Innovative learning in Liberia

Innovative Education Liberia (IEL) is bringing technology to classrooms in Liberia and changing how students learn.

MAF is partnering with IEL to transport laptops and staff to train teachers in a country where teachers aren't well resourced.

Loaded with math courses, Wikipedia, e-books and many other resources, these computers provide a new way for students to learn and help prepare them for a better future in places where textbooks are scarce.

The lightweight laptops fit in a single container for charging and can last all day without needing power. 

As a result, students have access to resources like digital courses, encyclopedias, and e-books on special laptops that run all day and charge all night.

The courses provided on the laptops are helping students who are motivated learners to gain the knowledge needed to graduate and get jobs or go on to higher education.

In addition to offering new skills in technology, math, and other subjects, IEL is committed to assisting students in their journey of faith. 

IEL partners with Youth for Christ (YFC) Liberia and operates Y-Clubs in 11 schools, introducing students to a life-changing relationship with Jesus Christ.

MAF has helped support the mission of IEL by transporting containers of laptops and flying staff from Monrovia to Greenville.
