Summary

The link between poverty and the high rate of school dropouts in Liberia is evident. The financial strain imposed by poverty often leads to families struggling to cover essential education-related expenses, such as school fees, uniforms, textbooks, and transportation costs. At YDCA, we provide financial aid and scholarships as well as mentorship to adolescents' girls & children in Liberia, helping to open doors to a brighter future and empowering them to make informed life decisions.

The burden of poverty place immense pressure on parents to prioritize immediate economic needs over long-term investments in education.

By providing financial support, and mentorship, its paves the way for a brighter and more prosperous future for the next generation.
