• Our Mission:

    Pa’s Hat Foundation is dedicated to enable former child soldiers and all boys of Liberia access to education.

    Our Vision:

    A Liberia where all people have equal access to education and employment for a fulfilling life.


  • The Liberia Project

    We will offer a free of charge first rate school for boys, and adult literacy and employment training and guidance for former combatants. Our students will be the under-served males from communities such as the West Point Slum, one of the poorest locations on earth.

  • Objectives

    Our students will learn alternatives to a life of crime and violence. Our innovative programming with a focus on arts education will empower these males to become assets to their community and the world.

  • Liberia After The War


  • Some Facts

    Child Soldiers
    The victims of war are many, especially children who themselves are guilty of having committed horrible and terrifying acts and who suffered horrendous abuses. Over 38,000 child soldiers in Liberia, from ages 7-15, were recruited to fight over the course of the 14 years of war.

  • 85% Illiteracy

    Although the war has ended, the effects continue to impact its citizens in crippling ways. There is over 85% illiteracy in Liberia.  

  • Education is a human right. Please help us help former child soldiers, and boys gain access to literacy through the arts and exciting innovative methods.

    Pa’s Hat Foundation is a 501(c)(3) not for profit organization.
