Youth Action International is a US based organization working on issues of health, education and economic empowerment in post war African countries. With the ongoing fight against Ebola, the organization has dedicated all of its resources to kicking out Ebola in Liberia and Sierra Leone.

Funds raised from this initiative supports one of YAI's many efforts on the ground.


Food support for orphanages: As a result of the national focus on Ebola, most of government’s resources have been dedicated to the national crisis and orphanages reported difficulty getting subsidies and supplies for the upkeep of the children. In continuation of its long standing support for orphaned and abandoned children in Liberia, Youth Action International has extended its Ebola response to the provision of monthly food supplies to six orphanages in Monrovia.

Food support for teachers: In the wake of the Ebola crisis, the Liberian Government announced the indefinite closure of all schools. As a result, hundreds of teachers were left without a source of income. Youth Action International in collaboration with SprtyteLorianoGlobal has set a goal to provide food aid packages to a total of 108 teachers.

Beds for Liberia: With the numbers of new cases of Ebola rapidly increasing, containment centers have reported that they simply do not have enough beds. When launched, this program will target providing 1,000 beds to support Liberia’s fight against Ebola.

Community awareness programs: One of the key ways to reduce new cases of Ebola and preventing the spread if the disease is to ensure that all communities in Liberia have access to information about the disease and basic means to prevent infection.

YAI has formed a coalition of close to 75 organizations and community groups with a total membership of more than 1,500 people to carry out an unprecedented awareness campaign in Montserrado and Grand Bassa Counties.
