Leveraging Learning: Revitalizing Education in Post-Conflict Liberia
About this resource
From September 1998 to August 2001, the International Rescue Committee (IRC) provided educational assistance to support the rep atriation and reintegration of returning Liberian refugees. Focusing on the areas of return, and in close collaboration with the Liberian government, the IRC education program provided multi-layered support for 159 schools in the returnee areas of Lofa, Bong and Nimba Counties.
The program had three main components: capacity building, program support and protection.
This report documents the uniqueness of the IRC’s program through an evaluation of the individual program components, as well as a discussion of its contribution to the larger Liberian repatriation and reintegration process. It is hoped that this report will both contribute to the growing repertoire of strategies for implementing education programs in emergencies and in early reconstruction contexts, and serve as a tribute to the Liberians, especially IRC Liberia staff, who worked on the project.
