The assistant will include, notebooks, pens and back-pads for students.
Girls residing in rural communities in Liberia are the most affected in terms of school dropout. And faced serious financial constraints in acquiring primary education. This is due to the fact that many parents and families are unemployed . And have to engaged in petty trade to support a family size of more than 5. Resulting into girls becoming bread winners at an early ages in order to assist their parent .Girls end up as illiterates ,dropout and burden to society and their families .
The project seeks to intervene by creating awareness, providing assistant and support to rural girls education. Especially girls aged 8-13 years. This will be done by awarding deserving and underprivileged girls partial and full tuition fees payment . IDA believes that keeping a girls child in school at an early age will provide better opportunity to compete with their male counterparts . It will also provide opportunity for growth and development at the community levels,
