In 1822 Liberia was founded as a result of the American Colonization Society re-settling freed American Slaves in West Africa (50 years before the abolition of slavery), making Liberia Africa's first democratic republic. From 1989 to 1997 Liberia endured a devastating civil war. A second civil war raged on from 1999-2003, killing hundreds of thousands and leaving countless orphans. To this day, the nation has not fully recovered or been able to rebuild basic infrastructure. As one of the 30 least-developed and one of the poorest nations in the world, Liberia needs our prayers and support.
Christian Adoption Services has partnered with African Christian Fellowship International (ACFI) to support the orphans and indigent children at their boarding schools outside of Monrovia, Liberia. ACFI is a West African church planting ministry that saw a need to care for orphans during Liberia's civil wars. (For more information about ACFI and it's other ministries, please visit www.acfiliberia.info). The desire to protect children aligns with CAS's mission for children and families so a sponsorship program was started to help feed and clothe the students, as well as contribute toward physical needs such as building repairs or medical problems. A gift of $40 a month can help provide food, medical care and an education for a Liberian child in need.
The Daniel Hoover Childrens Village is home to about 70 boarding students and many more day students. The Oscar and Viola Stewart School for the Deaf is home to about 70 boarding students, several day students, and has recently starting integrating hearing students into their classrooms, which has been beneficial for all of the children!
You may choose a child to connect with through sponsorship. Your donation will be pooled with other donations to meet the needs of all of the children at the boarding schools, and you will be able to mentor your sponsored child through your prayers and letters.
You can also choose to make a one-time donation to go toward ongoing projects, or sponsor a recent ACFI school graduate who wishes to go to college! A college sponsorship currently costs $400 per sesmester (3 semesters per year), and can be divided between sponsors into "Shares". This is just $50 per month for one college sponsorship share, or $100 for a full share!
Your $40 child sponsorship donations go towards providing:
You can expect to receive communication from your child 1-2 times a year, and an updated photo of your child will be placed on this website for you to access once a year. You will also receive a periodic email newsletter updating you on the boarding schools.
