Book Tree Children’s Library is open! We have accomplished a lot, but we still have so much to do! Adding books and programs will be an ongoing process, but we are so excited that this part of our vision is beginning to take shape.
Through the construction of a school in the Liberian township of Clay-Ashland, we will be providing children from poor, rural and disadvantaged communities with access to a high-quality, affordable education. Our educational facility will provide low-cost primary education focusing on children aged 5 to 14 years old (kindergarten to grade 8). This will be a holistic facility that will also include a cafeteria, providing nutritious food to children, and a library that gives children access to a variety of books to promote a reading culture and thus further improve literacy.
Ri’ayah foundation is a foundation created by Liberians for Liberians. Ri’ayah means care and this foundation is here for the outcome, not the income. The majority of our staff and board is made up of Liberians therefore we have a personal, vested interest in the well-being and progress of Liberia.
The sewing machines are here! Local youth were thrilled as we opened the doors of the Splendid Sewing School, giving economically deprived youth the opportunity to equip themselves with sewing skills and nurture their creativity to produce unique, affordable, much-needed items for impoverished communities.
