About

Resources and Outreach for Liberia (ROL) is a registered nonprofit organization based in the U.S. and Liberia. The goal of ROL is to bridge the gap between Liberia's underserved girls and women to first world education and resources through our program, Project READ (Restoration Education Arts Development). For the last year, Project READ has acquired over 100,000 books and supplies with a goal of opening a female-run library cafe and drop-in center in Liberia, a safe place for girls to learn, explore, network, and work. Project READ will be a safe haven from Liberia's high rate of gender-based violence and an opportunity to explore new worlds through books. There are no public libraries and absolutely no safe spaces for girls in Liberia, so a program of this caliber gives girls access to books, resources, computers and technology, employment opportunities, workshops, and more.

In order to help fund Project READ's endeavors, Sang Kromah, ROL's Executive Director launched a global social change initiative, Project GirlSpire, an online media platform that allows the stories of girls and women to be told, their imaginations to run loose, their voices to be heard, their interests to be discussed and encourage them to be the truest versions of themselves. We’re informative, raw, accepting, creative, and original.

We are in search of a venue that can be donated for a fundraising event in the Baltimore/DC-area. We would like to have a place that can hold at least 200 occupants.

If you are interested in helping out and for more information about how your company can participate in an activity with ROL, like Project READ or Project GirlSpire, please contact the Executive Director, Sang Kromah by email at skromah@rol-liberia.org.
