International Rescue Committee (IRC)

Photo of the Day: Providing, Liberia

Grace Lavela, 26, and her daughter Sanneh Mulbah, 8, at home. Grace recently graduated from a course in agricultural science from a technical college she attended with the International Rescue Committee's support. She then found work with a local nonprofit organization. With the money she saved from her job, Grace started her own farm. Her father and sister help her grow pepper, sweetcorn, peanuts and watermelons — which provide a much-needed source of income for the family.
