Helping Young People in Liberia with ICT Skills

Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed people can change the world. Indeed, it is the only thing that ever has. Our youth are not failing the system; the system is failing our youth. Ironically, the very youth who are being treated the worst are the young people who are going to lead us out of this nightmare. These are cross-section of youth benefiting from YPPD Computer Training program in Paynesville, Monrovia, with the total of 35 young people undergoing a 4 months intensive inclusive computer skills training from various communities around Paynesville.

This is unfolding in our district, the Youth Partnership for Peace and Development (YPPD) Liberia is butressing the government’s effort in her capacity development agenda for young Liberians. YPPD’s Community Inclusive Skills Training program is gradually creating impacts in the lives of the youth in this district and beyond. The organization has just received another donation of 39 refurbished laptops from her partners in the USA for the expansion of our ICT hub for youth of Liberia. We are grateful to all like-minded partners and friends who are standing by us to make the change we want to see. Youth Capacity Building and Empowerment is our #1 priority.
