Civil Compound- Liberia 2012

Civil Compound- Liberia 2012

This is Civil Compound, basically it is out in the bush. To get here this year was an adventure in itself, a fun adventure!! Since it was “drizzling”, we were walking through puddles as high as our thighs, and when trekking through the bush I had my camera put in a plastic bag in my pack for safety. However, I do have some pretty amazing pictures still to share. I have to start the tale of our adventures to Civil…

Sinkor and 11th Street

Sinkor and 11th Street

An overview of Serve the Children in Liberia. 1. They have three schools located in Liberia. One is in Monrovia known as Sinkor, the other is at 15Gate just off the Firestone reservation, and the third one is in the Firestone reservation known as Civil Compound. When the teams are there we stay on the 3rd floor of the Sinkor school. So each morning you are awoken by the community waking up and children laughing, you fall asleep to either…

Late nights ramblings.

Late nights ramblings.

Well, let’s see. I leave for Liberia in 4 days…. I feel like I am in a limbo period and just waiting for it to happen. It is the emotion I got at a swim meet just before I flew off the dive stool into the water and swam my heart out to the finish. So much has happened in the last six months. I am at a great place in life right now. I haven’t felt more confident in…

[July 4th, 2011; 12:30am = Liberian Time] Traveling again. Back to Washington state 🙁 Not surprisingly, I am not doing too well.I was able to not cry around any of the Liberians, but once sitting in the waiting area at the airport, after going through customs, I just silently broke down. I think it was silent anyway. I was able to get a window seat for the trip to Accra, Ghana though. I sobbed as I watched Liberia leave; I…

Liberian Journal, Day 3

[June 21st, 2011 : 1:25pm] Busy day today. Drank 3 bottles of water already (the big 1.5 liter). Very cool day, not sweating enough to merit drinking that much so now I’m peeing all the time. Today has been different from yesterday. Lots of kids today, since they are all inside due to the torrential rains we are experiencing. Lots of kids holding onto me at all times; I have a party of 10 or so with me whenever I…

Liberian Blog, Day 2

[June 20th, 2011, 11:45am] At Sinkor, we got in last night around 8pm. The drive here was a lot of fun!! 3 people in the back seat, the driver, and then two people in the passenger seat. Stephen, Diane, and I were in the back. Diane is not doing so well since her carry-on bag with her medications got taken away in Atlanta and are now lost. It was not too hot last night, muggy yes, but I liked it….
