Challenge

There are huge gaps in the Liberian health and education systems. The are massive failures on standardized exams: https://www.liberianobserver.com/news/waec-releases-poor-results-for-wassce/ Even, the Ex-President, recognized and publicly acknowledged it: https://www.reuters.com/article/us-liberia-education-idUSBRE97S0TO20130829 The story is no different in the health care sector.

Solution

Liberia Career Pathways work with students in various schools to fill in the gaps in education through our in school clubs and our Community of the Future program at the Center for Career Discovery.

Long-Term Impact

The results have been that the students in our programs are making better grades in schools, passing standardized tests, scoring their best on university and vocational schools entrance exams, and getting necessary inspiration to pursue their dreams. We currently have about 500 students enrolled in our programs in four of Liberia's fifteen counties and we are growing. The gaps in these students education are being filled, making them globally competitive.
