Challenge

The challenge is the lack of formal education and professional skills for women and girls which has led to their involvement in risky activities as a means of sustaining their families. There is a saying, "When you educate a girl you educate a nation". NEP will provide education (in the form of skills training) for 100 women and girls over the period of 6 months. This will offer alternative livelihood for all of the beneficiaries and the community at large.

Solution

By providing an education for the women and girls will change everything; NEP will provide skills training in vegetable production, soap making, pastry and cosmetology, life skills, small business management and cross cutting adult literacy, HIV & AIDS, Sexual Gender Based Violence. When NEP undertakes this project, we will not only be providing skills training for women and girls who are involve in risky business, but providing these individuals with means of a better livelihood.

Long-Term Impact

The project will educate 100 Liberian women and girls over the period of 6 months to find alternative livelihood in the form of skills training such as cosmetology, pastry, soap making and vegetable production in sustaining their families that will help break the vicious cycle of poverty.
