VEE WARD: GOING THE DISTANCE

By Jallah aka the LormaBoy
                                                                                     
Vee Ward is a hard working, energetic woman, who is giving back to the land she dearly loves, through the Ward Educational Fund and School for Girls.  She recently arrived from a trip to Liberia. Here are five questions with this amazing personality.


LormaBoy: You have just returned from Liberia, how was your trip overall?
 

                                                                                    
Vee Ward: This trip was the longest I have stayed since I started visiting Liberia in 2008......Because it was the longest...I accomplished more than other times in the past.  I also got to see our school in operation, while in previous visits the school was closed...so I could see the challenges and address them. The trip overall was a huge success.

LormaBoy: What makes you so passionate about the development of girls, and young women?
 
                                                                      
Vee Ward: Well I was once a girl and when I see girls struggling in Liberia, I think to myself that could have been me had I not had the opportunities afforded me....so I want to provide Liberian girls some of those same opportunities...because even the UN says when girls are educated they soar... They live longer..Their children are healthy , they avoid HIV/AIDS....they take care of their families and the community benefits.

LormaBoy:  Through the memory of your Dad you are giving Liberia back so much, I believe I read on your page you are venturing into some other interests in Liberia, could you tell us more about them?
 
 Vee Ward:   Well in order to support work of the Ward Fund, I have started a business in Liberia....Vee's Closet.... A small business that provides quality shoes and accessories for women and men at affordable prices.....It's open to the public on Fridays and Saturdays at the corner of Lynch and Carey Streets, forty percent of the sales goes to WARD Fund GEMS program.

LormaBoy:  On this recent trip to Liberia you stepped back into the classroom, any chance of you returning to Liberia to teach?
                                                                     
Vee Ward: I enjoyed teaching in Liberia because the young people there are yearning for Knowledge...and I have some to share. I look forward to many more opportunities to teach.


LormaBoy: Where would like to see the Ward Fund in the next five years?
                                                             
                                                                             

Vee Ward: I would like to see major growth for the Ward Fund programs....A full elementary school through sixth grade..We are also looking into a junior college of science and technology.... We hope to have our resource center at Fendall offering distance learning and teen mentorship for boys.


Thank you Vee Ward.
