The I-Help Liberia Project USA, and Students of the Hunter College High School last weekend honored the Publisher of the Global News Network, a widely read online newspaper for his numerous contributions to the promotion of the work of the group in Liberia over the years.
The occasion which was held in the auditorium of Hunter College High School in Manhattan, New York brought together several personalities including Liberians residing in US, administration of the school and well-wishers.
Fatu Gayflor, affectionately called Princess of Liberian music based in the United States and another musical group from Senegal also graced the occasion as they entertained hundreds of guests with their beautiful songs.
Receiving the honor, Mr. J. Cholo Brooks thanked the founder of I-Help Liberia Project, Mr. Asumana J. Randolph for the honor being bestowed on him and promised to do more in promoting the work of the organization in Liberia.
The I-Help Liberia Project USA was built on the work of a student organization existing at Hunter College High School since 1994 and has over the years been striving to improve the quality of science education in Liberia.
Since its formation, the group has been working in partnership with scientists at Harvard, MIT, Stanford, and Oxford Universities to equip, train, and inspires Liberian students and teachers.
Over the years, students from Hunter College High School alone with their Advisor and instructor, Mr. Randolph always made it their duties to go to Liberia with science equipment including laptops for Liberian schools, and always held countless number of workshops for students and instructors in the improvement of their science skills.
