We are happy to share with you our worthwhile journey of transforming learners as agents of change, both locally and globally. Founded in 2009, Lifting the Barriers (LIBA) is a professional educational development organisation with a long tradition in child-centred and value-driven education, as well as parental involvement in education.

Officially registered (Community Based Organization > CBO) and recognized by the government, LIBA has grown to become one of the recognized organisations working on education in Kilifi County.

Together with its partners in Kenya and in the Netherlands, LIBA aims to offer quality education to underprivileged children and adolescents in rural Kenya by offering an appealing alternative:
that education is a sustainable investment opportunity and is -and remains- the only way out of poverty.

We have over 9 years of knowledge and experience working with schools and their communities, and yet every day we are learning the solutions from the people we work with.
