Franciscan Works + Liberia Mission Inc.

Empowering Youth In Liberia with Faith & Education

 In Liberia, where 2 out of 3 children do not attend primary school, we follow in the footsteps of St. Francis and offer education to the poorest of the poor. Through Liberia Mission, 500 students receive Catholic education and job skills training, preparing them to be the future leaders of Liberia. 

How We Work

Liberia Mission's Motto is "God, Education, Work." 


Our Franciscan roots guide us as we  offer Catholic education to our students and lead them in service and worship.


We offer access to education for all students in a country where 82% of the poorest students ages 6-11 are out of school.


We offer students job skills training through our piggery micro-business, farm, summer work programs and vocational education.
