liberia-education

We started working in the education sector in 2016 through the Liberian Government’s Partnership Schools for Liberia (PSL) project. The project is a public-private partnership, geared to dramatically improve learning outcomes for children. With data pointing to poor reading skills among pupils as well as lower gross enrollment ratios in lower and upper secondary schools (2008 -2012), we wish to address these challenges. We are now the second service provider and we operator 33 public schools. Our approach is to get learning outcomes right in a small number of schools, funded at a basic level, and then scale up if reforms are effective. In addition to the PSL project, we have also started an early childhood development programme in partnership with UNICEF. We developed a curriculum, trained master trainers (those who will train others), distributed education materials, and set up guidelines for the operation of 30 centres.
