Our Mission is to bring African youth out of social Isolation, discrimination, and poverty through our pillars of Mental Health, Technology, Entrepreneurship, and Education.
Our Vision is a platform where African youths are empowered with skills and opportunities that allow them to solve problems in the world and create a more equal society.
Our founder, Reuben Reeves, started Rehab Africa as a method to educate and empower the next generation of leaders in Liberia. He realized that the resources that existed weren’t enough, and he started to use technology to bring together an organization that could provide these resource to youth in need.
A Four Pillar Approach to Empowerment
1. Mental Health
We understand that the capability of a person and of a community starts with mindset. Social isolation, a lack of opportunities, and poverty have worked together to degrade the mental health of youth all over Liberia. We want to help kids realize their purpose so they can see the light at the end of the tunnel. We want to bring hope, and with it decrease anxiety and depression across Africa.
Technology is known as the great equalizer. It could be that, If everyone knew how to use it. The opportunities opened up by technology are many, so we’re training African youths to use technology so they can take advantage of these opportunities. Eventually, they’ll create opportunities for others with technology.
Resourcefulness, service mindset, and creativity are all pillars of successful entrepreneurs. We want to equip youths with these skills so they can create value in their communities to elevate others. Entrepreneurship is also a great way to go about personal development. That’s why it’s a key element that we embed in all of our resources.
Knowledge is power, especially in the hands of entrepreneurs. Education represents the final pillar of our approach. We believe that a holistic, engaging education is crucial to empower youth across Liberia. All of our conferences, resources, and experiences are built around educating.
Can you help us implement our Four Pillars to empower Youth in Liberia?
This is how we implement our four pillars to create empowering and educational spaces.
Our last event, the Rehab Africa Changemaker Youth Conference, attracted around 73 Liberian youth with almost no marketing budget. We center all our events around the four pillars and aim to transform every single attendee.
Discussions & Workshops
Along with events, we use discussions to share knowledge with each other, create a space for people to discuss mental health, and introduce youth to influential thought leaders in entrepreneurship.
We do workshops to teach actionable skills to youth, like how to use technology, practices to improve mental health, and how to start a business.
Curriculum and Resources (Under Development)
We’re currently working on a curriculum that covers our pillars for youth going through the Rehab Africa platform. We’re planning on implementing this curriculum in schools throughout Liberia, and hope to spread through Africa.
We’re also going to post resources like job postings, study abroad opportunities, and other useful educational resources on our website.
