A Liberian, Brenda Moore, embarked on a community initiative during the peak of the Ebola Virus outbreak to help Liberian children. She said the initiative is to educate the children and make them feel that they are still in school.
Speaking at the Ministry Information over the weekend, Madam Moore said the initiative started from the Baptist Seminary with about 150 students, distributing lessons, cyrons and other school materials to parents of those children.
According to her, schools have been closed for a very long time so the exercise was necessary to keep the minds of the kids busy while on the compulsory break. She said after distributing the school materials to parents, a check was put in place to go back after every two weeks to make sure the children are studying and to get the progress report of each kid.
She said various communities were covered, including Nagbe Town in ELWA, Rock Hill community, Capitol Hill and Breverville Community, among others, noting that exercise began with 150 children and it has grown up to 2,500 kids around the country.
Madam Moore added that the initiative with the help of few government officials and other partners was able to keep the minds of 2,500 students busy with good progress report.
