Just A Girl Gets Bigger Push For Economic Empowerment

The donation of 30 new sewing machines, ovens, and other assorted banking materials comes just at the time we need them the most. The donation of the items from President George Weah is in fulfillment of a commitment he made on April 20, 2021, during his nationwide tour when he visited District 1 Margibi County which houses our offices.
Presenting the items to Just A Girl’s CEO, the board chair, Mr. Samuel Darpolor, and beneficiaries of the organization, Mr. Toe Wesseh, the coordinator for special Services in the office of the President said the donation was in fulfillment of the President’s pledge to the organization.
“During the president nationwide tour there were places he made promises, and those promises need to be fulfilled, that’s why we have come to fulfill what he committed. On April 20, 2021, at Rock International church if you can recall your founder and CEO after presenting the needs of the community made a plead to the president that they need some support to continue the empowerment of more girls, and women, and graceful he accepted and today we have come to turn those things over to you”
We believe that when we empower girls' and women's lives, we are developing Liberia and putting incomes into the hands of people. It’s our hope that you will make maximum use of the items that have been provided you” Mr. Wesseh said.
Receiving the items, Just A Girl’s CEO, Evelyn Kpadeh Seagbeh extended the organization’s gratitude to the president and the government, describing the donation as timely and saying it would go a long way in impacting more lives of girls, women, and youths.  Madam Seagbeh also used the medium to thank the organization poll of individuals who have been of great support and inspiration to Just A Girl from the very beginning.
“Words are inadequate to express how grateful we to for what the president through the government has done. On our own through the support of good friends, we have been able over the years to raise 18 sewing machines and other items including the sustainability of Just A Girl, and today’s donation form is a further bigger push to the work that we do and  I must admit that we are grateful.”
Giving the impact of the vocational and economic empowerment program in the lives of our beneficiaries has made the need for expansion and more resources an even more pressing need. In August this year, we certificated about 78 beneficiaries from our vocational and economic empowerment program. The influx of girls and women into the program then led us to add 3 new additional skills, electricity, computer literacy, and soap science.
The quests among girls, women, and youths to gain empowerment skills in TVET are increasing by the day across communities. It’s against this backdrop Just A Girl has been seeking internal and external support from potential partners in both the public and private sectors.
Just A Girl’s vocational and Economic empowerment program is tuition-free, and our overall goal is to provide girls, women, and youths with marketable skills to enable them to become economically empowered to reduce their economic vulnerabilities and to help them live productive and self-sustainable lives.
