About Us

Every child deserves a chance to shine

“Learning is not attained by chance, it must be sought for with ardor and attended to with diligence.” —Abigail Adams

Each Child Counts Foundation was founded in 1998 in response to the suffering of children in civil war-ravaged Liberia, West Africa.  We remain deeply committed to the welfare of these children whose growth has been stunted by war and disease and, to providing service opportunities to children and others who want to help.

Although we have sponsored many projects over the years, our focus for the last decade has been on the children of Clay Ashland in Montserrado County, Liberia. 

The literacy rate is below 50% in the area. With the amazing support of our school builder community, in 2018, we opened the Rev. James A. Webster wing of the Rev. Dr. Claude E. Wilson Academy.   We currently provide free education, meals, school supplies and uniforms to 163 Pre-K through 8th grade students.  We have begun construction and plan to complete the high school wing by 2025.

Each Child is valuable, Each Child has potential, Each Child Counts!

Each Child Count Foundation is a fully licensed 501C3. We have been caring for the needs of less advantaged children since 1998. We believe that all children have the potential to thrive when they are provided with adequate opportunities. We ask for them because they are unable to ask for themselves.

With the amazing support of our school builder community, in 2018 we opened the Rev. James A. Webster wing of the Rev. Dr. Claude E. Wilson Academy.  Currently, it is a seven-classroom school that provides free education to approximately 160 students in Pre-K through 7th grade.

2023 is a year of celebration for the twenty-five years that we have been privileged to work for the children of Liberia.  “Strive to thrive for another 25”.
