The Proprietress of the Faith Christian Academy Daycare and Elementary School (FCADES) located at 72nd Kpelleh Town, Paynesville, has underscored the need for authorities at the Ministry of Education (MOE) to begin to provide subsidy to private-operated learning institutions in Liberia as they mold the minds of the young population.

   FCADES proprietress, Lorpu Sesay, in an interview recently with the Hot Pepper, said she wants the Ministry of Education to provide subsidy to private schools operating in the country because, according to her, these learning institutions have made numerous contributions in imparting knowledge to students and enhancing productivity of pupils in the classroom.

   Sesay said she is of the belief that efforts being made by private schools in Liberia towards the enhancement of the nation’s educational system need to be complimented by MOE through the provision of subsidy to all registered private schools, including FCADES.

   Therefore, Sesay is entreating the Education Ministry to look up to grassroots private schools as they are partners-in-education and in dire need of government’s subsidies through MOE, for the smooth running of their institutions of learning. She singled out her school, which she said continues to provide quality education to its student populace.

   According to Sesay, through her meager resources, she established her school as a study class with an enrolment of at least 15 students about five years ago, with the aim of impacting the lives of young people the society.

   She told the Hot Pepper that plans are underway by the Faith Christian Academy Daycare and Elementary School’s administration to build an upstairs edifice with modern toilet, state-of-the-art science lab and computer lab, among other facilities, to attract pupils to the classroom to acquire quality education in 72nd Kpelleh Town, Paynesville community.

    Asked about the current enrollment at the school, she said the enrollment is encouraging: over one hundred students.

   The FCADES proprietress voiced that the school has offered scholarship to over 10 underprivileged children, and is calling on the Ministry of Education to help the institution with educational materials that would help enhance the children’s learning capacities at the school.

   According to Sesay, plans are in the pipeline to decentralize FCADES, first taking it to Lofa County and then onward to the rest of the 13 counties in the not-too-distant future.
