Profile

The More Than Me Academy is on a mission to ensure that education and opportunity, not exploitation and poverty, define the lives of the most vulnerable girls from the West Point slum of Liberia. When girls graduate, they should be able to decide what comes next. A boarding school is More Than Me’ s ultimate vision for the girls because a boarding school eliminates the time spent at risk in the West Point community. To that end, More Than Me was founded with the hope of getting the girls off the streets and into school. Getting girls off the street is important because, according to GirlUp, more than 40{8cfdf55a92ccc9e2ea4d06ac5e617a01930a5cf026bc53ba1027fdcbc233a24b} of Liberian girls ages 10—14 have never gone to school.

AID INDIA is a non-profit organization, founded in 1996, by a group of IIT and BITS alumni who quit corporate careers to work on various development initiatives like donations.

DUCK week at Lower School!

The multi-group recital included jolly renditions from the Lower School and Middle School choirs, the Gong Gang, Marimbas, Ukestra, and the Jazz Couriers. Our wonderful Lower School students were recently visited by three charity representatives after they raised over £1,500 for charitable causes. As part of their annual DUCK week (Developing, Understanding, Caring and Kindness), each year group decided on a different fundraising method, organising activities from discos and games, to face painting and volunteering.

History

73{8cfdf55a92ccc9e2ea4d06ac5e617a01930a5cf026bc53ba1027fdcbc233a24b} of Liberian children are denied an education; over 80{8cfdf55a92ccc9e2ea4d06ac5e617a01930a5cf026bc53ba1027fdcbc233a24b} of them are girls. A girl denied an education, is a girl on the street; it’s a girl who’s exploited and condemned to underemployment. The ripple effect of this denial of her basic right is seen in the stagnation of her wages, her susceptibility to exploitation and disease, and even her children’s future education.

Impact

Educating one girl can change everything. An extra year of primary school boosts girls’ eventual wages by 10 to 20{8cfdf55a92ccc9e2ea4d06ac5e617a01930a5cf026bc53ba1027fdcbc233a24b}. An extra year of secondary school: 15 to 25{8cfdf55a92ccc9e2ea4d06ac5e617a01930a5cf026bc53ba1027fdcbc233a24b}. When women and girls earn income, they reinvest 90{8cfdf55a92ccc9e2ea4d06ac5e617a01930a5cf026bc53ba1027fdcbc233a24b} of it into their families. When we invest in girls, we all win. Our goal is that every girl at MTM will be able to make choice for her life.
