KEEP with support from development actors (i.e. ActionAid-Liberia, Universal Outreach Canada, Monrovia Rotary Club, APM Terminals, Alpha Phi) have been able to reach over 8,000 children and counting in 76 communities across rural and urban Montserrado, Gbarpolu and Grand Gedeh Counties in Liberia. KEEP has also provided “Back-to-School” bags for beneficiaries in the greater Monrovia area with support from the Liberia Telecommunication’s Authority. Each book-bag contained one dozen notebooks, half dozen pencils, crayons, sharpeners, erasers, geometry sets, etc.
KEEP successfully completed several projects for ActionAid-Liberia by establishing Girls Forums in 10 communities in Gbarpolu & Grand Gedeh counties and provided life skills training to the girls as well. We also created awareness to school administrators, parents, teachers and students on the rights of a child and the promotion of girls’ education in Gbarpolu. KEEP successfully coordinated and established after school tutorials for over 2000 children in Grand Gedeh & Gbarpolu and provide life skills trainings.
We have since transitioned in providing sustainable actions at the grassroot community levels – providing various support in the educational sector, particularly at the primary school level. KEEP also engages in women & girls empowerment, economic livelihood, access to justice, promotion of rights in schools, strengthening youth education through computer and reading literacy programs, child sponsorship and advocacy.
