Another big boost for Liberia as 24 potential youths graduate from the farmer resource agricultural training center in Salayea, Lofa County.
24 out of 30 students (17 females and seven males) have graduated from the Camp for Peace Agricultural Vocational Training Program in Salayea, Lofa County. The Agricultural vocational training program is one of the premier programs run by Camp for Peace Liberia. The program aims to transform and empower Liberian Youth in solving Liberia’s problem. The program was held on Friday, September 13, in Salayea Town.
Hon. Alexander S. Gargu serving as the keynote speaker of the occasion, underscored the importance of agriculture in enhancing Liberia’s social and economic development. Hon. Gargu said Liberia is endowed with a favorable agriculture environment, yet its citizens live in poverty. He, therefore, used the occasion to challenge the graduates to put the knowledge and skills they have acquired into use. He said, spell nothing but to make maximum use of the skills and aim at enhancing food security in Liberia. He described food insecurity as when the people cannot feed themselves. He stated that Liberia is still buying almost everything, including peppers, bitterboy, eddoes, and other essential food from its labor. He ascribed Liberia’s problem to the corrupt attitude of past and present government officials. He, therefore, challenged all officials in both public and private spaces in Liberia to take caution of accountability and transparency in moving Liberia development forward.

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.
