About Us

RICCE works to empower rural communities to take charge of their destinies.

Our work in rural communities covers a range of programs including; Food Security, Gender Equality and Women Empowerment, Environmental Safety  and  Biodiversity Conservation,  Income Generation Activities, Peace Building and Reconciliation, etc.

We have worked across the 15 counties of Liberia with our work effecting hundreds of rural people’s lives and influencing many policy recommendations. 

Our Core Programmes

Across Liberia, thousands of people depend on agriculture for their livelihood. A major challenge for farmers is the lack of access to finance, tools, and seeds which impedes their productivity. To feed the growing population which continuously increasing -Liberia needs to boost agricultural production.

Our Food Security and Livelihood Development programme is designed to strengthen food security and livelihood opportunities in underserved rural communities. READ MORE

The Liberian civil war ended in 2003, but the scars of that conflict still endure. Despite global efforts to help Liberia peacefully rebuild post-war, there are still some ethnic and political tensions in parts of Liberia. These tensions often flare up and result in violence against marginalized groups and the destruction of property.

This programme is aimed at preventing and managing conflicts at the national and community levels. READ MORE

Gender equality and women empowerment is a topic that has been discussed for decades. Liberian women have been fighting to be treated as equals to men. They have been fighting for their rights, their opportunities, and their voice.

Our gender equality and women empowerment programme is dedicated to promoting women’s rights and access to empowerment opportunities. READ MORE

Rural income generation is a major issue in Liberia. The country has a high rate of unemployment and the majority of its population lives below the poverty line.

The rural population in Liberia is the most marginalized group in the country. They are often unemployed, illiterate, and live below the poverty line.

There is a huge need for facilitation and capacity building in Liberia. It is an important part of the socio-economic development processes of Liberia. It is helping vulnerable and marginalized groups build their skills, become more employable, and create sustainable organizations or businesses.
