Sujoyini supported the Ministry of Gender and Development (MoDG) this summer in Liberia to define the next 5-year strategic plan that will be incorporated into the country's development and poverty reduction agenda. She analyzed current gender empowerment programs in place which included micro and small enterprise growth projects, as well as, women and girls' literacy training and capacity building. This incorporated defining project timelines to implement the different projects and ensuring that a sustainable capacity had been in place to manage such projects, with the ultimate aim of promoting gender development as a tool for development and poverty alleviation.
