Education and Training
Liberia, like most underdeveloped countries, must encourage, promote and provide its youths the educational training needed to become productive and useful citizens. Not only the youths but also adult education must be of high priority. Therefore, our goal is to assist in providing adequate educational materials and supplies to produce a well-educated citizenry.
To meet our goal for this program, UNIBOA solicits donations of textbooks (used or new) which cover all areas of curriculum for elementary, high school and college. We also accept donations of pens, pencils, chalks, notebooks, stationaries, personal computers (used or new), duplicating machines, and other school laboratory equipments.
UNIBOA Scholarship Assistance Program (UNISCAP)
it is the determination of The United Bassa Organizations in Americas (UNIBOA) is to help alleviate the specter of ignorance in our homeland, and strengthen the will of our people to succeed and have a place at the table. We are pleased to report that eight students are enrolled in the UNISCAP program at the University level—Five are at the University of Liberia and three are at the United Methodist University since 2013 Academic Year to present. Each student was awarded $150.00 per semester. The program at the University level will be increased to twenty students by the 2015 Academic Year.
We are also pleased to report that we currently have ten students enrolled at the Bassa Community College, in Grand Bassa County. The cost per student for the Bassa Community College is $114.00. We are poise to increase the number of scholarships to twenty students at the Bassa Community College. The ultimate and overarching goal of UNIBOA focuses on providing the platform by which the disadvantaged Liberian children can pursue happiness by developing their mind. We must continue to help provide the Liberian children a place at the table of hope and opportunity, a place where dreams and aspirations becomes reality through education. All things being equal, education can help bridged the disparity gap in our society. We can play our part in reducing the specter of ignorance in the homeland.
