Learning Squared, a civil society organization dedicated to promoting education, livelihood, and civic engagement in Liberia, has successfully completed a series of voter registration awareness exercises in Gbarpolu County. The activities took place over a two-week period in Gbarma and Bopolu Districts, with the aim of increasing voter participation and engagement in the upcoming elections. Through these efforts, Learning Squared sought to educate citizens on the importance of voter registration and voting in a democratic society, and to encourage them to exercise their right to vote.
With the support of local volunteers, CBOs, women and young people, the disabled community and County authorities. Learning Squared was able to encourage hundreds of first time voters, many of whom had never registered to vote before. The organization also provided over five thousand copies of fliers, posters, and civic education materials to help voters understand their rights and responsibilities as citizens.
"We are thrilled with the success of this voter registration exercise," said Siotepoh Broh, Program Officer of Learning Squared. "By helping more people register to vote and understand the importance of civic engagement, we are building a stronger, more informed democracy in Liberia." As part of the campaign, Learning Squared will be partnering with schools, community organizations, and other stakeholders to offer a range awareness campaign message. This will help citizens understand the importance of civic engagement and the role of voting in our democracy.
Learning Squared would like to thank the local authorities and volunteers who supported this exercise, as well as the citizens of Gbarpolu County who participated in the process. The organization remains committed to promoting education and civic engagement in Liberia and looks forward to supporting voter participation in future elections.
