A concrete foundation
Cotton Tree is a community of stubborn hope. Despite the devastation of the civil wars (1988-2002) and more recently the outbreak of Ebola (2014-15), the local people are committed to pursuing a better future; a future of peace and prosperity.
We were introduced to Pastor Kathy Charlie who has served her community for many years. With just $25 LD (20p) she began teaching local children. The community have supported Pastor Charlie to expand her work. The school, The Concrete Foundation, now accommodates 170 students, many of whom are on scholarships directly supported by Pastor Charlie.
Pastor Charlie’s vision had long outgrown the facilities. We joined with Pastor Charlie to develop the school building to accommodate many more young people and to help make the school sustainable for many year to come.
