We are working with youth and communities to fight ethnic and religious discrimination, human rights violations, and fostering peaceful co-existence, democracy, transparency, education, and economic growth and vitalization by instituting educationally community empowerment, and youth capacity building-related programs in Liberia.
Since its inception in 2009, YATIA has partnered with the Liberian Government through the (Ministry of Youth and Sports, the Liberia Peacebuilding Office, Ministry of Gender, Children, and Social Protection), UNICEF, IOM, the United States Government through its Embassy in Monrovia, and rural communities in Liberia implementing projects on education, policy advocacy, human rights, environment, peace, youth capacity building, democracy, and conflict-related issues.
With our passionate volunteers, we have an outstanding record in youth capacity: building and mentorship, grassroots advocacy, education, peacebuilding, and conflict resolution from a national and broader perspective. Since the launch of our PAGE-Liberia project, we have provided 200 most at-risk children with educational support packages to stay in school. Our target is to reach 1000 children next at the close of 2019. Your donation can make a difference.
At the beginning of the Second Semester of the last Academic School Year (2017-2018), YATIA launched the Providing Access to Grassroots Education in Liberia (PAGE–Liberia) Project, providing educational support packages (uniforms, book bags, and textbooks) to 180 students between the ages 10 - 15 years from ten public schools in Buchanan, Grand Bassa County. This project focuses on helping vulnerable students continue their education. The project beneficiaries included: Children of the Old Folks Home, Children of parents with visual impairment, Children of people with disabilities, children with disabilities, Orphans, and Children of single parents.
