Support for the West Point Women in Liberia



This project supports a women's association based in the West Point Township in Liberia in addressing the humanitarian needs of its community, with special attention on women and children.

What is the issue, problem, or challenge?

The West Point Community is the largest slum community in Monrovia, situated on 0.36 kilometers of government-owned land with a population of about 62,000. Of this percentage, 45% are children, 35% are women and 15% men. The majority of the population lives off of subsistence fishing and petty trade. The West Point Women for Health and Development Organization is dedicated to tackling the many problems faced in our community, including gender-based violence, illiteracy, and care for children.

How will this project solve this problem?

The West Point Women are dedicated to tackling problems in their community through activities including: economic empowerment, gender-based violence programs, conflict resolution and mediation, health and sanitation, and services for lost children.

Potential Long Term Impact

In the long term this project aims to improve and develop the West Point community, with a particular emphasis on women and children.
