The Center for Leadership Development Initiative


CELDI - Liberia exists to “Change Liberia" … one child at a time by developing children from vulnerable communities, to break the circle of poverty through Christian education, and to raise up a new generation of servant leaders who will proactively transform and serve their communities.

Based in the capital city of Monrovia, CELDI is serving over 80 children and youth per day using the UrbanPromise model of afterschool programs and summer camp. E. Walker, a graduate from the UrbanPromise School of Leadership, has a vision to transform the lives of his community through this ministry.

Make An Impact!

All our ministries are working daily to offer love and opportunities to thousands of children each year. They are all striving to bring the support needed to help the children and youth succeed academically, grow spiritually, and develop into leaders who can bring positive change to their communities.

Our sponsors help sustain these ministries, making transformation possible for so many children and youth. Thank you again for believing in what we do and supporting a child.

Child Sponsorship $36 per month/ $432 annual

When you sponsor a child, you are changing a life forever. With your support our ministries can reach hundreds of children through dynamic after-school programs, summer camps, nurturing staff, and holistic programming.

Child sponsorship covers the costs of a child to attend a Christ centered after-school program where they are fed, receive academic support, participate in games and interactive classes that complement their learning.

The sponsorship allows you the opportunity to partner with UPI, build a connection with a specific child, and experience our after-school programs through your child’s eyes!
