Conflict. Poverty. Inequality.
We want to shape a world where women and girls are fully enabled to participate in their communities and where their inherent dignity and rights are fully realized. We believe that increasing access to education and community participation for girls is a key step in addressing inequality and ensuring sustainable peace in Liberia and across West Africa.
Education, Leadership, Community Development.
We increase access to women and youth to quality education to reduce their risk of experiencing perpetual poverty. We provide scholarships, school materials, and education support to young people who display academic excellence but experience financial barriers to maintaining engagement in education.
