Welcome to Our School, Liberia. We build futures
Our School was founded in January 2006 in Duazon, Margibi County, Liberia, to provide underprivileged children access to a great education.
After 14 years of civil war, Liberia is one of the poorest countries in the world. Education is a luxury that most Liberians will never have. Instead of focusing on which primary school is best, which middle school might have more after school sports, or which high school offers cutting-edge college-prep courses, Liberians fight a daily battle to find food that will feed family members and ways to pay for medical care. Because basic needs are not being met, priorities in Liberia are different. Children are sent to sell items at market instead of getting to go to school - an opporunity so many of us take for granted.
Our school gives Liberian children the opportunity of a lifetime. With an education, these kids will have a much greater chance of a promising future and fulfilling life.
Volunteer with us!
Think all children deserve a great education? Love traveling to new places? Want to know what life is like in a small Liberian community? We're always excited to welcome new people, and our kids can't wait to meet you!
We’ve previously welcomed a diverse array of volunteers who have helped us train teachers, teach kids, and make a lasting impact in Liberia. As the locals say, ‘it’s not easy’, but if you come to Duazon, you’ll never really leave.
