In Liberia, a country recovering from years of civil war, unemployment is extremely high and there are very few opportunites, especially for women.
Last summer, our partner in Liberia approached us with a proposal to start a training program for women. Andando agreed to fund a six months training program for women . 600 women enrolled in two locations near the capial, Monrovia.
The women have been receiving instruction in hairdressing, sewing, cooking and soapmaking. The six months program is now ending and many women are now doing internships with the hope that this will lead to permanent employment for some of them.
Andando hopes this effort will lead to a brighter future for these women as they work to support themselves and their families.
Well done ladies!
