Build 1st PostWar SustainableSchool
Jeremiah Burgess, is a Liberian civil war survivor, who found a copy of Napoleon Hill's, Think and Grow Rich while living in a Ghana refugee camp! Jeremiah applied the book's principles when he returned to his home country after the war, to build a vocational training school from the ground up. While online, Jeremiah discovered Natalie Ledwell and MindMovies and reached out for help. Natalie, being the "can do" contribution-minded woman she is wanted to find a way to partner with Jeremiah. She shared her online Mindset Training program with him.
250 students graduated from his school last year with skills in architectural drawing, auto mechanics, carpentry and more, and he successfully trained and graduated 9 teachers with Natalies curriculum.
But Jeremiah lost his major international donor this year!
All his hard work and successes are in jeopardy.
As global change makers and conscious beings, we know it’s imperative for this school to become self-sustaining for true empowerment, don't we?
So, in October Natalie and an incredible delegation of global changemakers head to Liberia as part of a conscious reality docu-tv series, called AwakeningGIANTS to further Jeremiah’s mission to change a nation!
Here's how your contribution will help fund the first fully scalable Agro-Business model for Jeremiah’s school.
With chickens, fish farms and agriculture, we will be funding jobs, creating needed food resources in the area, and will create a model for independent sustainability in a country that has relied on hand-outs.
Once thriving, Jeremiah has all he needs to build an army of empowered people to make their own way in a country rebuilding after war and Ebola.
This school will be able to:
- train and graduate 250 vocational students per year,
- teach up to 200 elementary students, and
- train up to 300 teachers per year in Empowerment and Leadership Training!
Your contribution will create the way to help lift up a postwar nation through empowered teachers and a new generation of leaders.
Linking Arms in Liberia!
Helping us on the ground and partnering for success with Jeremiah is acclaimed child rights activist, and winner of the World Children's Prize, Dr. Kimmie Weeks, who launched the Child's Disarmament Campaign and is credited for freeing 20,000 child soldiers by the age of just 15! He has been likened to iconic leaders such as Dr. Martin Luther King, Ghandi and Nelson Mandela. Kimmie has been the honored guest of kings and queens, and is a frequent speaker at the World Economic Forum and Harvard Business School. He has directly impacted the lives of more than 200,000 people in ten post war African nations via education, micro-finance, clean water and empowerment training.
Watch this very brief compelling video made by MTV that tells Kimmie's story and his journey to being one of the most influential youth leaders in the world.
Be part of a legacy building opportunity!
Transformational Leaders and Changemakers you may know who will be in Liberia in October as part of the tv series, and to celebrate the success of this community effort are: Natalie Ledwell, Lori Leyden, Spryte Loriano, Robin Bersson, Dorcy Pruter, Andrea Lucchesi, RJ Lucchesi, Akshay Nanavati, Guillermo Paz, Barbara Brown, Lynn Rose, Monica Kretschmer, Sora Garrett, Anita Defiguerido, Darren Jacklin, Tatiana Mersiadis, and Karen Klassen .
Together we can accomplish what no one can alone.
Lets do this!
We believe in transparency. Our goal is to get Jeremiah into a sustainable position within 6 months. He has mapped out budgets and timelines for us that have been corroborated by Kimmie Weeks.
So here is how the funds will be used:
Phase 1 - $33,000
Chicken, Pigs and Fish Farm and Agro Business (meaning a full functioning Animal Husbandry program and agricultural farm, that not only provides additional vocational training programs, but food for the community. In an area where its challenging to get nutritious food, even local eggs, this is a huge value to the community!)
Phase 2 - $42,000
Vocational School Funding for one year as the farm is generating Year One revenue
Teachers Training for 50 Teachers for 10 Month program
Let's Surpass Our Goal!!!
Phase 3 -
Elementary School Funding for one year - $25,000
Utility Truck - $35,000
Please help with a donation of any size today. You will get to see photos and videos of our progress when we land in Liberia in October, AND we will release more videos and photos at AwakeningGIANTS.tv . Imagine how proud you will feel when you watch the results when the TV episodes are released next year!
Thank you for caring and sharing!
