We’ve all been outraged by heinous atrocities born by girls and women trapped in war zones around the world. The time to ACT is long overdue. JOIN US…. to make an immediate, impactful difference in the lives of Liberian girl and women survivors of brutal, gender-based sexual violence used as a tool of war during the country’s 14 year Civil War. Child rape, prostitution and trafficking remains rampant in post-conflict Liberia.

The Women and Youth Leadership Alliance (WAYLA)
will send the first of several teams of mental health and holistic healthcare practitioners to the Restoration Girls Wellness Center in Monrovia, Liberia in the spring of 2011.
Girls’ Wellness Center goals are:

~ TREATMENT:
Provide wellness services to girls and women who are survivors of gender-based
sexual violence, child prostitution and human trafficking

~ LOCAL CAPACITY BUILDING:
Train and certify Liberian women to provide holistic wellness
services to girls and women in their own communities and/or become small scale organic
medicinal herb growers and herbal product producers

~ POVERTY/TRAFFICKING PREVENTION:
Create jobs in fields of affordable alternative medicine and
organic medicinal herb farming that provide girls and women with viable economic alternatives to
trafficking and child prostitution.
