Like many countries in Africa, children in Liberia are victims of abuse and trafficking due to the country’s poverty and injustice. Consequently, these vulnerable children lack access to education, are often exposed to a variety of illnesses and disease, and are likely to never acquire any life or job skills needed to support themselves.
How We Help
In Liberia, (un)adopted® partners with REAP (Restoration of Educational Advancement Programs), a Liberian ministry, to implement Gospel-centered life skill camps for vulnerable youth and young adults. Camp participants receive career guidance, hands on learning opportunities, and Biblical teaching that prepare them for the transition from life in an institution to life on their own where they must provide for themselves. Through the camps, older orphans are given the opportunity to hear the Gospel, learn life skills, develop career awareness, and receive education that will sustain them and offer a healthy transition into productive adulthood. After each session, (un)adopted’s staff and partner on the ground continue discipleship of the participants to ensure they continue to grow as they implement what they learned at camp.
