Monthly Mission Focus – Operation Classroom
This month St. Mark’s is raising funds for Operation Classroom; a non-profit organization that partners with the United Methodist Church in Liberia and Sierra Leone to empower the people to rise out of poverty through education. Operation Classroom helps young people in Liberia and Sierra Leone grow into knowledgeable and productive adults who can make a positive impact on our world and fight the cycle of poverty.
Operation Classroom strives to address the root cause of the poverty puzzle; behaviors, social systems, and mindset. The key to ending poverty lies in the capacity of people to change their views and perspectives so that they can facilitate change and engage in productive enterprise.
Thousands of scholarships allowing students who would otherwise be unable to attend school to get an education, have been afforded through Operation Classroom. In October 2019 Taiama Enterprise Academy opened its doors for a new kind of vocational education emphasizing entrepreneurship – project-based learning with the end goal of employment. Your prayers and contribution to Operation Classroom impacts the lives of the students, their families, and the communities in which they live.
