Mission Statement

Children Better Way (CBW) currently operates in the Buduburam refugee camp located in Ghana. Under the motto "Let the children play", CBW operates a wide range of projects aimed to promote the rehabilitation and further development of the children who have been affected by the conflict in their home country of Liberia. The projects range from educational and recreational programs for the children themselves, to HIV/AIDS awareness and sanitation projects which benefit the wider community. The overall goal of Children Better Way, its volunteers and the people who donate is to not only provide quality services to these children now but to help prepare them to be future leaders of Liberia.

Description

Semeh Roberts started Children Better Way (CBW) in 1996 while he was still in Liberia. He saw a need to help the many children who were left behind because their parents were either killed or were forced to flee. When Roberts himself had to flee, he found himself at the Buduburam Refugee Camp. He was inspired to start a new chapter of Children Better Way in 2000 and continue the work he began in Liberia. The program has grown to include a pre-primary and primary school, offering first aid treatment and food and water for the students, a micro loan program, a computer school for the community, a community HIV/AIDS outreach program, a water and sanitation project, a community library and many more.
