Make a Difference in the world!

Our Quest to Empower Girls

In much of the developed world, there has been steady progress toward gender equality.  That however is not true in Liberia nor in most of Africa.  The opportunities for women in Sub-Saharan Africa are severely restricted by their limited access to education and skills training.  As a result, they are often subjected to gender-based violence, forced to marry and begin a family at a very early age, and are unable to escape the vicious cycle of poverty. 

 ICF wants to start a wave of change—breaking stereotypes and empowering young women with the dreams and the skills to achieve their full potential and in turn, to favorably impact their families, their communities, and their nation.

About The College

The International Children’s Fund is partnering with Great Commission Victory Ministries International (GCVMI) to create a college that is dedicated to women.  A place where they can advance their education in a broad variety of curriculums and through which the women can elevate their opportunities and their stature within their community and their country.

The college will be located outside Monrovia, Liberia and will include approximately 50 classrooms and a full range of support facilities.  It will be sufficient to accommodate as many as 3,000 students.  The curriculum will range from nursing to computer science to business administration.

The International Children’s Fund has been working with GCVMI for more than 20 years and has successfully implemented numerous capital projects including an orphanage, a medical clinic, and a  primary/secondary school.  The objective of each of these capital projects along with countless other programs is to make a sustainable improvement in the lives of desperately poor children and their families.

This is a life changing opportunity to favorably impact the lives of young women in Africa.

If you educate a man you educate an individual, but if you educate a woman you educate a nation.
