(SLAB) Sexy-Like-A-Book is a Martha Juah Educational Foundation initiative, designed to inspire young women and girls (ages 12-21) to improve their perspective on reading, literacy, and education. With 61 million girls out of school globally, the need to create educational programs, opportunities, and spaces that engage and support girls along their educational journey is more critical now than ever. SLAB helps in combating the high rate of illiteracy in Liberia, by cultivating a culture of reading that transcends the classrooms, and motivates girls to be intelligent, poised, creative and assertive visionaries, who contribute to their communities and the world.
Ongoing projects include;
• Annual SLAB Poetry Competition for Liberian Girls,
• SLAB Anthology Publication, Enchanting Voices
• Books, Cupcakes & Conversations,
• SLAB Mentorship Meet-Ups and
• SLAB Young Writers’ Workshop
