Rachel was a student on Cycle 1 of the Tailoring training. The Impart Liberia Monitoring Team took off time to check up on her works and the impact it has created. For what we gathered, Rachel is of real service to her surrounding (near and distant) of over two hundred persons. She takes contracts from family, churches, and community organizations. At the moment Rachel is trying in the same way Impart Liberia took her off the ground to provide basic training for her neighbors’ kids by presenting fundamentals in tailoring. Continue reading

Impart Liberia has initiated a new project to address social and educational constrains experienced by elementary schools and clinics after the Ebola Outbreak. ‘Profit to Subsidize’ provides subsidies from sales profits to prevent and handle issues that might lead to institutional breakdown caused by the outbreak of EVD.
This new move comes as a result of the Education Reform Policy released by Liberia’s Ministry of Education calling on all schools to close before the end of July and reopen in September and the aftermath left by the outbreak of EVD in Liberia. So to strengthen schools, clinics and parents who can not afford, Impart Liberia intends to use profit made from it’s tailor shop and water cooling box to help schools with renovation works, stationery and 50% scholarship for students whose parents can not afford tuition. And to also make donations to community clinics by supplying additional beds for patients. The first phase will start soon.
“I Learn to Earn” Tailoring Project for marginalized women was launched in order to lift sexually assaulted women out of subjection. This project included in its plan the building and or opening of tailor shops in selected communities with higher proportion of survivors of sexual violence. At last concluding the first phase of the program “I Learn to Earn” Group of Tailor Shops has commenced operation in the community it was first inaugurated. Three females with sexual violence-like background have been employed.
The ‘I Learn to Earn’ Project for vulnerable girls and women kicked off on September 27, 2014 to provide for 24 females free tailoring training as a way of fighting gender disparity and unemployment facing women in Liberia.
This project is expected to train these girls who are survivors of many forms of sexual
violence into many skills-training but begins with its first Impact Area: Tailoring.
At the moment “I Learn to Earn has opened up its first Tailor Shop to employ women only and also serve as job environment for girls receiving training. This is an unprecedented style of skills training in Liberia where girls who acquire training would enter right into the job market.
We welcome your support!
“I Learn to Earn”
One of the first initiatives to launch under Impart Liberia, ‘I Learn to Earn’ is a roadmap project intended to lift girls out of neglect and vulnerability caused by acts of sexual exploitation and gender based violence perpetrated against women and girls. This girls-only project has developed three main impact areas to respond to the physical and mental improvement of girls with little or no formal education at all, and for females who must have been affected directly or indirectly from abuse.
There are three key programmes, which we see as immediately crucial for growth and development of women and girls often stigmatized from marginalization as observed by Impact Liberia. As a result, females with little or no education can be economically independent. We aim to give women the skills to thrive and build a sustainable community.
Programmes under launch are: Driver’s Training, Practical Leadership, and Tailoring.
