What is REAP?

As a non-governmental, non-profit organization, REAP works with partners to provide critically needed resources for schools to help children and young adults in war affected West African countries successfully learn, stay in school, and prepare for life.

reap background information

During the last decade, many African nations have experienced political unrest and devastating civil conflicts, resulting in a total dismantling of national, political, economic, social and other vital systems. Our mission is help reserve these effects. In such nations like Liberia and Sierra Leone, the disruption of the educational school system over an extended period of time has interrupted the normal learning progress of thousands of children and young adults.

Critical among these have been young girls who tend to be the most vulnerable in developing nations. A lack of their basic rights to formal education leaves these young Africans deprived of an opportunity for a better life and a chance to measure equally with their counterparts in other societies. Most importantly, this lack of basic education is an insurmountable barrier to their participation in helping the progress of their own countries.
