High School project details and progress

CWF is currently building a high school in a remote and isolated region of Liberia where many villages are suffering from large numbers of orphaned children whose parents have died either due to the civil war or due to curable illnesses.

The nearest high school is three days walk away and as these children are cared for by relatives who cannot afford to meet their educational needs, they have no choice but to become farmers. However, the school being built by CWF will provide education to children from eleven villages and will also serve as a vocational center where over 3,000 former child soldiers will receive various training including negotiation and mediation skills.
