The Hope Project - Liberia, Africa

After nearly two decades of civil war, Liberia's infrastructure was devastated and it's education system destroyed. Today the country is slowly rebuilding, but it remains the fourth poorest country in the world. Our goal is to help end the cycle of poverty by providing a tuition-free, Pre-K through 12th grade school where children who otherwise couldn't afford an education can go to school, graduate with a high school diploma, and go beyond to get a job, support their family and contribute to the regrowth of their country. The Hope Project School is providing a future of hope for the children and families in Liberia. Be a part of this story of hope by donating today!

Who We Are

We are a community in the U.S. supporting the dreams of a community in Liberia. Several families in WA adopted boys who were orphaned after Liberia’s civil war. During these adoptions, we developed a friendship with native Liberian Joseph Cummings. We asked Joseph how we could help, and he answered, “We need a school. These children are the future of Liberia, and without education they can do nothing for us.” Read more...




What We Do

We partner with community leaders in Gardnersville, Liberia to determine the most pressing needs of the people. Since 2007 we have provided the means to renovate buildings, construct a water reservoir, buy basic medical supplies, and pay the salaries of the 42 Liberian employees. With the help of donors we continue to support the daily operations of the school and look forward to improving the programs in the future. Read more...
