Jola House is a social enterprise committed to the empowerment of women and girls. Their mission is to transform the lives of vulnerable Liberian women through skills development and entrepreneurship opportunities. They believe that education is the key to empowerment.
Jola House directly addresses the social and economic needs of vulnerable young girls and women through training, employment, and the sale of local products. Its vocational and business development trainings aim to increase the number of women who have gainful employment and own businesses. At the end of their training program, women secure employment at Jola House, local shops, factories, or start their own businesses.
The women of Jola House learn to design, stitch and develop their own products. 100% of the profits from the sale of these products are then reinvested into the program to benefit the women, their families and their communities.
