YesLiberia

  • 4 people are interested

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 and only African country with an elected 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. And doing this means we need your support through virtual volunteering, ideas, time, talent, and skills.

At YesLiberia, we give potential volunteers and supporters the option to decide on the best way they can help. In other words, you know yourself better than we know you. It only makes sense to talk to one of our staff members, learn about our various volunteering opportunities, and then decide on the opportunities that match your skills, passion, or experience. Currently, we are looking for an experienced Grant Writing Volunteer, a webmaster, a Financial Reporting Analyst, and a public Relations Officer . Please apply ASAP.

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.
