COMMUNITY COMMERCE INITIATIVE: TODEE MISSION SCHOOL
We proudly partner with Todee Mission, a boarding and day school in Liberia, West Africa that runs from first through ninth grade. The school, located in a rural region in central Liberia, is an important community resource for some 140 villages in the surrounding area with its clinic, farm and other facilities that extend themselves to help the local people. Sitting high high on a hill in northern Montserrado County, the Mission owns 200 acres of land that abuts the Firestone rubber plantation. The school's policy is to not turn a child away if their family cannot pay tuition. Most students' tuition is paid through scholarships, or in-kind contributions of food or other staples and supplies. The school is accredited by the Liberia’s Ministry of Education and students engage in a full academic curriculum, vocational classes and undergo life skills training. Every year, Nubian Heritage makes a contribution to the school, including providing scholarships and helping build dormitories. We've challenged Todee with a goal of being self-sustainable and made a donation to help develop its agricultural program, with crops and livestock, including sheep, goats and pigs.
