More Than Me Foundation

PO Box 438
Bernardsville, NJ 07924
Cause: Educators & Mentors

Mission

More Than Me is a nonprofit organization that helps girls get off the street and into school in West Point, Liberia.


Over 50% of girls in Liberia are denied an education. We work with community leaders to specifically identify the girls who are at the highest risk of being sexually abused to ensure that education and opportunity, not exploitation and poverty, shape their lives.


We provide their education and rally their community so it becomes almost impossible for them to fail. Building a pathway towards the dreams of Abigail and Regina and our other girls starts with walking through the doors of our school and is reinforced by vocational training, after-school arts and dance class, and a staff of teachers that demand (and inspire) excellence.


Having an impact is not always simple. This is.

Big Idea

We asked all of the charities to tell us what they’d do with a $1 million grant. Here’s what they had to say!

For Abigail, Regina, and the other girls that drive us every day, a $1MM investment in their dreams would change, well, just about everything. In the next two years alone, More Than Me would increase the number of girls in our program from 108 to 1000. 250,000 more nutritious meals would be eaten during school hours. Girls in our program would receive 1,200 more immunizations against infectious diseases.


256 vocational classes in sewing and jewelry-making and baking would be offered. 25 energetic teachers would be added to our team. And two additional buildings would be immediately renovated to support our new (and eager) students.


It's simple: This investment would enable More Than Me to build a pathway of dreams for thousands of the world's most vulnerable girls.

Makes me want to kick myself when I think of those marginal inconveniences that change my character. The living conditions and limited options these kids are exposed to are deplorable. Thanks Katy for looking out for someone other than yourself :)

The hardship and pain these girls endure is to me, a man and living in a privileged country unimaginable, but I do have empathy and compassion that these children of God become saved..
