MULTIPLYING THE POWER OF EDUCATION

Learning Squared Liberia is dedicated to improving education for the children of Liberia and developing the capacity of individuals and communities to build a healthy and thriving democracy.

Access to education in Liberia is a considerable challenge, especially in rural and underserved communities around the country. According to UNICEF, Liberia has the world's largest out-of-school children. Learning Squared Liberia works with community, women, and rural schools to provide practical solutions that improve access to quality education and foster economic and social development for rural women. 

We provide community-based solutions that support women to generate income to contribute to their children’s education and help them work their way through poverty and improve the quality of life for themselves and their families. We also offer an opportunity for women to generate income through our social microfinance revolving loan for women.
