One step ahead!! ROAD MAP 2020

Background

Since Liberia experienced the 15 years prolongs civil unrest, the chances of chaos, crimes, violence and addictiveness to elicit substance remain a huge challenge for former child soldiers (FCS), women associated with fighting forces (WAFF) and other war affected youths (WAY). Today, vast number of these young men and women are caught up with the use of illicit substance, violence and crime for living.

Project Update

The programme is constructing a vocational and technical institution called the Botanical Reintegration Village (BRV),  where the Target partners can find a safe environment, support and work.  Through this activity, the programme can make a larger impact which benefits both the target partners and the whole society. The BRV shall be able to host target partners for six months and give them all the necessary skills and support that they need.

As mentioned, the long term goal of the project is the empowerment of all Liberian former child soldiers. The project moves forward with laying out a road-map for the same. The project aims to be completed in three phases where phase one includes lays the foundation in terms of :

 

  1. Renovation of the building at the BRV.
  2. Placement of beds in the five rooms.
  3. Sustainable Electricity (maybe SolarCity)
  4. Cooking utensils and materials to use at the camp.
  5. Water (groundwater preparation).
  6. Preparation of farmland and agriculture activities.

 

The project aims at providing two major vocational and technical courses to the target partners in AGRICULTURE and GENERAL CONSTRUCTION in Phase 2 and 3.

The aim is that the BRV will provide the opportunity for IDEFOCS to reduce violence in the Communities; stop the re-recruitment of former child soldiers; help to work towards the goal to stop the migration of war in West Africa, and will promote peace and security.
