Our Programs

People are diverse and so are our programs.

Universal Outreach is dedicated to providing people with quality educational opportunities. Our projects and programs are always evolving and growing to meet the primary needs of the local community. We are currently focused on providing academic opportunities, market-driven skills training programs, and entrepreneur mentoring. Our programs include beekeeper training, coconut oil production, the Bright Stars Scholarship Program, and Strive - a community educational centre. We believe that motivated students of all ages can build the future they envision.

Give a student a chance

Our scholarship program rewards ambitious students who demonstrate a commitment to learning. By providing a student with a scholarship, you will ensure that a child in Liberia rises to their full potential and has a chance to achieve their dreams.

Consistency is important to the success of this program. If you choose to see someone through a university program we recommend that you start a monthly donation for four years so we can ensure the student has the support they need from start to finish. Helping someone for one year is truly a gift, but seeing them to completion changes their life.

Business Development

Entrepreneurship makes a difference

Liberia has a long history of small-scale entrepreneurship from market business to provision shops. Universal Outreach has been mentoring small businesses for many years and are now expanding our program by providing a “Be Your Own Boss” Business Development Program to start-ups and new businesses looking to grow. The goal of the program is to develop businesses that have the ability to employ more Liberians and build the economy.

Beekeeping

Beekeeper Training

Beekeeping makes sense

The average annual

income in Liberia is $610. 

 

70% of the population in Liberia earns a living from agriculture.

Beekeeping targets one of Liberia’s lowest income earners - farmers.

Beekeeping doesn't only make sense, it also makes dollars. There is a strong demand for honey in Liberia AND a guaranteed buyer for every drop produced. When a farmer participates in our beekeeping program they walk away with an income-generating skill to support themselves, their families, and contribute to their communities. This provides them with financial stability and freedom so they can manage their financial priorities.

Universal Outreach's beekeeper training program gives farmers the foundation they need to start beekeeping, then we support the farmer with practical hands-on training throughout the yearly beekeeping cycle.
