Volunteer with Liberia Renaissance Education Complex (LREC)

Liberia Renaissance Education Complex (LREC)

Duazon, Liberia, Africa

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.
