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.
