Alex wonlekeh from the George Emmanuel Simmond high school, in Raymond field sinkor Monrovia Liberia. I'm so grateful for the help you guys has been giving us to help us build our education strong.
May the God of creation bless you all, and give you the strength to do more.
Meet Rodney Bollie, Co-Founder of the Institute of Basic Technology, a nonprofit organization providing guidance on STEM curriculum development and support to high schools in Liberia.

In his interview, Rodney shares the importance of STEM Education.

“With the Institute, we are hoping to give students the basic tools to bootstrap themselves out of their socioeconomically challenged environment.

If we teach our students basic programming, let’s say Python, and they take that knowledge and connect it to a need within their immediate environment, you’ve created some form of job opportunity.”

Rodney also shares the impact the Institute is having on students in Liberia.

“In West Africa, every graduating high school student takes the WAEC. When we started in 2017, across the country, there were massive failures. “F’s” across the board.

This past academic year, our students took the WAEC, now the WASSCE, and our senior transitioned from F’s to A’s.

Also, when we started only 3 students pursued post-high school education. Last year, 20% of the graduating class, 60+ students, went on to do some form of post-high school education.”

Today our staff traveled to rural Liberia, Gbarnga, B**g County, to hold a two day workshop with staff from the School of Wisdom. We also presented the first batch of items to be used in the local stem program for the community. We will work with the School of Wisdom to expand our support to the local high schools outside Monrovia, Liberia!
Kudos to our staff who drove for hours and conducted the first session of the workshop upon arrival! #stemeducator #stemmentor #Liberia

Our Mission

Our mission is to create a teaching model that predicts and improves learning outcomes. Our goal is to see children from economically challenged communities afforded quality education at NO cost.

Our History

Ever wondered how to objectively measure the impact of donating books, food, money, etc. to a student in a socioeconomically challenged community? Can we know how such student fares before ever entering a classroom? Well that is the goal of our institution and here’s how we got started…

After more than 13 years of a devastating civil war, the Liberian educational system is still struggling to emerge. For a country whose population is a little over 4 million people with about 45% under the age of 15, the future of the country is at stake. Although the government is striving to resuscitate the educational system, a collaborative, partnership is needed to subsidize the herculean task of overhauling the archaic school system.

The practical steps to what would later become Institute of Basic Technology (IBT) were taken in the summer of 2007 by my wife, Sylvia M. Bollie, and me. We both knew from the time we first met that we wanted to help shape the educational system in Liberia. In the summer of 2007 Sylvia, then a medical student The George Washington University, volunteered teaching Biology at the University of Liberia. At the end of her five (5) week long internship, she returned to the United States and successfully led a campaign to donate text books for the University.

In spring of 2013 we became more intentional by providing scholarship to a few high school students striving toward academic excellence. However, when it was widely publicized that about 25,000 students failed the entrance exams to the University of Liberia, we knew that our actions had to exceed financial donations. Sylvia and I wanted to help address the larger issue of the lagging high school educational system. We attributed this lag in no small part to the more than thirteen (13) years of civil war that decimated the country and the crippling poverty that ensued.

In November of 2015, we incorporated the Institute of Basic Technology and two (2) years later in November of 2017 we opened the STEM labs in Liberia. We are very EXCITED about the future of Science Technology Engineering and Math in Liberia!!!
The Institute of Basic Technology is a tax-exempt, federally recognized 501(c) (3) nonprofit organization whose main objective is to provide guidance in STEM curriculum development and support to high schools serving poorer communities in Liberia, West Africa.
