Thank you so much for acknowledging our work towards the empowerment   of women and girls at the community level  in helping to empower them with skills  to generate income for self-improvement as well as making inform decision about their health.

 Meanwhile, Promoting public and social development programs in health (PPSDPH) is a local Non-Profit Organization (NGO) founded in 2014 by Queenie K. Nah, a fifteen years female veteran of the National Aids Control Program (NACP). The organization’s National Headquarters is based in Monrovia. The Mission of the organization is to Prevent and/or mitigate the effects of HIV & AIDs, sexual and gender based violence and teenage pregnancy and Economic empowerment program, targeting the deprived, excluded and vulnerable young women and adolescent girls through social development programs, integrating sexual and reproductive health, essential HIV prevention services and promotion of social justice, economic and livelihood opportunities.

The Vision: PPSDPH envisions a Liberia where all young women and girls will have “Good sexual and reproductive health, in a complete state of physical, mental and social well-being in all matters relating to their reproductive system, that will help them to have a satisfying and safe sex life, with the capability to reproduce and the freedom to decide if needed, when, and how often to do so. The organization’s focus is in addressing the exigencies of socio-economic needs to generate income on their own for self-improvement that predispose young women and adolescent girls to HIV/AIDS, Teenage pregnancies, Gender base violence and related sexual and reproductive health problems that are pervasive.

In addition to this, the project is been implemented in Liberia.

Skills building program

  • Making African beads into purse
  • Making African beads into ear rinks
  • Making African beads into bracelets
  • Making African beads into chainand others

Moreover, the project is currently training twenty three 22 women and Girls in making significant impacts in their lives. They are making presently making these materials above mentioned to generate income in reducing poverty in order to sustain themselves.

To conclude, the organization is presently in need of support with either materials, equipment’s, activities, staff motivation, donation   or money that will help us to recruit more girls from the community who are in need of life changing for a better future. The Facebook page of the organization is promoting public and social development programs in health (PPSDPH)
