The following letter was submitted to RESPECT International from the principal of the Calvary Baptist Church School in Monrovia, Liberia, seeking help to rebuild its system.

To Whom It May Concern

The Calvary Baptist Church School System was established in 1964 by a group of Mid-Baptist Missionaries from the United States of America, who two years earlier established the Calvary Baptist Church.

The purpose of establishing the school was threefold:

  1. To provide kids with a strong foundation in reading, writing, and speaking.
  2. To impact sound Biblical training as a basis upon which spiritual and moral foundation of kids can be built.
  3. To cater to the educational needs of the Children of church members.

Liberian School System
