Empower Liberia

Clean Water for Elementary School Children

Project Location: Bong County, Liberia

After escaping the civil war in Liberia, Pastor James Gbolo, vowed to help rebuild his war-torn country. Recognizing the desperate need for increased educational opportunity, Pastor Gbolo and his team built a new school in Bong County. The Bong County Education Center is now the only school within a 15-mile radius.

In 2010, Solar Liberty Foundation equipped this rural elementary school with a solar water filtration system. As Liberia rebuilds, Solar Liberty Foundation plans to stay actively involved in the expansion of the country’s renewable energy resources.
