Economic Empowerment for Female Heads of Household in Liberia

April 1, 2008

The Economic Empowerment for Female Heads of Households Project will economically empower female heads of household to cater to the needs of their families and send their children and younger siblings to school by providing female single heads of households and at-risk girls with sustainable, community-based skills, business training and secondary education opportunities to allow them to become active, equal partners in decision making and the rebuilding of their communities.
