The Sites

Liberia


In-school sites in Montserrado and Grand Bassa Counties

We serve children at two government-run primary schools, with plans to expand to 95 schools

We launched a two-school pilot with Rising Academy Network in September 2022, serving 356 students, with a planned expansion to an additional 20 schools in January 2023, serving 3,186 students.

We will expand to 95 government schools in partnership with the Rising Academy Network and the Ministry of Education by June 2024, serving over 20,000 students per year.

State of Education in Liberia

Liberia is significantly behind many other African countries in nearly all education statistics

Prior to the COVID-19 pandemic, Liberia was already faced with the challenge of emerging from a prolonged and brutally destructive period of civil unrest followed by the 2015 school closure due to the Ebola Viral Disease (EVD) outbreak. 

Population: 5.18 million

Children out-of-school (percentage of primary school age): 21%

Student-to-teacher ratio: 22.32

Primary School completion rate: 60.6%

Minimum reading proficiency achieved by the end of primary: 14%

Official literacy rate: 48.30%

Impact

Imagine Worldwide and Rising Academy Network plan to scale the high-quality, tablet-based learning program to over 20,000 students per year in Liberia.

Liberia will be one of the largest implementations of our edtech solution in government schools in West Africa over the next two years. The project will be a proof point that will support expansion across the region and beyond.
