Sang Kromah and Dr. Margaret Kromah, Project READ: Nedra House Drop-In Center for At-Risk Girls

Date grant awarded: April 4, 2016

Although collecting over 20,000 books is a great accomplishment for Resources and Outreach for Liberia (ROL) Project READ (Restoration Education And Development), the project’s primary goal is to open Nedra House, a drop-in center that will provide a safe, caring, and empowering community for girls who are struggling with instability and a vast array of other issues and want to build a better life for themselves. The drop-in center’s aim is to encourage girls off the streets into a safe environment, where they will have access to mentoring and counseling, participate in educational/community activities and workshops, and even a bed in emergency situations. They will also have access to a full-scale library and research facility.
