YesLiberia

This is one organization where volunteering will also give you an excellent opportunity to learn about a country rich in history and progress. For instance, did you know that Liberia is the only African country founded with the help of freed slaves from the USA? Or that Liberia is the first African country to elect a female president? Liberia is also one of only two countries in the world where young people are less educated than their parents. Let’s change this fact together from the comfort of your home!

Currently, we are looking for volunteers with excellent experience skills. Whether your writing experience is professional emails, blogging, newsletters, and storytelling; you can use your help. We will give you access to stories, audio file describing an activity or an outcome for you to writing very brief blogs or announcements about it once per week. Your writing will be very important because it be shared with all of our volunteers, sponsors, supporters, donors, and staff. It may also be posted on our website.

Here are some suggested topic or ideas you might be writing about from the comfort of your home:

  1. The importance of volunteering for/with our organization.
  2. Why donate to YesLiberia, Inc.
  3. Student of the Week
  4. Our Success Stories
  5. Donor of the month
  6. Our Fundraiser Event/Activities
  7. Our Awards or travels
  8. Upcoming Events

If you are interested, please contact us ASAP. Thanks!

Mission Statement

Our mission is to empower young people through meaningful service learning opportunities in education, healthcare, and technology. We do this through strategic partnerships and learning models to utilize existing youth habits and uphold societal values in the communities we work.

Description

Conviction created YesLiberia. Daily the needs of underprivileged are ignored. We ignore their struggles because it’s easier to deal with the more important things in our lives-- like climbing the corporate ladder and saving money so we don’t become indigent. And some of us ignore their challenges because they bring back unpleasant memories we seek to repress. But disregarding the plight of the underprivileged yields no resolution. Then certain things happen to remind us their struggles exist no matter how hard we try to pretend our needs surpass theirs.

Jallah was convicted by several of those things over a short period of time. The prostitution of children in Thailand reminded him of Liberia. The rape and war in Congo reminded him of Liberia. The genocide in Rwanda reminded him of Liberia. He remembered his underprivileged past--a past where he was seen as less than elite based on his tribal and economic status and where his education came as a gift from the United Methodist Church.

Reminded, he became convicted to act and YesLiberia was founded to educate and help underprivileged Liberians whose plight he intimately understood.

YesLiberia is a 501c3 charity organization recognized by the Internal Revenue Service since July 2009. All donations are tax-deductible to the full extent allowable by law. YesLiberia is also registered at four government agencies in Liberia.
