Growing Tree Liberia gGmbH is an independent, non-profit and non-governmental organization based in Berlin, Germany. GTL is run by a small team working closely and collaboratively with partners in Liberia. We seek to assist Liberians to achieve a more sustainable future. GTL is in the process of establishing a child care complex that will provide residential care for vulnerable and neglected children, in particular orphans, at a site 45 minutes north of Monrovia in Bomi County. In the long term, Growing Tree Child Care Program plans to establish a foster care system linked to the child care complex in order to offer children a more permanent home and an individual family to care for them. GTL also provides school fees for 19 children in the impoverished downtown Monrovia neighborhood of Clay Street, allowing children to attend school who would otherwise not be able to.
In September 2020, we were able to install a water pump on the property in Sass Town with the generous support of the German Embassy in Monrovia. We are now going to use the money raised on betterplace to invest in pipes to bring the water from the pump to other locations of the 4-acre property in order to continue with the building. This will reduce the need to carry the water by hand, which is difficult labor and limits the speed at which we can mold the blocks and build the rest of the perimeter wall.
