Enrich the Mind, a 501 (c) (3) nonprofit organization, was established to improve the educational outcomes of students in Liberia. This foundation was born from the belief that education is the best remedy for poverty, and other social ills that plague the country; and our passion to help ensure that the youth of Liberia get the best education possible. Our vision is to unlock the full potential of our youth - one mind at a time - by championing literacy and equity in education.

Matilda Newport Junior High School Library Renovation Project

Having a fully functioning library is one of many conditions for learning that is very essential to the success of students. The current state of the library is not conducive for learning. During the renovation project, we intend to transform the library into a mini state-of-the-art library. We intend to do the following:

Install sliding windows and doors
Install proper lighting
Install air conditioner
Create a fully functioning computer lab with at least ten computers with internet access
Add a copier/ printer
Install a power generator
Build more and better bookshelves
Add better chairs and table
Repair the leaking roof
Change the tiles on the floor

In Liberia, libraries have not been a central part of the developmental agenda. Prior to the war, the country maintained one public library (located in the country's capital) and most of the public schools were built without libraries. With the high illiteracy rates and a severely under-resourced education system, there has been a limited but growing focus on establishing libraries and reading rooms to help build a culture or reading; but for the most part, this is an area that has been forgotten when it comes to development. As our first major project, Enrich The Mind plans to build the first state of the art public library in Liberia - Monrovia Public Library and Learning Center (MPLLC) - to help increase the literacy rate in Liberia, promote a culture of reading, and support the educational goals of the Ministry of Education. The library will be free to the public and, once completed, will offer an array of literacy resources, materials, programs and learning opportunities for all age groups.

Vision:
Our vision is that MPLLC will be a hub for life-long learning, empowerment, intellectual and community engagement. In addition, MPLLC will create equitable access to information, promote innovation, build citizenship and will play a vital role in transforming the country's educational landscape.

Facility:
MPLLC will be a three-story, 30,000 sq. ft. facility that will house:
A wide collection of books and reading materials that are relevant to the needs of the community
A children's area and interactive early childhood literacy center
A research area with access to physical and digital reference materials
Online access to peer-reviewed journals, and databases
Individual and group study rooms
A computer lab and computer stations
A conference room and lecture hall
Collaborative learning spaces
Free internet access
A café

Library Programs:
Tutoring and test prep
Mentoring program
Storytime
Science Technology Engineering Art and Math (STEAM/STEM) Programs
Young Adult/Adult Literacy classes
Computer Literacy classes
Women and girls empowerment program
Public health campaigns

Sustainable Development:
MPLLC will be a key institution in the implementation of the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (e.g., goals 4.6 - "By 2030, ensure that all youth and a substantial proportion of adults, both men and women, achieve literacy and numeracy" and 16.10 - "Ensure public access to information…"), and will play a critical role in bridging the digital divide.
