F-SHAM of Faith School for Girls
High Tech School For Liberian Girls
MONROVIA, June 9 (LINA) - The Office of the Vice President has announced collaboration between F-SHAM of Faith School for Girls, The Foundation for Women and EDIFY, an education partner in Liberia, that will result in funding to transform F-SHAM into a high technology school for girls in Liberia.
The high technology school will be the first of its kind low-fee independent school for girls in Liberia.
A release from the Office of the Vice President quotes the Chief Executive Officer and Founder of the Foundation for Women, Madam Deborah Lindholm, as saying that the transformation of F-SHAM will involve a refurbishment of the physical structure and interior courtyard with additions that will include two state of the art computer labs and a solar system to provide power for these labs and other needs for the school, eliminating the expensive regular use of a generator.
Accordingly, the high technology upgrade will include the latest technology computers with high speed internet, video connection possibilities worldwide, access to global software and teaching support, and the transformation of the school’s accounting system and practices.
Moreover, according to Madam Lindholm, the school will benefit students of F-SHAM, the teaching and administrative staff and the community as the computer labs will be accessible outside of school hours to the surrounding community.
F-SHAM was chosen for this special project due to their history of academic excellence of their committed founders and staff, and their willingness to grow beyond the present reality of education in Liberia, particularly for girls.
The FFW is a registered NGO operating in Liberia since 2007 providing microfinance support to more than 10,000 women in more than 250 communities in 14 counties and has also provided microfinance support to 15 low -fee independent school operators to enhance education in Liberia, the release concluded.
