Monrovia's HundrED GLocal To Explore The Challenges And Opportunities in Technical And Vocational Education


We know there is a huge cry to increase support to Technical & Vocational Education (TVET) worldwide and that innovators in the sector are challenged by the lack of adequate opportunities to make their innovations go global or to attract investment. After the success of the HundrED Glocal in Karachi (Pakistan), we invite you to join the HundrED Community on Thursday, October  17th at the HQ of Youth Network for Positive Change to discuss trending issues relating to Technical & Vocational Education. Innovators from the Liberian TVET sector and across the world will present ways that we can prioritise and increase support towards TVET innovations.

Technical and Vocational Training (TVET) has become increasingly important for education communities worldwide because of the growing demand for skills-based learning and 21st-century skills. We, at HundrED, are committed to sharing ideas and innovations that meet the needs of students today and ensure that they are well-equipped for success in the future. Our report on Technical and Vocational Education & Training (TVET) is a call to action for change in education to highlight the opportunities and advantages of TVET. 

With the help of our Ambassador Leo E. Tiah and Youth Network for Positive Change, we bring you HundrED Glocal in Monrovia with workshops that highlight innovations working in this space. Presenters will share meaningful ideas that will bring about growth, development, and call for increased support towards TVET. Together we will work to broadly implement educational practices that teach our students to engage and connect.

There will be a total of six presentations at the event, 3 by local educators/innovators and 3 by global innovators recognized by HundrED. 

We are happy to share that the local presentations will be made by Leo E. Tiah, Executive Director at Youth Network for Positive Change, Nupaul Kortu- Juice production machine. as well as Diamond Halie; a 7-grade student at FM Ries, on his innovation, Paper Architectural Acts Design

From the HundrED Community, the global presentations will be made by Maker Academy - Kidspire from Vietnam, Youth Made Initiative from Malaysia and CommunityShare from the United States.
