We welcome you to join us in supporting:
The Summer Leadership & Vocational Pilot Program
For Youth in Liberia – July 15-August 16, 2009
Partnership with the Schools for the Blind and the Deaf

First, a little background:

Fourteen years of civil war brought destruction to Liberia's infrastructure, as well as displacement to thousands of families, leaving many children without parents, siblings, close relatives or hope for the future. As Liberia emerges from those dark days, and prepare to be a vibrant society once again, her youth find themselves being left behind, with nothing to occupy the time during school break for the entire summer and little or no opportunity to develop practical skills to enter the workforce.
Highlights of this program are:

  • Provision of free medical clinic services, exams, information, and networking for young people interested in the medical field.
  • Educational awareness programs on the prevention of teen pregnancy, AIDS, STDs and other infectious diseases
  • Introduction of local Radio/Television personalities and community leaders and mentors to the youth in meet and greet sessions. We hope to also present speakers who can encourage the youth to pursuing careers broadcasting, journalism, health and sciences.
  • Provision of computer classes to the youth, including word-processing, typing, filing, and basic office skills, as well as professional speaking.
  • Provision of cultural enrichment skills and training to include dancing, painting, singing, sewing and etc...

With this unique program, some students will also receive driver's education. The Summer Leadership program will work in close partnership with the Schools for the Blind and the Deaf, affording all participating students opportunities to learn how to make soap, braid hair, do carpentry, and tie-dying. The youth will also be encouraged to participate in a beautiful choir recently started by the program, and transportation will be provided for our youth to take field trips to Monrovia for additional enrichment.

It is our hope that you will identify with the goals of our mission and partner with us through gifts of material and/or monetary donations. Your gifts will be an integral part of our meeting the basic needs of our youth and supporting their development into the leaders of tomorrow. In fact, we want to encourage you to join us in Liberia, and see first hand how your donations are changing the lives of the youth that are served.

For more information or to make a donation, please contact the LACC (Rebecca Falika, President) via e-Mail at or, by phone at (703) 931 -0742 (U.S.) or 011-231-77016331 (Liberia).

Liberia, A Country In Transition

Currently moving forward from a time of transition, Liberia has for the past four years, together with international partners, worked to ensure a peaceful society and to revive its once thriving economy, but the long path of reconstruction remains a severe challenge. The Comprehensive Peace Agreement signed in Accra, Ghana, in 2003 still holds strong with the support of a 15,000 strong UN peacekeeping mission. The National Transition Government of Liberia (NTGL) was succeeded by peaceful legislative and presidential elections in October 2005, with Ellen Johnson Sirleaf becoming Liberia’s-and Africa’s-first democratically elected female head of state
