Empowered Liberian Youth

As a valued Classroom Hero, your Super Powers allow Liberian Youth to realize their own Star Potential. For the past year, your commitment and support has given young men and women the means to learn valuable skills and build self-confidence. Now, as they look forward to graduation, they possess the  skills to succeed; you made that possible.

As a result of your generous support, students like Jeanette Mambu (Catering Vice President – in photo) have hope for the future. In this video (at 2:10), Kelvin Fomba (UDS Co-Founder & Director – in photo) asks Jeanette if she could make food now for her and her family. She answers, “Oh yes… Right now, I am not looking for a job to do. I am looking for faith that I go empower myself.” Also, she confirmed the rest of her fellow students feel the same way.

  • Great job. I am grateful to see that there was a shift in mindset relative self sustainability. Ms. Mambu talked about thriving on her own to make it after graduation and not seeking government job. Thanks for creating the opportunity for she and the other students to have hope and self worth.
