DescriptionThe Ricks Institute has prevailed despite civil war, disease and upheaval. The staff is dedicated to providing a quality educational experience for children in K – 12 that focuses not on self, but serving others. Their ministry is open to girls and boys from all over Liberia and beyond. Ricks is a strong community and it’s a nationally recognized school with 41% of the school population as residential students. A majority of teachers and staff also live on campus. As a Christian school, Ricks dedication is embodied in their feeding program. Living out the call of Jesus to care for the poor and hungry, they live out their testimony by feeding children so they can reach their full potential. The program costs $11,764 per year, or $98 per student. For a year. That means the school is able to feed each child for less than 27 cents a day! All students are nurtured to become faithful followers of Jesus Christ.
