EMI is privileged to partner with Christian Leadership Training International (CLTI) to plan a premier college-preparatory high school in the Ganta area of Liberia. CLTI’s vision is to effect transformation spiritually, socially, and economically in the communities they serve.
The story of the Christian Leadership Training International (CLTI) is inextricably woven with the life of its founders, Sei and Yah. In 1997 Sei was continuing his education in the US, but was being called by God back to his war torn country of Liberia. Upon arrival, he founded the United Liberia Inland Church Associates and Friends (ULICAF) to assist Liberian refugees who had suffered during the Liberian civil war. Next, they helped found the Liberia International Christian College (LICC) in Liberia’s second largest city of Ganta, in 2009. Being deeply troubled by the massive failure of high school students to pass the national university entrance exams, by the lack of basic support for women, and the lack of discipleship among students, they established the Christian Leadership Training International (CLTI). Currently, CLTI is responding to the desperate needs of high school students by developing a college preparatory high school in the city of Ganta.
EMI has been requested to design a master plan on a 5-acre site for CLTI's premier college-prep high school to accommodate ultimately 1,500 to 2,000 students, as well as a health center/clinic to primarily be used by students and staff, and secondarily by the immediate community. In addition, a request for an access road along with utilities for the school, such as water, waste water disposal and electricity, with a consideration for solar. Finally, the site will need a full survey to assist with the master planning of the site, access road and utilities.
