In 2010, we set a simple yet ambitious goal that will utilize our core strengths; - a global network, committed partners, and a passionate engagement. Over the next 10 years, we aim at improving or providing educational opportunities and access to 300 school-age children in Liberia and Ghana. Other short-term goals in North America include constant community involvement as is necessary to support existing programs.
At the heart of our operations is the awareness that one-size-fits-all approaches are not ideal for a global agenda. We know that educational success is further defined by individual differences and regional priorities.
Our task is simple, our mission is daunting, but the Knightbridge Project is committed to playing an active part in success stories around the world, one child at a time.
Liberia by the numbers:
4.2M: Total Population
40%: Population 0-14 years
25%: Children of Primary school age out-of-school
75%: Youth Literacy Rates
