In 2007, ACL conducted a community assessment of children condition in three of war affected communities in Margibi County. The outcome of the assessment was  grossly heartbreaking. In 26 of 28 homes visited we saw between 2 - 6 children that were naked and not in school. Most of the parents of these children were either killed in the war or unemployed. A few of them work as local farmers and backyard garden owners. About 90% of children live under constant threat of sickness and death because of the lack of health facilities, clothes and constant exposure to cold. Children are vulnerable and susceptible to exploitation every day.


ACL intervention is designed to help bridge the gap that potentially impedes their access to education and good health care. ACL has been able to establish  collaboration and partnership with Human Right Based, Pro-Democracy, Educational and Child Development organizations. Yet, with the presence of these groups, the condition of children continue to get worst.


By mid 2008, ACL was able to ship the first consignment of clothes, books and toys under the theme: "LET THEM SMILE AGAIN". The campaign involves collection of clothes, toys, books, food items and medicine for vulnerable children in post war Liberia. Every year, ACL ships consignment of items for children.


Working along with a local pro-democracy partner organization, Civic Education and Good Citizenship Movement (CEGCM), ACL conducted awareness and education forums in 6 Districts in Liberia, to help develop community leaders' and parents' understanding of the importance of helping their children, as that is a civic responsibility.  ACL has so far distributed clothes, books and toys among more than 2,000 children in need.

ACL plans to construct a Multi Complex Safe Home (Child Development Center) to provide an environment that will develop their human potential, teach them life skills and empower them for nation building.


The center is designed to have 200-beds boarding, academic and vocational schools, computer lab, state-of-the-art Library, recreational and health care centers, including a shopping center. Presently, we are seeking sponsorship to begin this construction.


Please donate to this worthy cause.
