23 Groups To Participate In Adolescent Girls Education Workshop

MONROVIA, September 20 (LINA) - The U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID) has selected 23 bodies to participate in a co-creation workshop to develop concept papers for a new program to empower adolescent girls and increase their access to education in Liberia.

The new program will be part of the Let Girls Learn initiative of the United States Government, designed to ensure adolescent girls get the education they deserve, according to a US Embassy release issued here Tuesday.

Building on USAID’s initial Let Girls Learn funding and education programs, the initiative elevates existing programs, including in areas of conflict and crisis, leverages public-private partnerships, and challenges organizations and governments to commit resources to lift up adolescent girls worldwide.

In July 2016, USAID invited the public to submit expressions of interest to participate in designing a program under its Let Girls Learn Activity to achieve these goals. 

From the 75 expressions of interest that were received, 23 organizations were competitively selected by USAID to participate in the workshop based on the merits of their expressions of interest.  

The concept papers developed by workshop participants will ultimately lead to the development and award of a USAID-funded program to promote adolescent girls’ education, utilizing approaches that produce innovative and sustainable outcomes.

The workshop will be held from September 21-23 in Monrovia at a local hotel.
