With Your Help

We will:

Revive the cultural heritage of Liberia and promote awareness of the richness of Liberian culture to the widest possible audience.

 

Teach children a sense of identity, dignity and national pride through Liberian culture.

 

Use theatre and dance to create awareness about issues relevant to the communities in which they live such as HIV/AIDS, teen pregnancy and drug abuse.

 

Enhance youth’s IT knowledge allowing them to connect with their peers in other parts of the world.

 

Encourage peace, harmony, discipline and unity among all Liberians through traditional songs, dance, drama and storytelling.
