The More Than Me Academy, founded in 2013, is tuition-free. More importantly, it is free of the ‘sex-for-grades’ culture prevalent in Liberian schools. We provide girls with a safe, stable learning environment that cares for their personal welfare, and empowers them with skills and knowledge.
Realizing how big a difference a safe, stable environment makes on our girls’ academic performance, we intend to broaden our vision beyond the More Than Me Academy. The new (S)HE Matters initiative seeks to establish standards of Safety, Health, Education, and Monitoring in every school, throughout Liberia. We aim to create learning environments free of toxic stress for every Liberian child.
By invitation of Liberia’s Education Minister we will be working with the government to train teachers, build curriculum, and establish a sustainable model of education for the nation’s future leaders.
