Our Story

Background

During a fifteen-year (1989-2003) civil war, Liberians were reduced to a state of mind that inhibits hate in the minds of victims and a yearning for revenge against those who sponsored young rebel warlords who carried out wanton atrocities against innocent civilians. The trauma and shock have left generations of Liberians scarred from the experiences and voiceless at the same time.  Even after more than a two decades of relative peace, ordinary Liberians have not felt the economic gains touted by successive government. The majority remains in poverty and there is a growing desperation amongst the young population, causing many to result drug and alcohol abuse, gangsterism, and crime.  

The Voice of Liberia was founded in January 2005 and later registered as a 501(c )3 charitable organization in the State of New York.
