Promoting Early Grade Reading in Liberia
Another Option is applying their Social and Behavior Change approach to early grade reading as part of the USAID Read Liberia project. The five-year activity, managed by RTI International, integrates activities in community engagement, social mobilization, and interpersonal communication between peers (parent to parent) and teachers to parents. Another Option is adapting many of the successes and lessons learned from its literacy work in Nepal to the Liberian context, including the development of culture-specific community engagement materials.
To ensure the project’s sustainability after the life of the project, Another Option is also engaging with the private sector in Liberia to create opportunities for strategic impact investment.
