These 8th grade student about to enter 9th grade, exhibited positive behavior, integrity and an effort towards academic learning. They are all actively engaged in serving their community and want to further their education to serve others.

“We are all very proud of these students,” said Lindsey Schurman, a representative of the EHG Fund. “They have all shown an extraordinary level of ambition to help the people around them and want to further their education to continue to serve their communities, country and world at large.”

The five recipients were selected out of many applicants and was based upon their academic work, integrity, moral character, and their desire to apply their educational strengths in service to others.

“We hope that these scholarship will be transformative in the lives of these young women. We wish them all well and hope they enjoy the next step in their education.” Schurman, followed up.

Madame Dorbor scholarships are offered through the EHG Fund, an in-house charitable arm of DentalXChange, an American company that provides online services to the dental industry. DentalXChange’s company founders have helped support a number of projects of Full-Circle Learning, spanning over a decade. Generations of children in multiple countries have benefited from the charitable givings of DentalXChange’s employees and clients, who value equal access to purposeful, transformational education.

Lindsey Schurman in Liberia – Day 5

In May 2016, Lindsey Schurman, Manager of Client Services at DentalXChange and a representative of the EHG Fund, went to Monrovia, Liberia to attend Full Learning Center’s Conference to see firsthand, the changes and challenges the Full Circle Learning has had to deal with to help that community. She was king enough to write a daily log so we can read about her adventures. 

Day 5 – The Final Day

20160528_204601Day 5 began with a power outage at the Full Circle Learning Office. While they attempted to resolve this, Teresa, Beauty, Justin, and I sat over breakfast and discussed the future topics of the day. This was our day to review the conference, its successes, what follow up should occur and areas that can be grown in the next conference. While we passed the time, we talked about different strategies the teachers and schools can use to help get parents involved in the child’s education and how to help children exhibit the “habits of heart” outside of the classroom with items such as homework around the specific trait, pre-school year conferences, a parent university to coincide the students curriculum.

20160528_135556We then went to the Full Circle Learning office and spent the day devising ways to leverage the strengths of this conference over the next year and to plan the next conference, where we could improve on such an already successful program and to further grow the program in Liberia. In August, there will be a training held for an expected 3000 teachers that will grow the program in Liberia from 81 schools to 103 schools. This training will be provided by 72 trained volunteers. There were also an additional 30 people at the conference that aspire to become a trainer. Full Circle Learning has also organized follow up sessions to connect NGOs with teachers to allow for community involvement in schools and assist in the growth of students across Liberia. We received feedback from three schools who were able to come say good bye to us and thank us for our visits and participation.

Everyone involved with the program in Liberia was so appreciative of our attendance and excited for the opportunity to work alongside Teresa!
