The School Adoption Project is Smile Liberia’s primary means of implementing its mission in Liberia. The project was launched in 2010 and is based on research conducted on the educational sector in Liberia and our own ongoing research into the needs of individual schools in meeting standard academic statuses. Funding in the amount of approximately $300,000.00 is needed for the total implementation of the project to cover staff and infrastructure development, direct student spending and basic community engagement.
Meet the students at Children Hope Community School, Smile Liberia's adopted school.

We are happy to report the first 4 beneficiaries of the Send 'em to School project.
Project "Send 'em to School" is Smile Liberia's newest effort to ensure that every child in the West Point community obtains an education. During a recent visit to the West Point area, we discovered that there were more school-aged children out of school than those that are in school. This is due to abject poverty in this community.
