Who We Are

WHY LIBERIA?

During the decades of Civil War, the entire infrastructure of electricity, roads, and water sanitation were destroyed. Even now, after10 years of relative peace, there is no public electricity outside a very small portion of the Captial City of Monrovia. The country has no pipe-borne water or sanitary sewers anywhere.

The statistics are staggering:

  • 83% unemployment
  • 47% illiteracy rate
  • 23.8% of children die before age 5
  • 1 in 11 women die in childbirth
  • 68% of families survive on a dollar a day or less.
  • The level of destruction done to the Liberian society during the war continues to have very real effects to this day, but there is hope.

    Will you partner with us to change the future of Liberia?
