Project Report | May 1, 2023
More amazing people and new initiatives

By Action10 | Volunteer

Background

The world watched as Liberian kids as young as 10 years old were exploited as armed combatants. Under threat of death, they committed terrible acts of violence against the Liberian society. Many turned to substance abuse to cope with their experiences. In partnership with IDEFOC, our program named Botanical Reintegration Village aims to provide groups of former child soldiers a three-month program to help them recover from their trauma and obtain the skills necessary for social reintegration.

Project update

Recently, we have expanded our amazing group of people working in Liberia to support the important efforts by our partners to help reintegrate former child soldiers in the society. Finding people with the right motivation is not always easy and it is cruical for us to work with people that are interested in sustainable long-term solutions. Hence, we want to be diligent when involving more people in the organisation and with our partners.

Moreover, we are in discussion of launching another project aimed to help parents fund their child's/children's tuition. This will be done by offering lending as well as employment opportunities which can hopefully offer a sustainable source of funding to make sure that children get the education that they deserve.

Thank you for your contributions!
