At The Power to Do Something, we believe that in order to have the most significant impact, we need to target one country at a time and one county at a time. We have chosen to focus on the world 2nd poorest country, Liberia. Liberia is a small country in West Africa that is recovering from the lingering effects of 14 years of civil war and related economic dislocation with about 85 % of the population living on $1 a day. Although, Liberia elected the first female President in all of Africa, women still have limited opportunities and access to education, social and economic leadership positions. In addition, women in Liberia suffer from the lack of information and adequate health services and gender-based violence. According to Julia Duncan-Cassell, Minister of Gender and Development of the Republic of Liberia, empowering women economically has not only led to increase in their personal wellbeing, but that of society as a whole. Empowering and educating women is therefore our goal in helping to minimize poverty.
