Annie T. Doe Memorial Foundation Inc., Women Empowerment initiatives
»ANNIE T. DOE MEMORIAL FOUNDATION realizes that empowering a woman is the most successful tool to rebuild a nation. Young girls and single women are especially vulnerable and living with uncertainties post the 14 years of civil war in Liberia. The fragile economic situation leads them to have multiple partners and engage in unwanted sexual relationships as a means of survival. These women and girls have little access to, and control of, economic resources therefore their interests and opinions are rarely represented at the local level.
Women Sewing & Growing in Business Due to lack of formal education and lack of proper financial and business acumen to support their ventures, the women of Liberia are limited in their dreams to become successful entrepreneurs. Program offers 24 weeks of intensive sewing training, and positions women to become self-reliant entrepreneurs upon graduation.
