Our tuition assistance goal is simple. Each year, we vet 100 students through a rigorous application and interview process. We cover these students tuition payments to ensure them that someone cares, even from afar. We vowed to support 100 honor roll students each year because our founder is a living example of what can happen when dedicated youths are encouraged and given the opportunity to go to school.
YesLiberia has been blessed because you have stood with us throughout this journey. Last year people like you supported our efforts to successfully pay tuition for 100 students in Africa. Why is this important to us?
Some years ago, YesLiberia’s founder, Jallah, was one of the children we serve in Africa today. He lived the lives they currently experience daily. He can relate to growing up in a country where there were no free public schools. Everyone had to pay for everything– from tuition to gym outfits; from their own textbooks to the donuts they had for lunch. Jallah was kicked out of school several times because his family couldn’t afford tuition payments during and after the Liberian civil wars.
Imagine having the passion and dedication to learn at such a youthful age, yet lack less than $250 to stay in school each year. Because of that imagination and empathy, donations from global citizens like you kept our founder in school in Africa over 20yrs ago. He’s forever grateful to God and to everyone who supported his tuition payments while he was a teenager in Africa. But for him, being grateful isn’t enough. He wanted to pay it forward to those in dire positions he vividly remembers. That’s the essence of YesLiberia—a youth empowerment approach that focuses on creating opportunities for students' talents to thrive. Your donation today would signify your partnership to help support these students.
