The building needs a roof, plumbing, and other important features in order to open. Please consider donating to this project. It’s difficult for me to convey what life is like in Liberia. I can only tell you that having a school like this will make such a difference for so many children. Please help me build this school. Below are three ways to contribute.
