In 1989 a terrible war engulfed Liberia and thousands of individuals fled to safety. Some sought comfort in the USA, while others found sanctuary in Europe and elsewhere. Although thousands were displaced, many were left behind to suffer through the chaos that ensued. Today those that were fortunate enough to flee to safety have come back to rebuild the communties that were once abandoned.

Our philosophy is a bottom-up approach to participatory community engagement and development. We believe real positive change takes place at the local level on the ground and in the community.
Prosperity begins with the fundamental concept of value. The currency of value and the context in which it is exchanged and managed is crucial. Exploring human capital and it’s potential through creative means will allow honest expression and discovery. The building of self-confidence and self-esteem through trust and tangible skill sets are engines that initiate valuable economic ecosystems within the community.
We aim to transform the human condition through nurture, advocacy, and activism. This approach leads to tangible results and allow people to take immediate action on matters that concern them and even help contribute to beneficial actions on a wider societal scale.
