Bosh Bosh Girls for Let Girls Learn

Image of the Bosh Bosh girls promoting the Let Girls Learn initiative.

Bosh Bosh began as an after-school girls’ club in Salala, Liberia in 2012, led by a Peace Corps Volunteer and her Liberian counterpart to encourage young females to take control of their own lives and graduate. The project was inspired by a trip to Sierra Leone, where Returned Peace Corps Volunteer, Charlene Espinoza, decided to have girls produce their own handbags for sale by sewing scraps together. The project literally started from scraps… Then sewing classes started with a bag of scraps, some needles, thread, and hand-sewing lessons in the local school library. By June of 2013, Bosh Bosh had opened its own shop and was registered as a Liberian NGO under the name Bosh Bosh Inc.
