Vive la Vie School

Pencils for Kids began construction of a second school in August 2009, with classes commencing in October 2009. It was officially opened on February 4th, 2010. These classrooms replaced the straw huts that the children in Liboré Centre had been using. It was named the Vive la Vie school by the two Canadian donors whose philosophy is to "Love Life”!

Inspirational Story

After rehearsal I talked with a wonderful man in Liboré. He shared his story with me and once again my insides cried out to say, "Why does it have to be this way?” He is a soft-spoken, handsome, well educated man, who grew up in the villages and, against all odds, was able to graduate university.
