"The Campaign for the Liberian Learning Center" by Empowerment Squared
You can make a difference! For thousands of communities and children in Liberia, a safe space to gather, learn, innovate and study is merely a dream. There is not a single public library in the entire country, there is one textbook for every 27 students, only 33% of kids get to experience any form of consistent learning activity, only 22% of public and community schools have proper seats, literacy rate in Liberia is still among the lowest in the world and further devastation by the just ended Ebola crisis is still being evaluated. We believe that, together with your help, we can change the story. With a minimum donation of $300 per individual from 1000 people to the "Campaign for the Liberian Learning Center," we will be able to fully complete the first phase of the project which includes construction and operation of what will house the only dedicated public library and co - working space in the entire country.
The Center will be home to the first public library in Liberia since the war ended in 2003.
You can support the campaign through tax deductible donations in Canada and the United States as we set out to impact the lives of over 130,000 people in Liberia. The Center will be a state of the art facility which will also be home to a co - working space for social innovation, business and social enterprise incubation center, maker space and desktop publishing center. Your donation allows us to empower people, connect solutions and create partnerships around the world.
