Summary

This project will prevent the spread of Coronavirus in Liberia by engaging approximately 1 million Liberians to ensure that they know, understand and implement the Coronavirus health protocols. We will partner with 213 community-based organizations and 25 media houses to ensure the messages and spread far and wide, and to ensure direct aid (food, water, hygiene supplies) reach the most vulnerable Liberians.

Challenge

As Liberia works to prevent the spread of Coronavirus, many communities are without water (to wash, sanitize and drink), as it is the end of the dry season. There is national fuel shortage. The national lockdown means many people that rely on the informal economy are without adequate food. Access to public health information remains a major challenge, especially for people living in rural communities, and misinformation about Coronavirus is easily spread.

Solution

GPFA is using three main strategies to prevent the spread of Coronavirus in Liberia: partnerships, including grants, training and capacity building, with community-based organizations (predominantly women-led groups and youth groups) and media houses; a mass mobilization public health campaign; and direct aid to women and vulnerable groups. We will take a risk-based approach to identifying the communities that we work with, with deeper engagement in the communities with confirmed COVID19 cases.

Long-Term Impact

We will train 150 community mobilizers providing awareness to prevent the spread of COVID-19 in 15 counties. We will support 213 local groups through seed funding and capacity building. At least 700,000 community dwellers will directly connect with a trained COVID-19 mobilizer, receiving COVID-19 prevention messaging and implementing the approved health protocols. 100 students whose education has been disrupted will receive practical, educational and psycho-social support.
