As we enter the final week of 2015, I want to thank you very much for supporting the African Dream Academy (ADA) this past year. We are grateful to you for so many reasons.
With your support:
ADA was able to reopen its doors on September 14, 2015, to 401 returning students in Grades Pre-K – Sixth. The students are extremely grateful to be able to attend classes at ADA once again for a full academic year.
ADA negotiated new annual contracts with its staff of 45, keeping classes small with no more than 30 students per section. It was also able to add more teaching materials and equipment to enrich its curriculum and the learning experience of its students.
ADA replaced the roof of its multi-purpose building, which had been heavily damaged in a torrential storm in October 2015.
And, thanks to your gifts, the ADA Foundation was able to ship a donated, full-size, 64-passenger school bus to ADA from the United States, which arrived on December 1. Now students from 3 to 13 can ride safely to and from school each day protected from heavy traffic and Liberia’s extreme weather conditions.
As we move into 2016, the ADA Foundation is making plans to meet the ever- increasing costs to educate and care for ADA students so that they can become the educated leaders of tomorrow’s Liberia. Currently, a gift of $500 annually will provide an education, uniforms, and a hot, nutritious meal to each student. We hope that you will consider renewing your support by making a gift to our General Fund for the 2016-17 academic year. Every dollar you give will go directly to the support of the students.
