International Rescue Committee (IRC)

Photo Share: A Liberian school's only female teacher

Photographer Aubrey Wade took this portrait of Anna K. Kolubah,  the only female teacher at the Telemu Primary School in Lofa, Liberia's northernmost county. 

Years of civil war and unrest in Liberia closed schools and interrupted education. Now with fewer schools and teachers, the International Rescue Committee is working to get kids back into the classroom. Through a five-year initiative with local partners, the IRC is educating over 16,000 children and youth.
