African Literacy Project Applied Scholastics International

Our firm is dedicated to community service because “human survival depends on a social framework that promotes and supports the basic rights and nature of mankind to create and change conditions for the better.” Bowles Law mission statement, September, 2019.

That community is global. In West Africa, illiteracy fueled the hatred, fear, and bloodthirsty revenge that marked Liberia’s coup d’etat in 1979-80, its 14 years of genocidal civil war between 1989 – 2003 and the 11 years of similarly savage conflict in neighboring Sierra Leone (1991 – 2002). These were nations notorious for child soldiers, kids as young as 7 or 8 years old reduced to mindless killing machines as graphically portrayed in the motion picture Beasts of No Nation (2015).

From 2006, first as volunteer for Youth for Human Rights International and now pro bono for  Applied Scholastics International (APS), Tim Bowles has teamed with inspired and courageous young West African leaders to create permanent solutions to the sources of such  madness.

APS is an organization distinctively qualified to offer the solution to deficient learning through the proven effective learning methods of American author and innovator L. Ron Hubbard, widely known as “Study Technology ” or “Study Tech.”

APS’s African Literacy Project is addressing illiteracy as the most destructive human rights violation.  From ignorance stems the violations of the rest of the United Nations Universal Declaration of Human Rights.

On behalf of APS and the Project, Tim has thus traveled to West Africa six times in recent years – and twice in 2019.

With continuing support of like-minded individuals and organizations, the Project aims to establish APS as significant partner in West Africa’s post-genocide recovery through national and regional literacy education teacher training centers.

The African Literacy Project’s GoFundMe link enables the donations that keep these wheels turning. Thank you!
