One of the best things about a new school year is connecting with new students. One of those new students, J Taryoungson Brandy, posted about his computer class on Facebook and talked about learning how to set up a desktop. Through a Messenger discussion, he shared that he is both a computer and hotel management student. He enrolled in our computer course because we offer the entire Microsoft Suite. He further explained that he attended another school and received a certificate in Microsoft Word, but they charged by the application and he could not afford to continue.
He also appreciates the quality of teaching from our instructors. He ended our conversation by saying, “I will also be in the forefront to spread the good news and opportunities that you people are rendering to the Liberian people.” Your generous support makes it possible for Mr. Brandy to gain valuable marketable skills in two trades during the next year!
Our catering students are baking and cooking so many appetizing and mouthwatering desserts and main courses during each class period. Their instructor gives them different recipes to try including many Liberian favorites (such as Jollof Rice) while also giving them well-known comfort food recipes (such as pizza).
They recently made their first pizza from scratch by mixing the ingredients for the dough and rolling out the crust into a circle. Then they topped the crust with pizza sauce, meat, and cheese before it was placed in the oven. As it baked in the oven, the center filled with a pleasing aroma. Our catering students served their pizza to Kelvin Fomba (Co-Founder & Director) and Godfrey Solomon (Registrar & Artist) to do the taste test. Kelvin and Godfrey gave raving reviews to our students.
If your travels bring you to Liberia, we hope you will visit our center. Our catering students would love to make and serve you something savory and yummy because you are making it possible for them to learn this trade. Thank you!
