Damiefa School

High-quality, low-cost education

Damiefa School was founded in 1982. It remained operational as much as possible even during the civil war. However, the school was severely damaged during the war. We are now working on the renovation so that we can once again provide high quality affordable education. 

Construction of Damiefa School took place between 1982 and 1989. At its peak, almost 400 students attended the school. There was also a waiting list. On top of the regular curriculum, the private school offered an additional program of language skills, maths, science and agriculture. In less than seven years, Damiefa School grew to become one of the top schools outside central Monrovia.

We intend to renovate the school in stages. This will allow us to make timely adjustments if necessary.
