Thirteen kids whose parents are living with disabilities have been provided free and compulsory education by the management of the Temeh Memorial Academy Community in Wood Camp, Paynesville City.
The registrar of the school Mrs. Genevie Miller said the scholarship is the institution’s way of contributing to government’s primary and compulsory free education program. She said among the 13 parents, eight are visually impaired, while the rest are physically challenged and lack financial capacity to pay tuition fees for their children.
Madam Miller recalled that during the 2013/2014 academic year, the school offered free education to eight kids whose guardians are faced with both physical and visual challenges. She said the school, which started operation in 1988 has immensely contributed to the wellbeing of vulnerable children, who are in dire need of basic education, some of whom are making good academic progress.
In a related development, a veteran Liberian educator Madam Charlotte Trinity have welcome the reintroduction of school feeding program by the World Food Programme (WFP), targeting some 127,000 pupils in several schools across the country. Madam Trinity urged the WFP to extend the exercise to other vulnerable institutions as a means of building the nutritional needs of primary school kids.
