LREC is a public school in Liberia, West Africa, privately funded through a Swiss Foundation. We believe all children deserve a chance at a great education, regardless of where they come from.
Operating for ten years, the Liberia Renaissance Education Complex (LREC) provides tuition-free education to over 330 students from nursery through to 12th grade. We’re located down a long dusty road, an hour’s drive from Monrovia.
Qualified and experienced teachers, teacher trainers, agriculture assistants, after school activities organizers (e.g. art, sport, music).
International volunteers are invited to stay in our guesthouse with the project manager. The house has shared kitchen and living facilities, but private bedrooms and two separate bathrooms. The house has running water, power 13 hours/day and limited Wifi access.
All volunteers are welcome to take free weekday lunches from the school cafeteria, but all other meals are self-catered.
