Challenge

Poverty is a general problem for post war Liberia but we have chosen women and girls to direct our project to. Almost 35 percent of the population has never attended school, including nearly 44 percent of females. Further, about 56 percent of Liberians are considered functionally illiterate, including a staggering 59 percent of females. The project is in a suburb of the capitol city of Monrovia and will minimize illiteracy through the provision of literacy and livelihood skills classes.

Solution

We provide basic literacy using the Accelerated Learning Program Curriculum reducing the primary school years from six to three years. The project also gives livelihood skills through vocational skills training.

Long-Term Impact

If we provide basic literacy and vocational skills to victimized girls, their self-esteem will be built and they will be able to make good decisions and live healthier lives once their state of poverty has been reduced.
