We aim to improve the daily lives of rural people.
Bridging the Gaps, Together
Founded in 2022, we are a diverse group of retired development specialists coming together to use our skills honed in Africa, Asia and the mid-east to take a fresh look at the needs and opportunities of rural and low income Liberians.
We will focus on girls’ and women’s empowerment. Our role is to help Liberian not for profit organizations grow to their l potential. in education, health, micro-business, or community building particularly as it relates to women and girls.
A shared history links Liberia and the United States. We truly are international neighbors! The return of descendants of enslaved Africans from America in the 1800’s created inequalities between colonists and Indigenous communities and decades of grievances. Today, Liberia is a country of mostly young people with high levels of poverty, maternal and infant mortality, and war trauma. Despite a thirst for education, literacy is extremely low, especially among girls and women. Civil war, Ebola, Covid and poverty have all contributed to interrupting two generations of children’s schooling.
Yet there are opportunities. Liberia is an English-speaking country, now at peace, and with many local organizations reaching out to eliminate poverty. There appears to be a good match between our skills in project development, management, training, and their needs.
Today, families in West Africa need our help. Local people best know their own needs and solutions. We will work through local NGO’s to engage rural people in Liberia, and eventually, in Sierra Leone, and Guinea.
