We're preparing for our upcoming trip to Liberia at the end of April and one thing we're bringing is classroom teaching aids. For some science fun, we need some marbles and ping pong balls. If you've got about a dozen of each lying around in your basement, let me know and drop them off at Mt. Calvary in Acton. Thanks.

GLTC staff and community members work together to harvest fresh crops for school lunches! Our 15-acre campus has ample undeveloped land for growing things Liberians love like potato greens, cassava, and peppers. We've started growing corn to be converted into poultry feed by one of our Christian partner organizations about an hour north!

UPDATE: Information about sending a letter to the child you are sponsoring has been sent out. We are very excited about this new opportunity for sponsors and students to build a relationship!

Gbarnga Mission - Sharing God’s love through education in Liberia

Gbarnga Lutheran Mission Project, Inc. (“Gbarnga Mission”) is constructing and staffing a school called the Gbarnga Lutheran Training Center (GLTC) to provide primary, secondary, and vocational education for impoverished families in Liberia. Our main purpose is to provide a Christian education for the children in the village of Deanville and its surrounding communities south of the city of Gbarnga, B**g County, Liberia. Gbarnga (pronounced "BONG-ah") is the second most populous city in Liberia with nearly 45,000 inhabitants. Located approximately 120 miles northeast of the capital city, Monrovia, it continues to struggle from the effects of war with no municipal electricity, water or sanitation systems. It is surrounded by poor, mostly agrarian, villages such as Deanville, that have no schools or government services. Through the generosity of donors, GLTC is educating children, providing clean drinking water and a nutritious meal each day – all while sharing Jesus’ love for them.

In addition to education, Gbarnga Mission is involved with community initiatives including job creation through various campus enterprises such as poultry farming and block making; community health through bed net distribution and malaria prevention education, well drilling and hand pump rehabilitation, personal hygiene education, and a community-wide eye clinic.

Gbarnga Lutheran Mission Project, Inc. is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization incorporated in the State of Rhode Island in April 2014. It was founded by members of St. Paul’s Lutheran Church (Providence, RI) of whom many are Liberians who fled their country’s 14-year civil war, came to settle in the Providence area, and wanted to support their home country while living in the diaspora.
