Independent researcher PhD Karmen Rouland has released the research results of IBREA's Brain Education pilot project in Liberia. 


The report shows significant positive improvements in self-esteem, gender relations, intrinsic value, peer relations and self-regulation, while trauma symptoms and trauma experiences and negative gender experiences have been reduced.


IBREA is assessing the possibilities for a second phase of Brain Education in the country, engaging all the teachers being trained in Liberia's Rural Teacher's Training Institutes (RTTIs) across the country and an additional 10 schools in Monrovia.


Please share this work with your community and help us bring the hope of Brain Education to many more educators and children in Liberia. Thank you always for your collaboration!!! Together we can make it happen!!!!
