Liberia: U.S.Three Million Children’s Mission for Liberia

Rev. Dr. Samuel Donkor

A Canadian-based Church has committed itself to constructing a mission school for Liberian Children, particularly street children.

The All Nations Full Gospel Churches International through its founder Rev. Samuel Donkor made the pronouncement over the weekend when his delegation paid a curtsey visit to Vice President Joseph Nyumah Boakai and Representative Julius Berrien at the Capitol Building. The Church’s delegation to Liberia headed by its founder, Rev. Donkor said the time spent by the delegation gave the church stay here; they realized that Liberian Children are in need of better and Christian oriented education.

Rev. Donkor told a team of reporters following his delegation meeting with the Vice President and representative that they were touched by the condition of Liberian children.

He noted that the delegation will make formal appeal to its board based in Canada to commence the construction of the project soon.

“When we toured some parts of Monrovia, we felt that there’s a need for the mission school to be constructed so that children can live on the mission, attain regular devotion and participate in church related activities that will help them to become better and serviceable to the Liberian populace in the near future,” he said.

Rev. Donkor then pledged five foreign scholarships for deserving students, beginning next academic year. He said the scholarship will be managed by Representative Berrien office to ensure that under privileged children benefit directly. The students are expected to travel to Ghana or Canada depending on the arraignment.

According to him, the students will be given one scholarship per year until the five year program is completed.

“The foreign scholarship will be under the guardianship of the lawmaker for proper administration and we strongly anticipate that those that will benefit should be students who are dying but cannot afford. Next academic year one will be leaving for studies, the follow another person, until we reach the point of five”, he said.

Responding to the delegation, Rep. Berrien expressed thanks and appreciation on behalf for the level of gesture shown by the church. He added that Liberians will be appreciative by taking those commitments made very seriously.
