MOPGEL is not-for-profit, non-governmental organization (charity number MPEA/NGO/AC#0425) established on March 13, 2000 by two Liberian journalists, the late John Q. Worlloh and Mr. Hisenburg Q.Togba.
MOPGEL establishment is rooted in an idea that cultural and traditional
practices denied the girl child, women and those with disabilities
access to education and training. MOPGEL believes this situation is
restricting these group the ability to improve livelihoods, literacy and
to make a better quality of life for themselves and their families.
MOPGEL exists to minimize gender inequalities, poverty, hunger and diseases in Liberia through the provision of three key programs: Education, Economic Empowerment and the Environment.
Our vision is the creation of a just society where the fundamental human rights of all would be guaranteed under the nation's constitution and upheld-that women and men will have equal opportunities in Liberia.
MOPGEL primary constituency is the rural Communities. However, realized the illiteracy and literacy gap between rural and urban areas, this organization would work in both Communities for the empowerment of individuals.
