Mission Statement

"In response to being our sister's keeper, we strive to give her dignity and a fighting chance."

Description

ROL, a nonprofit organization, is intent on providing educational, healthcare, and advocacy services for Liberians in and outside of Liberia. ROL’s Project READ’s (Restoration Education And Development) main focus is to provide a safe environment for girls to learn, be empowered, and go to in times of crisis.

ROL was founded in 1992 by Dr. Margaret Kromah (US Army veteran, dentist, and public health specialist that made mission trips to Liberia during the heat of the civil war, and served as a volunteer for the State of Maryland’s Citizen Review Board for Foster Children), and her husband, Sam M. Kromah, a retired Administrator for the State of Maryland’s Citizen Review Board for Children. They have made a lifelong effort of advocating for children and their rights, partnering with New York-based non-profit, iHelp Liberia, taking top students from New York’s prestigious Hunter College High School and Ivy League Institutions to teach the importance of STEM education to students in Liberia. ROL also houses many at-risk girls at their Congo Town, Monrovia, Liberia compound, paying their school fees as well.

ROL’s Executive Director, young adult author, communications specialist, mentor/advocate for Liberian girls in the diaspora, Sang Kromah has developed Project READ (Restoration Education And Development), a program, based on the modality of empowering girls and young women to evolve from victims to survivors into leaders, based on some components of the Victim, Survivor, Leader model of the G.E.M.S. method, which stands for Girls Education & Mentoring Services. This method is regarded as the precursor in helping girls escape sexual violence.
