ABOUT THE COUNTRY

After a 14-year Civil War that ended in 2003, the small, coastal African country of Liberia is in a state of post-war recovery.  The Liberian people are struggling to rebuild their lives after having almost everything taken away from them by the gruesome war.  Many lost family members as over 8% of the country was killed, and most of the doctors, teachers and highly educated fled the country.  Even after 10 years of peace, the vast majority of Liberians still do not have electricity or running water, and many children do not have access to adequate education or health care.  Nonetheless, Liberia is a beautiful country.  Liberia has amazing beaches, a rich supply of minerals and forests, and a great climate for agriculture.

THE PROGRAM

For many children in Liberia, attending school is not an option.  Often there are no schools where the child lives, and the long walks to “nearby” schools (often miles away) can be very dangerous.  Even if there are schools in proximity, many families cannot afford to send their child, as they are struggling just to eat one meal a day.  Also, many children are relied upon to work during the day to help the family survive.  Currently, VisionTrust Liberia has six schools (child development centers) across the country that strive to offer a caring, holistic, growing environment.  Hundreds of orphans and impoverished children are being given nutritious meals, care for their health, a quality education, and spiritual mentorship.  Many precious Liberian lives are being transformed and children are being developed into future leaders who can have an exponential impact for good throughout Liberia.

MEET OUR LOCAL HERO

Robert, the Liberia Country Director

Robert Sondah, his wife, and their four boys have experienced first-hand the turmoil of the Liberian Civil War. Twice, they fled for their lives and sought refuge in the Ivory Coast. Robert recognizes children as Liberia’s future leaders and hopes the Lord will use VisionTrust to give them a firm foundation in Christ and reshape the future of the country.
