Investment in Liberia

June 2022 Update: Progress is happening in Liberia with the ELWA project! Construction work is completed as well as the installation of additional storage tanks, bringing a 9,000-gallon capacity.
April 2022 Update:  Celebrate sent a delegation to Liberia from March 23-31. The purposes of the trip were:
  1. To visit locations where we’ve had work completed and meet the people, inspect the impact we’re having, and rejoice with those impacted.
  2. To assess the situation at ELWA Hospital, where the church has just sent funds for improvements to their water and power systems.  To meet the leaders and the people impacted and fully understand the work to be completed.
  3. To discover other areas of need and determine priorities.
  4. To understand possibility of multiple trips per year and what physical work we can join locals to accomplish.
  5. Continue to build our relationship with the local World Hope team in Liberia.
March 2022 Update: Celebrate contributed over $200,000 to upgrade the water system and electrical system at ELWA Hospital in Monrovia.  ELWA Hospital provides medical services to more than 6,000 people per month and is a leading provider of these services in the region.  ELWA is seeking to develop a first-world hospital in a third-world country.  ELWA sits on 181 acres and also includes housing for doctors-in-training and their families, education academy for staff and missionaries, radio station, and housing for missionaries serving in the country.
January 2022 Update: A group of individuals gathering for worship at New Kru Town, outside of Monrovia, was attacked by armed men.  This resulted in a stampede in which 29 people lost their lives.  Through our partnership with World Hope, we were able to provide $15,000 in aid for supplies and gasoline.
July 2021 Update: The goal of the Liberia School Support Project was to improve the learning environment in three partner schools through a partnership with Celebrate Church Community Church, World Hope International, and the Wesleyan School System of Liberia. The objectives included renovating and completing two school buildings as well as providing solar power, portable computer systems, and desks to improve the quality of education.
June 2021 Update: The staff of two partner schools in Liberia received training in the management and usage of the Sammy’s Smart Box. The digital box contains 20 Chromebook computers, inbuilt voltage regular, and other accessories for both students and teachers to access thousands of educational content hosted on the cloud.

For the first time, more than five teachers in the training had the opportunity to use computers. This was a dream come true for the staff!
In May 2021, Celebrate Church donated over $125,000 to fund improvements to three Wesleyan schools. And all of the children our families have sponsored are in these schools.

The project includes new desks, benches, and chairs so the children don’t have to sit on dirt floors or concrete blocks, much-needed building repairs, solar systems to provide power for classrooms, and digital SmartBoxes to provide computers and internet access where never provided before. These changes will enhance the learning experience, so the children can thrive and change a culture for generations to come. Work has already begun!
In 2019, Celebrate Church provided the funds to dig ten wells in Liberia at a cost of $100,000 in conjunction with World Hope International. World Hope followed up the digging of the wells by showing the Jesus film in the same villages. Hundreds committed their lives to Christ as a result, and received the Living Water.

Prior to the wells, the people in these villages drank water from nearby creeks and rivers contaminated by bacteria. Three out of ten children never lived past the age of five due to water-born illnesses. The ones who do survive are riddled with digestive illnesses and malnutrition their entire lives. In 2020, Celebrate Church sent a delegation of six to visit Liberia, to meet the people impacted by the wells and witness the effects of the work completed.

“Words cannot describe the experience! We did a great thing installing the wells. We gave life to these beautiful people and they are beyond grateful! It was amazing to see the gratitude up close and personal. They asked me to pass their Thank You along to our entire congregation! Thank you, thank you, with tears of joy!”

Child Sponsorship

It takes a village to ensure that a child can grow up safely, securely, and with access to education and hope for the opportunities in the future. Through a range of programs, your sponsorship contributes to tuition assistance, school uniforms and shoes, school supplies, food support, spiritual guidance, community and school development, teacher training, and more.

With your support, sponsored children are launched to be agents of love and hope in Liberia.
