  • Change Agent Network

    Change Agent Network is a grassroots non-profit organization. Founded in 2003, they build and operate schools in several different parts of Liberia. They are focused on improving education and providing vocational training (i.e. computer, agriculture, etc.). Their facilities and programs are funded entirely by charitable donations from the US and the organization has offices in the States. Their on-the-ground activities are managed entirely by a team of young Liberians with periodic visits from American volunteers. The Founder and Directors (Educational and Technical) are Liberian and they have built a team of very enthusiastic and motivated young staff. We made two visits to Change Agent Network to learn about and build a network with another NGO operating in Liberia that has been successful in the construction and operation of educational facilities for several years.
