Liberia

Liberia’s children suffered greatly as a result of the brutal 14-year civil war, which forced most of the country’s children out of the classroom and destroyed the majority of schools.

Despite a decade of unbroken peace, Liberia still faces huge challenges to re-establishing its education system. 60% of children don’t go to school.
