African Literacy Campaign in Liberia and Ghana 

Now in our 17th year of collaboration and despite all barriers – a global pandemic being only the latest – I am soon returning to Liberia and Ghana to further our Applied Scholastics International (APS) African Literacy Campaign.

On top of the Liberian and Sierra Leonean civil conflicts (1989-2003, 1991-2002 respectively), Ebola prevailed over much of West Africa for most of 2014 and into 2015.  Then came COVID.  Each calamity has forced the indefinite closures of schools, setting back generations.

We aim to help inspire and sustain a competency-based learning movement to eliminate the illiteracy that underlies the genocides and fuels pandemics. APS brings to the table the proven effective learning methods  of American author and humanitarian L. Ron Hubbard, widely known as “Study Technology” or “Study Tech.”

We were last in Liberia and Ghana in July, to discuss prospects with leading educators and policymakers. The demand created was immediate, with “wheels up” on October 24:

• In Liberia, we will be delivering a two-day Study Technology seminar and workshop to an expected 100 professors and instructors at Cuttington University’s main campus.  CU  is the oldest private, coeducational, four-year, degree-granting institution in sub-Saharan Africa. Before the civil war, it was renowned as the “Harvard” of the continent, educating generations of leaders, including Jewel Taylor, the Vice President of Liberia and former First Lady. We are collaborating with CU leadership to help create the university’s rightful renaissance.

• In Ghana, we will be delivering in Accra a one-day seminar to national policymakers and, in Central Region, the two-day seminar and workshop to leading educators.

We have had the generous contributions of many to make this work possible. To all of our supporters, thank you very, very much.  To help fund this next important phase through GoFundMe, please go to:

Stay tuned.  There is so much more to come!
