MONROVIA – The Ministry of Education, in collaboration with the USAID Liberia Foundation Skills Activity (LFSA), has announced a US$75 million initiative to improve education in Liberia over the next five years. The initiative will focus on improving access to quality primary education for Liberian children, as well as enhancing teacher practices and learning outcomes.

The LFSA initiative will target Grades 1 through 6 in public primary schools and Levels 1 through 3 in Accelerated Learning Programs (ALPs) in Montserrado, Margibi, Grand Bassa, Bong, Nimba, and Lofa counties. The initiative is aligned with the Education Sector Plan (ESP) and the Liberia Partnership Compact.

Emphasizing alignment with national education priorities, the partnership between LFSA and the Ministry of Education is poised to catalyze substantial progress in educational outcomes and opportunities.

A collaborative workshop is scheduled for June 2024 to bring together LFSA, the Ministry of Education, USAID/Liberia Education programs, the World Bank, and other stakeholders to develop a strategic plan for educational excellence.

The United States Agency for International Development (USAID) is providing funding for the initiative. USAID is committed to helping Liberia achieve educational excellence.
