Sustainable Development

Sustainable development is one of the central challenges facing the world today. In the light of persisting global patterns of poverty and inequality, as highlighted by the MDG agenda, along with emerging issues like the impact of climate change and the current financial and economic crises, it is no exaggeration to say that, at the start of the 21st century, the world is at a major turning point. Achieving sustainable development requires a global change of mindset and behaviours. Indeed, it has long been recognized that education is crucial for achieving sustainable development.

The goal is to help Liberian young people develop the skills and attitudes necessary to progress in the conventional academic system, progress with formal and non-formal livelihood training programs, find jobs, or create their own employment, as well maintain healthy lifestyles and participate in their communities. Further efforts would be expended to help Liberian youth maintain healthy lifestyles and participate in their communities; increase access to education for Liberian youth, enhance the overall quality of teaching and collaborate with government and community organizations toward the long-term sustainability of the intervention.
