Our Story

It is easier to build strong children
than to repair broken men.

Frederick Douglas

We embark on an inspiring journey driven by a profound mission—to bring to life the cherished vision of an exceptional mother, Mantee Yolo David, from Kokoyah. While she might not have experienced formal education herself, her boundless passion for learning has ignited a flame within us. This flame fuels our campaign for unfettered education for every child in Kokoyah.

At DavidSchools.org, our dedication knows no bounds as we labor to transform this dream into reality. Our purpose is clear: to extend the gift of free education to every child in Kokoyah. We firmly believe in the intrinsic right to education, a right that should never be denied to any child due to their circumstances. Through the provision of free education, we aim to dismantle barriers, forge pathways to parity, and elevate the entire community.

The promise is unshakable, and our resolve unwavering. Together, we tread the path to bring Mantee Yolo David’s vision to fruition—kindling hope, nurturing minds, and illuminating futures.

Kokoyah District is a rural district located in Bong County, Liberia. It covers an area of approximately 1,500 square kilometers and is home to an estimated population of around 45,000 people. The district is predominantly made up of farming communities, with agriculture being the main economic activity. David town is a village in Kokoyah district, Bong County Liberia is an area of poverty, most of the local people scratch a living from the soil and many families live on less than $1 per day.

In Kokoyah, generations of children have been denied access to education due to systemic poverty and lack of resources. It is in this context that we share the dream of a passionate grandmother, who, despite not having the chance to go to school, deeply believes in the transformative power of education. She longs to see the children of Kokoyah equipped with knowledge, empowered to break free from the cycle of poverty, and create a brighter future for themselves and their community.

 One of the real areas of need in Kokoyah is that of education, in rural areas of Liberia most schools are run fee-paying schools and many families cannot afford to pay the fees. Consequently, a large proportion of the children do not receive even a basic education and of those who start many drop out for lack of funds. The Mantee David Community school is in a very poor condition with very few amenities. You can help build a school in Africa to change this.
