Making a Difference in Liberia
Libraries for Liberia Foundation was founded as result of a successful launching of a book drive by Zuulu Cooper and the Huber Ridge Elementary School in Westerville Ohio under the theme "Libraries for Liberia" to assist schools in Liberia with curriculum materials and to set up libraries, and to build the first community library in Monrovia.
Liberia is the birth place of Zuulu Cooper, a LAN/WAN Technician assign to Huber Ridge Elementary School. He has been working with the district's IT department for 15 years. Prior to that he worked for the Ohio Wesleyan University.
Zuulu is also involve with the Liberian Community in Columbus. He was the Vice-Priesident for the Liberians in Columbus Inc. (LICI) association during 2008-2009.
We like to thank the Westerville School District Administration, teachers, and students of the following schools of Westerville City Schools District for their support and we look forward to other school districts joining us in making a contribution to such a humanitarian cause:
Alcott Elementary, Huber Ridge Elementary, Central College Elementary, Hawthorne Elementary, McVay Elementary, Emerson Elementary, Wilder Elementary, Pointview Elementary, LongFellow Elementary
Zuulu is proud of this undertaking because he did not have the opportunity to go to a library until he entered high school. There is no community library or a school with library in post-war Liberia. We want to give hope to children in Liberia that Libraries for Liberia Foundation can make a difference.
