Judy's niece hosted a party to raise money for LAP when she wanted to do something important to mark her 30th birthday. She served a Liberian meal and asked guests to bring a small donation for the new school in Cow Field instead of a gift for her.

Returned Peace Corps Volunteers of WI-Madison
LAP has received eight grants from the Returned Peace Corps Volunteers of WI-Madison. The first grant was in 2008 and was used to purchase a manual mimeograph machine and typewriter for the Tubman School in Gbonkonimah and to help begin the Obama School in Cow Field. The 2009 grant was used for building the walls of the Obama School and hiring local carpenters to make new desks, chairs and tables for the school; the 2010 grant was used to build a septic tank and bathrooms for the school; the 2011 grant supplied the funds for building a water pump for the school; the 2012 grant made it possible to build bookshelves for classrooms and send a shipment of books to the Obama School; and the 2013 grant allowed LAP to buy picture books of African children and teaching supplies to send to the school for a summer Story Hour. No grants were allocated by the RPCVs group in 2014 but in 2015, LAP received support to buy textbooks for the newly added 7th and 8th grade classes at the Obama School and for purchasing the four sets of nine story books about Liberian children for the younger grades. In 2016, the RPCVs provided a $1,000 grant to fund a pilot project at the Obama School in vocational education for adults. Five sewing machines were purchased, as well as materials to use in the class.
