GOLL SCHOOL

Young students at the Goll Farm School, extending thanks for the financial support which has come through Grace Church. Starting in 2011, the people of Grace Church, and other donors, contributed more than $15,000 for the initial construction of the school, located in the village of Suakoko, Liberia. Almost all of this support came in the form of donations of $25 or $50. The people of Grace also supported a book collection, building a school library substantially larger than any other in the region, and named the library in honor of E. Christopher Cone, a Grace parishioner. 

 

Grace Church recently sent a gift to the school, and a parishioner has matched the donation to be use toward the education of young Liberians who would otherwise not be able to attend school at all. Donations to "Grace Church", with "Goll Farm School" on memo line by check, or online, are very welcome. Your donations support the education of the little children in the picture, and a great many more.
