Liberian Orphan Education Project

I never knew how many connections can be made just through a blog. Last year, Beth from Liberian Orphan Education Project (LOEP) contacted me because she saw our blog on our work and travels in Liberia. She was especially interested in the Hope for the Deaf School. LOEP is a non-profit organization that is dedicated to educating orphans in Liberia, by providing training and resources for the orphanage schools. Their interest in the Hope School came after they found out that the partner orphanage they were working with had a few deaf students, and the group was curious about services for deaf students in Liberia.

They recently traveled to Liberia to complete teacher training, and were able to visit the Hope for the Deaf school. It is yet another connection that will hopefully spread the mission of the school.

Please see their blog to see info and pictures of their visit. And please share the good work that is happening in Liberia.
