Program Update

In recent months, the Learning Safe Project has worked with the Ministry of Education to implement the safe reopening of 214 schools in Liberia. The Learning Safe Project staff has successfully provided trainings focused on Safe School Protocols and set up WASH stations in 214 schools across 3 districts. The Learning Safe Project trainings were well received based on project team efforts to mentor and monitor school staff.

The national recovery work in the past few months cannot be over emphasized. There are still urgent needs among school staff and children throughout Liberia. We urge you to support our ongoing Ebola Prevention work and Post Ebola School Recovery programs to prevent future outbreaks. Ebola may be out of the headlines, but the need for long-term relief and recovery is as strong as ever.

A View From the Set of Our Student-Written Film

Scene 2.3

Int. Daytime - Lunchroom

Alisha and Aliyah meet up at lunch.

Alisha

"Where have you been?.”

Aaliyah

"Oh I was cutting school with Ty. However, it got awkward once he try to pressure me to have sex with him. I wasn't ready and I was sure of it.”

Alisha

(surprised)

"I can’t believe that.”

Aaliyah

"I’m going to be ready soon, but at that very moment I needed more time. Ty told me that I had to be ready the next time because he's been waiting for too long.”

Alisha

"No man can force you to do what you don’t want to do. Therefore no matter what, if you don't say so then don't do it. Don't rush into anything, trust me...

Inspired by the work they created with the MyBlockNYC intitiative, making documentaries about healthy relationships, our students decided that they wanted their film to be about romantic relationships and teacher-student relationships. The class created characters, drawing from the real-life inspirations around their school. A team of selected scriptwriters has now taken those characters and let them loose into a plot filled with drama, valuable lessons, and general thoughts about what makes a healthy, respectful relationship at an inner-city high school. 

We are currently in the process of shooting the script with student-actors recruited through a school-wide casting search. Teachers and students have signed on to act in the project, and we are looking forward to being done with production soon.
