Amidst the numerous challenges faced by parents in providing some basic needs for their children attending Liberian Schools, Safe Education, and its partner have identified with several school going kids in Margibi and Montserrado Counties.
The Organization and partner also provided clothes and footwear (shoes & sandals) to nursery, kindergarten and elementary students at the Philadelphia Community School and the Kids International School System in Kakata Margibi County and other schools in Montserrado respectively.
Safe Education was also able to give medical equipment to some Community Clinics including the D.H Luo Community Clinic and share with newborn babies that were in need in Montserrado County.
The President of Safe Education, Debbah Greene in an interview with this our reporter in Kakata on Thursday, April 18, 2019, said the gesture is the Organization way of giving back to the Communities what it received from partners and donors who thought it wise to be a help and blessing to the Organization.
“Because one of our mission statements is to lobby for funding and donation from in and around to be able to come and give back to students that are in need, so when we received those items as well as our gust that came we thought it wise to go to all those schools so we can be able to talk to them one on one and give them those items they are actually in need of” he revealed.
Mr. Greene recounted that the Organization has plans to go to other schools in the various Counties but it requires funding and donation.
He, however, assured the beneficiaries and other Institutions across Liberia that the more funding and donation come in the more Counties it will move into and the more schools will be engaged based on their needs.
He expressed the need for more support and aid from donors or people who believe in what the Organization is doing in order to be able to reach to as many people as possible and go to other Counties to be a blessing to lots of schools, communities, and clinics as well.
For her part, Mrs. Giftens George; a US-based Liberian and partner to Safe Education who provided the items said she was honored having an opportunity to give back to the communities and the kids.
“Seeing the expression of these kids it makes me I want to do more even want to go way above and beyond to see what more I can be able to do” she maintained.
According to Mrs. George, she has the dream of having such an opportunity where she can be able to reach out to people who are in need..
Mrs. George who is a professional nurse and humanitarian said she hopes to work along with the teachers and principals of various schools to educate the students about hygiene.
She used the occasion to thank her colleagues and partners who made available the items and at the same time called on them to do more donation to be able to motivate owners of schools and address the needs of those who are in need.
Meanwhile, the Principal of the Kids International School System has lauded Safe Education and its partner for the gesture and said this is the first of its kind for her school to receive outside support for the students.
Madam Ruth B. Tartee intoned that the items donated will motivate her students to put in more time and remain in school. Madam Tartee who said her school lack support called on other philanthropists, the government of Liberia and other national and international partners to come to her aid.
