Employment focused education and training

Our projects in Liberia are helping prepare young people for better employment outcomes.

Only 20% of Liberian workers receive a regular salary, and youth unemployment is high. The DEAR Foundation works with local educational partners to address the lack of opportunities by providing technical and vocational training to Liberian youth. Courses are offered for trainee electricians, plumbers, mechanics and masons, alongside a full academic curriculum to prepare them with general business and life skills.

Many students in Liberia never reach this level though, with one fifth of children under 14 out of school. Our projects are supporting children’s education right from the beginning, with early childhood education, school meals to combat malnutrition, and on-site medical care for all students to ensure they are best placed to succeed.
