Q. Why Liberia?
A. A Nigerian missionary priest ministered in St. Augustine’s parish for a year, and he communicated many things about Africa during his stay. Some parishioners from local churches were moved into action. Subsequently a 20′ x 8′ container was sent to Liberia in December 2006. The container has been followed up with this Help a Child Africa charity to make a difference by helping to send children to school.
Q. What made you choose education and not food, water or healthcare?
A. Having visited those in need in Liberia, whilst food is scarce and healthcare is poor, education was seen as something that could make a difference for a better future for all.
The children are the future of countries like Liberia, offering a chance for stability, economic growth, improved governance, and a better life for themselves, their families and their communities. Yet they will never be able to reach their full potential without an education.
