Advancing Youth Project: Interactive Audio Instruction Program in Liberia

In spring 2014, an outbreak of the Ebola virus in Liberia caused daily life to grind to a halt. People lived in quarantine for months. Schools closed. Nearly every aspect of social life in the country’s civic centers was put on hold. In response to this health crisis, EDC’s USAID Advancing Youth Project (AYP) adapted a set of literacy and numeracy interactive audio instruction (IAI) lessons for radio broadcast.
