IPA's first studies in Liberia focused on peace and recovery, including completed studies on peace education, reintegrating former combatants, and cognitive behavioral therapy and cash for high risk young men. As Liberia recovers from the Ebola crisis we are focusing on evaluations of programs to empower adolescent girls and better targeting of cash transfers to those worst affected by Ebola.
September 27, 2021: IPA is currently accepting proposals for a video project, to be filmed on location in Monrovia, Liberia, highlighting the long-term impacts of the Sustainable Transformation of Youth in Liberia program (STYL), a short-term CBT program targeting high-risk young men to reduce destructive behaviors, such as criminality and substance abuse. More information about the program is available here.
The Request for Proposals can be found here, and proposals are due on October 8, 2021 at 5:00pm EST.
