Who we are
We are a community of non-profit leaders, teachers, students and parents in Liberia. We are taking control of Liberia’s educational future by empowering a community. GIT Liberia is a STEAM initiative of the 501 ©3 non-profits, It Takes a Village Africa. GIT Liberia was founded by sisters Erica Davies-Cole and Evonne Adebo who believes in community education. “You can not put money on a problem like education and expect it to heal – you invest time and money while involving a community and watch it flourish.“
We believe self-sufficiency is key to advancing the educational and workforce sector in Liberia. With so much changing in education in the developing world, we are focused on catching up and surpassing educational goals by involving all willing participants of the community. We partnered with schools to renovate and upgrade education systems. We partnered with non-profits and local business to produce seminars, outreaches and informational in regards to STEAM, Agriculture, and Healthcare.
LEARNING FEEDS THE SOUL, CHANGE STARTS TODAY!
