December 20, 2023, Monrovia, Liberia, Learning Squared, a civil society organization improving communities in Liberia by focusing on education, social and economic livelihoods, and grassroots community civic engagement, is thrilled to unveil an exciting new project that will provide essential support for 50 children in Liberia.



Like many other African countries, Liberia faces numerous challenges in ensuring access to quality education for all its children. Learning Squared's mission is to address this disparity by taking tangible steps to make education more accessible and impactful for the underprivileged youth in Liberia. GYP Debate Club, recognizing the importance of this mission, has committed a contribution of $2,400 to the project, spanning the next six months starting from January 2024.

Learning Squared, in collaboration with the GYP Debate Club, will offer educational scholarships to 50 students in three schools in Montserrado and Margibi counties, including ROSODAN School System, Ann Sandell International School, and Deacon Weh Institute School. These scholarships will cover school fees and other essential supplies, ensuring these children have the resources to thrive academically. The project aims to improve the quality of education by providing additional resources to students. Learning Squared is committed to improving education and ensuring every child has access to education.



Learning Squared's CEO, Anthony S. Kolaco, expressed enthusiasm for this initiative, saying, "We are incredibly grateful to GYP for the funding, which enables us to extend our reach and make a meaningful impact on the lives of 50 children in Liberia. Our organization is committed to ensuring that every child, regardless of their background, has access to quality education and the opportunity to reach their full potential."

We believe that investing in education is an investment in the future, and we are confident that this project will make a positive difference in the lives of these children." Learning Squared and GYP are eager to begin this transformative project in Liberia, and they invite individuals and organizations interested in contributing to this noble cause to get involved and make a lasting impact.
