The program seeks to provide feeding, medical care, and support for young people living on the streets who are substance users in Liberia. The primary goal of the project is to provide free food for at least fifty (50) substance users in each of the seventeen political districts in Montserrado every Sunday during the first phase of the program, identify and recruit at least 100 substance every six months for rehabilitation at the program site set up outside of Montserrado.

The lack of free rehabilitation program in Liberia is creating a serious challenge for substance users in Liberia who are youths many of whom are ex-combatants. The failure of the Liberian Government and partners to properly cater to these young people is also creating a serious threat to national security. currently, there are over 77,000 drug users in the country with over 75% of them live on the street. These young people need food, medical attention, rehabilitation, and support.


The project will encourage and involve families and communities in the development and implementation of community-based prevention strategies in the project selected communities to ensure that the project is sustained. A well-structured and organized rehabilitation center will be set up to cater for beneficiaries who will be referred. The project will also adopt a youth to youth approach by promoting peer counseling, beneficiaries profiling, and strategic mobilization.

Long-Term Impact

We will provide rehabilitation for 500 substance users build their skills and ensure that they reintegrated into their communities as useful citizens, crime rate reduced. Liberia manpower will be sustained as a country.
