OUR FOUNDING STORY

 

We came together after learning of an opportunity to transform the narrative of a community school in Liberia, West Africa. Students from the impoverished township of  West Point were exposed to numerous cases of child sexual abuse, committed by multiple staff members at their school.

WHAT WE DO AT KUTOA AFRIKA FOUNDATION

EDUCATION

The Safe Space Program provides education about the need for a protective, secure and supportive environment that students and others can have access to when they feel unprotected and at risk for harm from others.

COUNSELLING

Providing both a physical and digital (media-based) designated space, where students and others can meet with a trained Counsellor to discuss, in strict confidence, any issues that they feel confronted with, be it campus-based or at home. 

MENTORING

Volunteers meet with the students via teleconferencing regularly during the school year and help prepare them for test-taking.
