About 20 years ago, my dream to provide educational opportunities for girls ignited a passion in me that has only grown brighter each year. I came to the realization that social change usually takes longer to bear fruit, so I made a commitment to remain a provider of girls education in Liberia for the long haul. Over the years, this journey has enabled girls in difficult circumstances and in dire poverty to be afforded a chance to be educated. This opportunity has brought optimism to each beneficiary and their families. My message of hope to them has not changed, it is that: “EDUCATION IS A LIGHT FOR ONE’S PATH AND A KEY THAT WILL OPEN ALL DOORS”. As we continue this journey, l extend my sincere gratitude to all our SPONSORS who have made our dreams come true. I will like to use this platform to ask others to join us in our national call for Women’s Empowerment. Indeed you too can make a difference- one person at a time.
