WHAT WE DO
A Bold New Strategy
More Than Me has developed a sustainable model that will completely transform education and health in Liberia’s schools. In 5 years, 20% of Liberia’s children will be enrolled in a More Than Me Public School where they are safe, healthy and learning. More Than Me will also be the largest provider of basic healthcare to children.
Every MTM Public School Benefits from our (S)HE Matters Model which ensures Safe, Healthy, Education and Monitoring of our schools. MTM Public School are community hubs for the protection of each child’s human rights.
Partnership Schools for Liberia
Education reform is a long-term project, but the Liberian government admittedly does not have the resources, expertise, or structures to adequately train all the 19,200 required teachers.
MTM addressed this need by helping the Government of Liberia establish Partnership Schools for Liberia (PSL), which is providing school operating partners like MTM $50 per pupil to run public schools. 94 schools and over 20,000 children have benefited from MTM catalyzing PSL this year.
MTM has joined PSL by taking over 6 schools in year 1 with the aim of operating 500 public schools – reaching 250,000 children by 2021.
“In Liberia our challenge to fix education is gigantic. PSL offers us an unprecedented opportunity to confront and fix as many broken pieces as we possibly can in a cost effective way. It’s been a hard fight for many. It’s made our achievement so far all the more worthwhile. We are guided by the experience and wisdom of many.” – Minister George Werner
