Challenge

Quality education in Liberia is elusive for most children. Only 44% of children attend primary school, and many who complete primary school graduate unable to read a single sentence. For girls, rates of education are even worse, exacerbated by sexual abuse, harmful cultural practices, and early pregnancy. Our students come from West Point, the largest slum in Liberia, where most children work in the market every day to support their families and do not have the funds or time to attend school.

Solution

Hilltop Schools operates a free, all girls Academy for vulnerable girls from kindergarten to 9th grade from West Point, Liberia. The Academy provides high quality education, two meals per day, medical care, extracurricular activities, psycho-social support, menstrual and sexual health education, and family planning to over 260 students. Our students are supported in a safe environment by talented teachers and skilled social workers, who support their education and growth as leaders.

Long-Term Impact

The project will educate thousands of girls from West Point, providing education and support to reach the top of their potential. Our students learn leadership values, sisterhood and a responsibility to create change in their community and country. For many of our students, they are the first and only person in their families to attend school. Their education is a source of pride, and also a vital asset to lifting themselves and their families out of poverty over time.
