Our work

in Liberia

Liberia is one of the poorest countries in the world. Unemployment is high and education is often poor. The majority of the population of 4.5 million is poorly educated. In addition, about two-thirds are under the age of 25. Due to COVID-19 the economic situation has further deteriorated.

Mineke Foundation has been providing vocational training to unskilled and poorly educated inhabitants since 2009. Our goal is the economic independence of our trainees. Besides vocational training, we also offer pre-school and primary education, and we have a community centre with various facilities for residents of our area.

Participants always pay a small contribution that we can keep low thanks to donations.

With a small amount, you can make a big difference to someone’s life!

Liberia has a large market for handmade clothing on demand. Our tailoring shop is a social enterprise in which women and young people learn the tailoring skills so that they can earn their own income.

Good food is key in Liberian culture. In our bakery, we train women and young people in the bread, pastry and catering profession so that they can earn their own money and become economically independent.
