The Liberian Civil War has come to an end. Yet rape of Liberian girls and women is still used as a weapon. The International Rescue Committee reports:
12 % of girls aged 17 and under report having suffered sexual violence
28 % of cases treated by Doctors Without Borders involve children aged 4 or younger,
33 % involve children aged 5 through 12.
61% of gender-based sexual violence cases involve children aged 12 or under

The Women and Youth Leadership Alliance (WAYLA) sends teams of women Holistic and Mental Health practitioners to treat girls and women who have survived gender-based sexual violence to the Restoration Girls Wellness Center in Monrovia, Liberia

  1. I am very grateful to the Women and Youth leadership Alliance for this worthwile venture and would like to become a part of this. I have worked in the field of social services for almost 21 years, with all types of social challenges and backgrounds. I believe my experience and knowledge would be of use regarding this major crisis in Liberia.

    I am sorry that I could not attend the meeting today, 10/23, in New York, but would love to be involve in future trainings and meetings. Please include me on your list of interested individuals and note my email as well. I look forward to hearing from you. Thank you.

    I am enthralled to know of an organization that shares my common vision. I am a Liberian native who has been practicing as a mental health clinician for ten years in Maryland. It has always been my vision to provide services to the post civil war survivors particularly women. Most importantly provide training to women “on the ground” in Liberia on how to cope with the impact of the war particularly on their psyche. I also would eagerly like to be involved in this venture and look forward to hearing from you.
