How we are helping
As a first step towards a long term solution, we are working with the Ministry of Planning to identify 1,000 women in Buchanan, Grand Bassa County. These women will be the first pilot of our Micro Financing effort to receive $100 US per person totaling $10,000. We are building basic financing tutorials to help broaden their financial management knowledge

Micro financing program
Women growing in business
Our Women Micro Financing Program provides interest free loans to empower women to start small businesses. Focus is also placed on basic business management training for budget and expense management, and how to become a better entrepreneur leveraging limited capital. Program kicks off with a 1 day workshop focused on budget and expense management and simple business techniques. At the end of the workshop, each woman receives a certificate and interest free loan to support their initial business proposal. Women are great leaders. Empowering a woman is the most successful tool to rebuild a nation.
Women Sewing Program
Restoring their social & economic status
With the partnership of the ROZALIA Foundation and various sponsors, we are impacting the lives of hundreds of young girls and women in Liberia, West. One of our goals is to continue to empower more girls and women to restore their social and economic status and break the cycle of poverty that have plagued many. We believe that empowering a woman is the most successful tool to rebuild a nation.
Due to the increasing number of women as heads of households, the assumption is that a large number of illiterate women may perpetuate the entrenchment of poverty for themselves and their families, which may result in major bottleneck to the development of Africa. We believe this epidemic can gradually be eradicated if women and young girls are empowered through skills training, financial independence, and formal education which will enable them to be better positioned to lead and become better citizens.
Women are benefiting from this intensive sewing class. They are learning the art of temporary and permanent stitches and techniques for using sewing tools and equipment. These women are also becoming masters of taking measurements to prepare and make patterns to produce designs for their own products.
