Challenge

Many challenges are facing Liberia's education sector. They are far behind as compared to other West African countries for several reasons, including overage enrollment in primary schools, many out-of-school due to lack of support and finances, limited access to resources, teenage pregnancy, and poverty. Girls in rural communities in developing countries like Liberia are further behind: they are 2.5 times more likely to be out of school than boys. Providing access to education is a must.

Solution

Complex societal challenges are preventing girls from attaining education in rural Liberia. Learning Squared supports vulnerable and underserved girls in rural Liberia by providing partial and complete tuition fees, learning materials, after-school programs, and backpacks for girls aged 8-18 years to overcome some challenges on a need and merit basis.

Long-Term Impact

The benefits of supporting girls' education in rural Liberia are significant to the country's growth and development. If girls acquire education, they help break the cycle of poverty, inequality, gender-based violence, forced marriage, and begin a family very early at all levels. Girls in rural communities who attend schools are more likely to enter the workforce, earn higher incomes, delay marriage, plan their families, and seek an education for their children.
