We believe Liberia is in the midst of a profound political, economic, and cultural transformation, following decades of civil war and unrest—emerging as a beacon of hope and a model for successful development in West Africa. Humanity United has supported Liberia’s transformation since 2007, committing more than $6 million in grants related to building good governance, strengthening civil society and independent media, increasing rural access to justice, and promoting job creation.
