Our Impact

In everything that we do, we seek to generate a positive impact in the lives of children and women in rural communities. It is critically important we measure our results and effects on our beneficiaries. We keep improving our monitoring and evaluation processes every year.
In every Learning Squared program, we seek to understand the level of change and impact that we have created, enabling us to allocate resources to programs with the highest impact and define how to improve that impact on a long and short-term basis. We look at quality-of-life metrics such as poverty and school attainment, and access to quality and affordable education.



Why We Measure:


1. Prove. We have an obligation to children and to our donors to prove our impact. We also use impact data to make resource allocation decisions for programs.

2. Learn. We are continually learning and evaluating so we can improve our program to meet our beneficiaries' needs.

3. Improve. Impact data helps us develop a new strategy for improving our programs.

4. Maintain. We use our impact data to maintain the level of our work consistency across all locations.

Program Impact

Learning Squared has emerged as a catalyst for change in Liberia, where access to quality education remains a challenge. Through its innovative initiatives and unwavering commitment, the organization has been instrumental in transforming the educational landscape and empowering countless underserved children, women, and communities. This impact story highlights the remarkable journey of Learning Squared in Liberia and the positive changes it has brought about.

Empowering Entrepreneurs

Learning Squared's social microfinance program in Liberia has emerged as a powerful tool for economic empowerment, fostering entrepreneurship, and uplifting communities. This impact story highlights the transformative effects of Learning Squared's social microfinance program and its contribution to the socio-economic development of Liberia. The program has created opportunities in the areas of access to capital, job creation, and Income generation, women's empowerment community and entrepreneurship development.

Social Microfinance Program

Learning Squared's social microfinance program has provided previously underserved women and girls with access to much-needed capital. By offering small loans and financial services to aspiring entrepreneurs, the program has unlocked opportunities for individuals who lacked access to traditional banking systems.

Empowering Communities, Inspiring Change

Learning Squared's impact extends beyond individual students and schools; it encompasses entire communities. The organization has fostered a sense of ownership and collective responsibility for education by actively engaging parents, community leaders, and local stakeholders. This community-driven approach has increased involvement, support, and sustainability, resulting in long-term education and social development transformations.

Generous donations from board members and other leaders cover most of Learning Squared Liberia's administrative costs, so nearly all contributions to our organization are allocated directly to our programs and projects. Disbursement of funds and oversight of impact are overseen by a committed board of directors and management team. We are committed to maximizing the investments donors make in our mission.
