It All Started with a Girl.
At 11 years old, she was selling herself for clean drinking water, when all she really wanted was to go to school. More Than Me was founded to meet her needs. We opened a school, the MTM Academy, for 150 girls and saw major progress. Then Ebola hit. The world didn’t act quickly enough, and we knew we had to fight to save her life. After spending six months on the front lines fighting Ebola and seeing three students lose their families (and many other children lose their own lives), we realized that our girls would never be safe, never truly thrive, until Liberia thrives.
The first step to rebuilding Liberia is education for all.
More Than Me (MTM) uses education as a catalyst for transformative social change for every girl in Liberia.
Every girl empowered.
