Our mission is to empower and inspire Liberian children and youths through education, while utilizing technology and social services to improve the quality of community life.
BEE Liberia was established by a young Liberian immigrant named Olive Massaquoi. Her organization supports over 400 students attending the Olivia S. Washington schools of Liberia. The schools were founded by Olive’s struggling single mother of five girls and have been serving the village and city communities of Monrovia since 2005.
In 2005 Olive's mother traveled to Liberia and saw how bad the war has left her hometown and the lack of educational efforts the community suffered. When she returned home she did not bring with her horror stories to tell her friends and family back here in America, instead she asked herself and God what could she do? So here is where the roots of BEE Liberia began to grow. In 2005, she started an after-school care program with what little means she could spare, while also supporting a family of five on her own. Today that small program has blossomed into two different schools and continues to enrich the lives and education of about 400 Liberian children that are so underprivileged.
OLIVIA S. WASHINGTON SCHOOLS OF LIBERIA are institutions dedicated to serving the educational needs of children from Gbarngba Town to Monrovia and surrounding towns. The school's focus over the past decade has been on preparing children from ABC (Pre-K) through 7th grade for a successful future, both academically and socially.

We offer and support educational opportunities, technology, and social services to the undeserved youth and communities of Liberia. Like our acronym BEE (Believe. Educate. Empower) we believe that through solid educational and social services, we can engage and empower a new generation of Liberian boys and girls to go on and excel in any field. Our mascot, the bee, also symbolizes the resilient, collectivist, intelligent, strong, and resourceful nature of our students and community.
Please partner with us both financially and prayerfully to continue to build our community through education!
