Children's Vacation School at Potters House CME in Liberia

With respect to the support and mission of the Pan-Methodist Children in Poverty Campaign, the Potter’s House CME Church, Margibi district, took the initiative of opening a vacation school for children. Many of these children are loitering around the community; others are children whose parents could not afford to send them to school last semester. The vacation school is established to avoid getting these children into trouble through waywardness, rape, and gambling. The school is also committed to preparing their minds for the next academic school year.

We started with 17 children but now we have close to 40 students with no fees attached. We are appealing to members of our church to help us raise funds to help compensate those needing help but who cannot afford to pay. More to that, we are asking for readers to help us, especially with one printer and one used computer in order to produce more materials for the kids. A friend from the Ministry of Education was able to help us the last time with some books. Presently, we are using Rev. Christian N. Keller’s laptop and a used printer to do our work. We also intend to have a reading room to help improve reading and writing skills. Please keep us in your prayers.

Welcome!

Reading the Campaign booklet is a first step for becoming familiar with this initiative. It offers information and resources to encourage your activism. It can be viewed and downloaded at The Campaign page.

We hope that you will contribute information about your work with children. Descriptions of your ministries will be helpful to others who want to deepen their involvement to care for children in poverty.

You can influence the Campaign’s effectiveness.  Be involved.  Offer your ideas.  Encourage others.

Trusting in God, we dare to envision a world in which every child experiences love, care, and hope. Together we can be the difference in the lives of children in poverty.
