Growing Tree Liberia gGmbH

managed by J. Galvanek

About us

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.

Molding the blocks for the perimeter wall

  J. Galvanek  28 May 2019 at 11:11 PM

I would like to share with our generous donors and supporters some photos of the current stage of construction. These cement blocks were molded in the last 2 weeks right on the building site using labor from the Sass Town community.  The next step will be placing these blocks in the ground for the foundation of the wall.  We hope to continue the current pace of building, but that depends of course on funding.  Please share our vision for the homeless children of Liberia with anyone who may be interested in supporting us. Thank you for believing in Growing Tree!
