In 2018, upon my graduation from the African Leadership Academy in South Africa, I co-founded The Mohammed Alie Education Foundation. Over the past three years, along with my colleague Mohamed A Bah, I have been running this organization while being a full-time student at the University of Rochester in the United States. Through this foundation, we provide quality education for less fortunate Liberians including orphans, people with disabilities and illiterate adults. Under our “Self Help Program”, we run a fully functioning school in one of Monrovia’s densely populated yet most resource-constrained communities - New Port Street. Over the past few years, over 250 students have matriculated in our free basic computer training program. These are mostly high school and college dropouts. Our adult literacy program currently serves 203 adults who didn’t have access to education as children.
As a nonprofit foundation, our programming has been severely affected by the COVID-19 pandemic. Our ranks of partners and sponsors who have been donating to our programs and supporting our mission have shrunk. In addition, our only building that houses our offices and classrooms is in deplorable condition and with the nearing of the rainy season, we expect the condition to worsen. We are therefore reaching out to request for your donation to supplement our effort to renovate our classrooms and administrative block. We are also seeking support to purchase stationery items for our students, the majority of whom are either orphans or come from single parents households. Your donation to this campaign helps take a child from the street to the classroom. Your donation gives another child the opportunity to learn, grow and impact the world positively. Please consider donating and sharing this campaign within your network.
