Website Developer (Wordpress)
This is one organization where volunteers gain more knowledge while volunteering. For instance, did you know that Liberia was the only African country founded by freed slaves from the USA in 1847? Did you know Liberia has the same flag as the USA but with one star? Did you know that more than 60% of Liberia's past presidents were Americans? Did you know Liberia is also the first African country to elect a female president? BUT DID YOU ALSO KNOW THAT LIBERIA IS ONE OF TWO COUNTRIES IN THE WORLD WHERE YOUNG PEOPLE ARE LESS EDUCATED THAN THEIR PARENTS?
YesLiberia intends to build on these facts by helping disadvantaged children in Liberia. We cannot do this without your skills and support through virtual volunteering. Currently, we are looking for a volunteer Website Developer (frontend or backend) with experience in Wordpress, Plugin, API, Automation or Integration. If this sounds like you, please consider fitting us in your busy schedule to help us achieve our goals. Volunteers for any or all of our positions work virtually (work on your own time, and work at a comfortable pace).

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.
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.
