An Empowerment Initiative

EDUCARE, Liberia a non-profit, non-partisan, non-governmental organization was founded in 2007 with one of its core operating principles being of investing in people and their abilities to support themselves and their families as a key to long-term national reduction in poverty

Building people, building communities.

To use the tools of human and economic capacity building to foster the emergence of a regenerated Liberian population empowered and equipped for a better livelihood.

We strive to operate by the following guiding principles:

  • Ethics – We hold ourselves to the highest standards of transparency, accountability, and ethical behavior.
  • Dignity – We preserve and enhance the dignity of the people we serve
  • Optimism – We provide hope for those in need to have a better life.
  • Service – We use a participatory approach to enhance the delivery of our services that are appropriate and relevant to those we serve.
  • Self-sufficiency- We enhance the self-sufficiency of the people we serve and empower them to rebuild productive lives.
  • Advocacy – We advocate for the human needs of the people we serve and inspire the world community to respond to their needs.
  • Stewardship – We are stewards of the human and financial resources we have been given to ensure they serve those in great need.

How We Work

We work towards the welfare of the most vulnerable people in Liberia. EDUCARE’s interventions for positive change take a triple-track approach by:

  1. Helping beneficiaries climb out of poverty by providing skills and support to develop their income sources
  2. Enhancing their knowledge
  3. Influencing those who hold power to lead by leaving no one behind.

Programming Approach

– Locally Led | Women-Led –

Locally driven approaches in which the people involved in, and most affected work together to create and enact their own solutions to prevent, reduce, and/or transform the conflict, with the support they desire from outsiders.

We believe context matters, and it’s this belief that drives our work. Local solutions are fundamental to solving local problems. By engaging directly at the local level, we are putting the power back in the hands of those working on the front lines of conflict in their own local communities.

Communities are therefore supported through capacity building that may include organizational development, strategic communication, negotiation, effective advocacy, character & leadership skills as well as community development skills.

Success isn't just about what you accomplish in your life. It's about what you inspire others to do.
