Challenge

Illiterate young women in Sierra Leone struggle on a daily basis to get enough money to feed their family, get vital medicine or send their children to school. This creates a vicious cycle of poverty and inequality. These women are some of the most marginalised and vulnerable women in the world. They experienced years of civil war in Sierra Leone followed by an outbreak of the Ebola virus. This project transforms the lives of these young women and their communities.

Solution

Peace Child provides illiterate young women with the skills, experience and knowledge they need to earn enough money to support themselves and their family for life. The young women are trained to create and develop their own sustainable business. The training is specifically tailored for vulnerable young people who cannot read or write. It uses innovative image-based training tools which are highly effective.

Long-Term Impact

The project will give 100 illiterate young women the skills, experience and knowledge they need to escape poverty. It will provide them with a sustainable income for life, enough money for food, medicine and to send their children to school. It will empower the young women and reduce gender inequality.
