Help Educate Future Leaders in Liberia

by Develop Africa, Inc.
Vetted

Summary

Africa's future leaders are today's children and youth, and Liberia is not an exception. Many families and schools in Liberia do not have the needed school resources to ensure that the children receive a quality education. This project will reinforce and boost education by providing the badly-needed supporting structure and resources. This will include the provision of scholarships, uniforms, school supplies, school furniture, classrooms and other targeted support.

Challenge

The Liberian education system is emerging from a prolonged and brutally destructive period of civil unrest. Liberia is significantly behind most other countries in the African region in nearly all education statistics. After 14 years of civil war, which resulted in the destruction of much of the country's trained workforce, the country is still in the process of rebuilding its educational system. This had led to dire situations such as barren classrooms and run-down school facilities.

Solution

The goal of this project is the provision of a strong and enriched education through schools in Liberia, with a focus on rural schools. This include providing the supporting infrastructure and resources to ensure a quality education such as school furniture, scholarships, books and school supplies, uniforms, building repair, new classrooms, teacher salary supplements etc. This will create an ideal educational experience enabling Liberia's children to become the leaders of tomorrow.

Long-Term Impact

Underprivileged children will get a decent education - transforming their lives and providing opportunities for growth, and contribution to national development. By upgrading the quality of education offered in schools, we will be helping to transform communities and the entire nation. Investing in child development is critical for human development and we cannot talk about economic growth without talking about healthy and literate communities.
