|Children Hope Community School|
Meet the students at Children Hope Community School, Smile Liberia's adopted school.
Smile Liberia will work with Children Hope Community School over the next five years (or during the course of the School Adoption Project). Smile Liberia intends to transform Children Hope into a modernized educational institution for elementary learning. The "New" Children Hope is a West Point community project that will accommodate 500 children from kindergarten to 6th grade. The school will also have a computer lab, a library, and an infirmary.
The "new" Children Hope will serve as a community center for the West Point community and will provide vocational learning opportunities for adults and youth that are not of school age. Children Hope will also accommodate disadvantaged children in the West Point community...
Here are the boys and girls that currently attend Children Hope
Smile Liberia recently awarded 5 scholarships to students at Children Hope. These students outperformed the rest of the students during the first 2 academic terms for the 2011/2012 school years.
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.
