We need your help

For the past 4 years, Educate Liberia Foundation has been quietly working behind the scene in Liberia by providing educational scholarship to the less privileged Liberian children, youths, and adults. We see a need to establish an office in Liberia. We are counting on your generous support to help us achieve our goal. No amount donated is too small.

Our goal is to raise $50,000 by the June 2012. We will gladly accept donations of any amount including your unwanted pennies.

To learn about other ways, you can make a donation, please visit our donations page. Thanks.

Welcome to Educate Liberia Foundation

Welcome to the official website of Educate Liberia Foundation, a non-profit organization based in the United States but operates in Liberia. ELF is dedicated to promoting education in post war Liberia by providing scholarship to the less fortunate children and youths of Liberia. Educate Liberia Foundation (ELF) views education as one of the many ways to rebuild Liberia after 14 years of civil war. We also believe that education is the basic right of every Liberian child, which has unfortunately become an unaffordable luxury for many.

The Liberian civil war has been classified as one of the most brutal civil wars to have surfaced in the history of West Africa. It erupted on Christmas Eve of 1989 and officially ended in 2003. The Liberian civil war left many debilitating effects. It left the country with 85% of its work force unemployed and an illiteracy rate of 80% and not to mention the thousands of orphans left with little or no support.

The task of rebuilding Liberia is an enormous challenge to every peace loving Liberian and Friends of Liberia. Restoration to a damaged economy and public image, maintaining stability of a volatile political climate filled with war criminals maybe the top priorities for most but the task of educating the children of Liberia for a brighter future is an ultimate challenge to everyone.

Thanks for visiting our site and please continue to visit as we count upon your support.

May God bless you.

About Liberia

Flag of Liberia

Liberia is the oldest independent nation in Africa. It is located on the west coast of Africa. Founded in the early 1800s, it served as the haven where freed Negro slaves were repatriated by the US government and the American Colonization Society.

In 1989, Liberia experienced a terrible civil war which claimed the lives of over a quarter million people and damaged most of the country's infrastructure. In 2005, the Liberian civil war ended and a new election brought in power the first female head of state in Africa in the person of Madam Ellen Johnson Sirleaf. Since her election, there has been gradual progress to restore most the damaged infrastructure but such progress has been marred by rampart corruption by some government officials, high rates of armed robberies, prostitution, illiteracy, and unemployment.
