THE STORY:

Liberia is a small country in West Africa that has just emerged from 14 years of civil war which destroyed the country's infrastructure, killed, maimed, and displaced hundreds of thousands of its citizens. Recently it has witnessed two civil wars, the Liberian Civil War (1989–1996), and the second Liberian Civil War (1999–2003), that have displaced hundreds of thousands and destroyed its economy.

Liberia is still one of the poorest countries in the world. Liberia has a collapsed state with a very small budget and enormous needs: 80% unemployment; extreme poverty with average earnings of $1 a day; no electricity; no landlines; no running water; no sewage system; unpaid police and little infrastructure. There are not sufficient funds in the state budget to address the massive needs in education. Unfortunately, though Liberia is the second oldest black republic in the world, no previous president has focused primarily on education. The entire country has depended on only two prominent universities for over 100 years to educate its 3.5 million people. Unfortunately, Liberia, the only country colonized by the USA by Africa, does not have a Public Library system.

These facts have obvious outcomes on the country’s population. Many Liberian children cannot read and write. In fact, Liberia is one of three countries in the world where young people are less educated than their parents. A country were 47% of elementary school teachers didn’t even graduate from high school. For more information on these challenges please visit www.YesLiberia.org/help
With your help, YesLiberia intends to change that by running several innovative and cost- effective projects across Liberia. Together we can make history and change the lives of many children and adults across the country.

Any support will help make an impactful difference beyond your imagination while making history within a country that values our beliefs and principles as Americans on many issues.

Should you any additional information, please feel free to contact us at 302-898-6338 or email us at contact@yesliberia.org. Thanks for your support in advance.

Sincerely,
Z. J. Jallah, Founder YesLiberia, Inc.
