Detroit, Michigan (PRWEB) August 22, 2013
Liberian parents hoping to send their children to school need to be able to pay $250 to $350 per child per year. For most Liberians, this is impossible.
The Africa Development Group has committed to raising $100,000 this year to support critical change for the people of Liberia, West Africa. One of the major projects these donations will fund is a new not-for-profit school that will provide free education to Liberian children.
"Education is one of the real keys to changing the situation in Liberia," says ADG director Kojo Darden. "It's how we create a generation prepared to meet all of Liberia's critical needs."
"We have to teach the children to read so they become doctors that serve their community. We have to teach them math so they can run the country. This is about true sustainability."
The first one thousand donors who give $100 or more will have their gift commemorated with a plaque displayed prominently in the school.
Building the new school is just one of the projects the Africa Development Group is working on. The group is also raising funds to support critical medical services and sustainability projects.
"Our sisters and brothers in Liberia West Africa are survivors of a 14-year civil war, which left them without food to eat, medical attention, clothing, shelter and clean drinking water-the basic needs of life," says ADG director Kojo Darden. "They desperately need our help."
The Africa Development Group is an all volunteer organization founded by the Shrines of the Black Madonna of the Pan-African Orthodox Christian Church and operating in partnership with the Pan-African Orthodox Christian Church in Liberia.
The Africa Development Group accepts donations on its website africandevelopmentgroup.org and by mail.
