Learning links – Numeracy and Literacy program for teen mothers and pregnant girls in Bong. The fundamental goals of the project are to
- enable girls to continue learning literacy and numeracy while they are not in school and
- to address a range of challenges that these girls face through the provision of psychosocial support services.
To achieve these goals, Learning Links will provide girls with access to quality literacy and numeracy learning resources. These resources include trained tutor-mentors, the Liberian Alternative Basic Education (ABE) curriculum, Short Message Service (SMS)-based evaluations, and performance-based micro-incentives. Learning Links will also provide social support through access to counselors and caseworkers who will work with individual girls to assess their psychosocial needs and connect them to identified organizations providing support services in Bong.
