ACHIEVEMENTS FOR THE PERIOD UNDER REVIEW:
Support teacher’s Training Program in Margibi County, Liberia
Learning Squared, in collaboration with Teaching Training Together (TTT), will officially launch its first teacher's training program with three partner schools in Margibi County, Liberia. This training will include thirty (30) school leaders, including classroom teachers, principals, school leaders, et. c; from three schools in Margibi County. The three schools identified to benefit from this training program will include ROSODAN, Minor Community School, and St. Effa Community School. Combined, these schools have over 600 students, and we have supported them since 2019. The training will take place between 14-16 September 2020 in Kakata, Margibi. The training goal is to provide teachers with additional knowledge on classroom management, including lesson planning and child protection during and after school hours.
Payment of second phase tuition in Margibi County
earning Squared commenced its second and final phase of tuition payment to ten students (six female, four male) at the ROSODAN school system in Lower Margibi County, Liberia. Beneficiaries are between 6 and 17 and in 3rd to 6th-grade classes. The payment represents the total tuition payments for this academic year 2021/2022. Our impact survey showed that students are improving the quality of learning and their studies. Learning Squared and its partners are committed to providing learning opportunities for rural Liberia's underserved population and children.
School Monitoring Visit in Voinjama Lofa County
Our project team visited three schools in Lofa County, Liberia, during the reporting period. The visits aimed to monitor scholarship students' level of impact and progress during the academic year. Students' progress report cards, attendance sheets, and parental guidance in the community were among the issues discussed. The team later encouraged parents to support their children's education. Parents, local authorities, and teachers lauded the efforts of the organization. However, the visitation highlighted some areas for improvement, as the schools lack support and need institutional capacities to improve the outcome of learning. On behalf of the team, the Country Manager. Alvin Freeman appreciated the schools and communities' willingness to support the program.
Recommendation and Conclusion
Thanks, and appreciation to our supporters, donors, GlobalGiving, Local communities, and schools for the level of commitment shown towards the successful implementation of the Project. Learning Squared Liberia is open to working with all Liberia children, mostly the underprivileged children in rural Liberia
