The Honourable Gbovadeh Gbilia has been appointed as the Managing Director for Bridge Liberia; one of the partners supporting the Ministry of Education to deliver the Liberian Education Advancement programme (LEAP.)

A well respected Liberian, Gbovadeh Gbilia  is the Vice Chair for the Education Commission at the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) and currently serves as the Head of the Education Delivery Unit for the Liberian Government.

As the Government’s LEAP programme enters its fifth year in Liberia;  the new Managing Director for Bridge will focus on supporting the Minister of Education and his Ministry to deliver on the promise of LEAP to Liberia’s youth. Of the 298 public schools in the programme, Bridge Liberia supports 171 of them in counties across the country – serving tens of thousands of students.

Commenting on his new appointment, Gbovadeh says: “ LEAP is truly transformational in impact, design, and ambition. I’m proud that my country is leading the way across our continent in public education reform; and that, as a Liberian, I will be leading the work of its largest partner.”

This appointment comes just two weeks after  Presidential Weah honoured and excited the Ministry of Education and its partners with a visit to Kendeja public school, supported by Bridge Liberia. The visit provided a real boost for the programme and the education sector in Liberia.

The future is bright for our youth.
