Education is the most powerful weapon which you can use to change the world
Rosetta Steps Education Center offers schooling for children from preschool to Grade 6. Our students primarily come from families where more than 50 percent of parents are unlettered and amenities such as electricity, computers, and television are not available to support learning. Our classes are all taught in English, and we seek to address these challenges by adapting international standard reading and writing materials so that our curriculum is appropriate for the context of the lives of our students, and by equipping our teachers with all of the necessary resources to provide a good classroom environment.
In addition to the academic needs of our students, we also seek to support their mental and emotional health and to offer a safe place where every child feels known and valued. All of our classes are interactive and fun and have an emphasis on creating an atmosphere which promotes retention and interaction. We encourage the “I Do”, “We Do” and” You Do” concept of foundational learning. Many of our students would otherwise have been held at home to carry out chores or child labour activities.
The average cost per child is USD $280 per school year. Some of our families are able to pay this cost, but most families are not. We welcome your support in helping us provide scholarships to as many young Liberian leaders as possible.
