Minnesota - Liberia Relationship

Minnesota is home to a large number of Liberians who have left their home country during the unsettled time of civil war.  Since the war has ended, the displaced citizens of Liberia here in Minnesota saw the need to help rebuild their country.  Martha Daidii -Founder of Good Samaritan Discipleship made it her mission to build a school in Bomi County where education was lacking for many years.  The children were soldiers in the war and missed years of schooling.  Now it was time to support the community going forward.

Thank You

Thank you to all of the groups, organizations, individuals, and businesses for your gifts of money and advice.  Because of you we have achieved our goal of building the school.

Project Timeline

Launched November 2006

The incorporation of Good Samaritan Discipleship came together and began making organizational connections.

Board was selected and the work started on finding the resources to build a school

2010

Fundraising has approached a point to begin foundation work.  Plans were drawn and a budget initiated.  Work is all done by hand from clearing the land to making the bricks.

2012-2013

We asked for your support both in prayer and financial as we continued moving forward to build this school that is truly needed in this part of the world. The children have missed out on education since the war ended and struggle to this day to get an education.  Martha continues to meet with government officials and agencies attempting to secure additional funding.
 

2014

Exciting developments - the walls and foundation are almost done and ready for the roof 

Next step is to finish the floor which involves adding a dirt base topped with cement
