Country: Liberia

Serving Liberia Through Lifeline

Like many countries in Africa, children in Liberia are victims of abuse and trafficking because of 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.

About Liberia

(un)adopted has two separate partnerships in Liberia but each serve their own unique roles in fulfilling the mission of (un)adopted. (un)adopted’s partners teach Life Skills to orphaned and vulnerable children while also managing the Orphanage Director Network — a group representing 35 orphanages that meets quarterly — and hosting countrywide Caregiver Conferences twice a year. In addition to teaching Life Skills, the partners run a sewing center where students can learn tailoring skills to use in the workforce.

How You Can 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.

We also partner with Pastor Destiny Newon and his organization, Hope in Action – Liberia.  Hope in Action has organized and manages the Orphanage Directors’ Network (ODN).  This is a network of directors that represent over 35 orphanages from all over Liberia.  They meet quarterly to serve and fellowship with one another, pray and worship together, talk about current issues affecting orphan care institutions, and facilitate vital training.  The ODN also provides a number of other valuable tools and resources to help orphanage directors provide the best care possible to their children.

Both of these amazing organizations share Lifeline’s ultimate goal of seeing vulnerable children reached with the gospel.
