Bear Another’s Burdens Ministry of Christ (BABMOC) is a non-profit organization that provides fees-free elementary education to children in Liberia, West Africa. These children's parents cannot afford the cost to send, and/or keep their children in school because all the existing schools charge fees.
BABMOC built and opened its first elementary school in 2017, enrolling 70 students – grades Kindergarten (K-2) thru 3rd grade – who were not previously in school. The school has expanded one grade every year since then and now serves 153 students thru 6th grade, with no fees required. This model is unique in Liberia and is serving as an example for educating students who would otherwise not be able to attend school.
As the school has grown, so has our infrastructure. For example, in 2020, with a grant from the United Methodist Church Committee on Relief (UMCOR), we put in a water system, comprising a deep water well, a water tower, and a multi-basin hand washing station. Our water meets WHO standards for safe drinking water and serves the school and people in the community.
Currently, we just concluded testing an upgraded solar power supply system also funded by UMCOR. Thus far, the new solar panels and batteries have shown the capacity to meet the current electricity needs of the school. With this improved new power system, we are planning to provide backup lighting for the street-light adjacent to BABMOC School which benefits our neighbors as well.
BAMCOC is changing these children's lives and the well-being of their community.
You can be a part of this endeavor! With as little as $15 a month, you can keep one of these children in school.
