West Point is a slum community in the Republic of Liberia
According to The Economist, "By the time they are 18, [Liberian] girls are more likely to be married than literate. Just one woman in four who has finished primary school can read a sentence. According to a study published in 2014, more than 40% of girls have been asked for sex in return for better grades, money or school supplies."
In addition to supporting girls to go back to school (like our first 5 female beneficiaries on the right) and offering them counseling support when needed, we also plan to run programs in the future focused on empowering girls in West Point community. Stay tuned to learn more about our activities as we continue to grow.
We hope you will join us in our efforts so that one day soon, all girls in West Point will be more likely to be literate than married by the time they are 18. Let's change this together. #Girls
