Camp for Peace Liberia Collaborates with 18 Youth Organizations to Celebrate International Youth Day
Camp for Peace Liberia collaborates with 18 youth organizations to celebrate International Youth Day 2018. The celebration which started on Saturday, August 11 brought together over 150 youths and volunteers from various organizations and communities in Montserrado and Margibi Counties. On Saturday morning they assembled at the Parker Paint junction to conduct a massive sweeping of the community, cutting grass and filling in cracks and holes on the main road from the Parker Paint junction to Coca Cola factory. The youth consider the road repair as high priority since cars and other vehicles do not move smoothly and so traffic congestion causes delay in traveling and movements. This was done to showcase the potential young people possess in contributing to national development.
This year’s celebration is being held under the theme, “Safe Spaces for Youth”. This theme promotes not only youth’s right to participate in decision-making processes, but also the role played by society and governments in creating and maintaining an environment that is safe for and inclusive of youth. Providing safe space enables young people to come together, engage in activities related to their diverse needs and interests, participate in decision making processes and freely express themselves. Camp for Peace Liberia and its networks seek to provide that space through a platform that motivates and teaches young people about their responsibilities, providing opportunities for civic engagement, and encouraging them to participate in Peace, Security and Development.For more on this story, please check below.

Message from the Director & Founder
Dear partners and friends,
On behalf of Camp for Peace Liberia, let me extend our sentiments and best wishes to all of you our many sympathizers, friends, sponsors, donors for your support rendered to our program in 2017. Had it not been of your assistant we wouldn’t have reached this far.
As you all may be aware, the year 2017 was a very busy year for Liberia. A year that witnessed a smooth transfer of power from one democratically elected government to another in more than 73 years. No one would ever believe that Liberia would have reached this far. There were scepticism and fear across different spectrums of our society that in the absence of the United Nations Mission in Liberia (UNMIL), the country would revert back to conflict especially when they had to go through electoral process.
