44.3 % of Liberia's population is in the 0-14 years old age range. The literacy rate is about 57% (from CIA World Factbook).
Looking at those numbers it highlights how important it is to come alongside Liberian teachers and make a difference in the education of Liberia's youth-one of their greatest resources and their future.
Due to the devastating civil war many teachers are without any materials to teach the children. Basic materials like paper, pencils, and books. They are doing their best to give the students an education which shows their commitment and the value they place on education.
