Project Description and Impact

Youth Crime Watch of Liberia has signed a Programme Cooperation Agreement (PCA) with UNICEF to implement the Quality Life Skills Development and Empowerment of Adolescents project for the purpose of enhancing positive decision making and self-sufficiency in one of three targeted counties in Liberia.

The project seeks to encourage, mentor, empower, and provide adolescents the opportunities to develop into productive citizens. It will increase access to Sexual and Reproductive Health services and information, as well as quality life skills development and empowerment programmes for adolescents. The proposed interventions will further help adolescents to identify health issues associated with risky behavior, attitudes and practices, and make healthy behavioral choices, such as reporting abuse and the prevention of diseases like HIV/AIDs, etc. The project will be implemented in Peace Island, Congo Town, and Montserrado County.
