Societal Problems

During the fifteen-year (1989-2003) civil war, Liberians were reduced to a state of mind that inhibits hate in the minds of victims and revenge against those who carried out wanton mayhem against innocent civilians. The trauma and shock have left most Liberians scarred from the experiences and voiceless at the same time.

Even after more than a decade of relative peace, many ordinary Liberians have not felt the economic gains and government policies have failed to produce much needed jobs, quality healthcare, and education. Corruption and nepotism have hindered nation-building and national healing, leaving ordinary folks, mostly especially women and children, at the mercy of politicians, who have benefited immensely from illegally gotten wealth.

Youth Awareness & referral services

The youth of Liberia are the most venerable today in our society. According to official CIA world fact book statistics, the majority (77.4%+) of youths are poor and dependent on others for survival. Overall unemployment rates stands at 85% (2003 est).

With little or no skills and the lack of awareness programs, youths are the most vulnerable to the tramping’s of corruption, through which those with resources buy their loyalty and send them out in the streets to protest on a politician or political party whims.

Also, because of the level of poverty and the lack of opportunity for youth population,
  • young women are today openly selling sex around Monrovia and around other major urban centers to support themselves and their families. The practice is not only demeaning; it creates a perpetual cycle of sexual violence and enslavement.
  • young men who are unable or unwilling to engage in male prostitution revert to petit crimes, which in turn leads to drugs usage and addiction, further creating a societal problem of substance abuse and homelessness.
  • The lack of opportunity has resulted in entrenched illiteracy amongst youths, minimal employable skills. Literacy skills and technological training workshops will enable more Liberians to empower themselves to start small business and jobs in the local economy.
