In order to provide basic primary education to children and youths who have been denied access over the past two decades in Liberia, Liberia Transition Initiatives/CAII is working in close collaboration with the Liberian Ministry of Education to coordinate the implementation of an Accelerated Learning Program throughout Liberia. The objectives of this program are threefold.
- To facilitate primary-school participation
of over-aged and war-affected youths 8 years old and up into the Accelerated
Learning Program. In the program, six years of regular schooling are undertaken
in three years.
- To mainstream life skills, HIV/AIDS
education and other intervention programs into the Accelerated Learning
- To explore the potential for non-formal learning accommodations, such as community centers, and partnerships with non-government institutions, such as private schools, to expand the reach of the Accelerated Learning Program.
