Where We Work: Liberia
Understanding the power of self-employment for young people, especially in Sub-Saharan Africa, we equipped young people in Liberia with the knowledge and training to create small and micro-enterprises.
As part of our YouthMap initiative, an innovation fund supported by Chevron, we helped establish business start-up centers in three Liberian universities. We also helped local youth-serving organizations become trainers to deliver our interactive Build Your Business (BYB) curriculum. Thanks to these initiatives, young Liberians have grown as entrepreneurs who actively participate in and contribute to their local communities and economies.
