THE STORY:

CENTER FOR SACRED STUDIES MORNINGSTAR FOUNDATION wrote -

"The National Patriotic Front of Liberia (NPFL) captured me as child soldier at the age of 12 and my parents were killed right before  my eyes. This really got me angry and  wanted to revenge on everyone who came on my way. I missed my parents so much and I got traumatized and felt that there was no hope for me. I got involved with drugs and alcohol. But after going through series of trauma healing training, I finally decided to go to school to acquire skills to help my community and myself. Thanks to all our sponsor for making me human being again”. (Pewee Flomo).

Yes friends, these atrocities are part of many a young child's life in Liberia.  The purpose of this campaign is to allow 25 former child soldiers to attend a 1 year residential training program.  This is $1000 per child and includes food, housing and all school expenses.

The Camp for Peace Liberia is founded by a former child soldier, Abel Learwellie, who has seen much suffering and pain of those recruited and made to commit atrocites under the influence of drugs and other bad substances.

The overall goal of this project is to rehabilitate 5,000 former child soldiers, ex-combatants and other vulnerable youth through vocational education to full economic and social participation, transforming them from an ongoing challenge into a considerable asset to their communities.

Camp for Peace wants to extend thanks to its partners and friends in the US and Canada for helping to send our youth to school. It is our hope that this collaborative effort will yield more results in providing peace, security, justice and reconciliation in Liberia.
