Programs and results

What we aim to solve

SOURCE: Self-reported by organization

Due to the lasting impacts of the string of civil wars, Liberia has a disproportionate number of leaders who are experts or have recognized credentials to manage, lead, and/or communicate the technical, educational, and business acumen to rebuild and advance the country, specifically in the foundational areas of Healthcare, Education and entrepreneurship.

Liberia Forward Health Care Clinic

In Liberia, one child dies every 20 seconds from a disease that could have been prevented by a vaccine. Furthermore, 50% of the country lives below the national poverty line. As a tenet to the fundamental needs of humans, Liberia Forward Health Care Team (LFHC) will deliver high quality, culturally sensitive, comprehensive primary and preventative care. We will also provide supportive services such as health education, translation, and transportation that promote access to health care.
