REBUILD. RESTORE. RENEW
Discipleship Training Center
The Discipleship Training Center (DTC) is a home for orphaned and impoverished high school and college age boys. The goal of DTC is raise up Godly, courageous men who will be leaders in their home, communities and countries. Currently DTC houses 9, but it has the ability to hold 12 if there are sufficient funds. It costs approximately $200 a month to house, clothe and school each member. Right now each student needs additional funds to achieve the $200 a month goal. We support this ministry in conjunction of Provision of Hope who began DTC in 2005.
Dean of the home
We take free public education for granted, but in Liberia almost all students must pay to attend school. In addition, they must buy uniforms and supplies and get to school on their own – no school busses! For many families, the cost of sending multiple children to school can be difficult if not impossible.
Schools have re-opened since the Ebola outbreak, yet many families have had to deal with rising food cost, loss of income, and in some cases, loss of their primary financial provider because of Ebola. Compare with food, clothes and shelter, school becomes a distant priority.
Education however, is crucial to the future of Liberia and it’s people. Without it the vicious cycle of poverty continues.
