Learn a Skill

Under this project, Humanity First Liberia has established a Computer institute where it offers low cost quality computer education and also provide scholarships to orphans and needy.

Humanity First Liberia (HFL) launched its very first computer school on January 22, 2007 in Monrovia, Liberia in cooperation with Humanity First Institute of Computer Studies (HFICS). HF efforts have enabled the purchase and shipment of computers to Liberia, and the development of course curriculum, ultimately sowing the seeds of a professional IT team. The hope is that students of the computer school will use their new skills to support themselves and their families.

In pursuit of the educational goals and aspirations of Liberia’s technical advancement as outlined by Hon. Yonton Kesselly, Liberia’s Assistant Minister or Professional and Technical Education, HFL’s objective in launching such a program is to introduce professional computer and technological training.

Valued at $25,000 US the five-year computer and technology training program enrolled 90 students at the very outset of its opening. It is expected that lot of Liberians will benefit from this institute and become productive citizens.

Agriculture

Humanity First Liberia has recently established a Cassava Processing Plant which will enable farmers to bring cassava to be processed into Farina and other by-products.

Humanity First Liberia officially inaugurated its first Cassava Processing plant in Lyean town, Dewon District, Bomi County on Saturday, February 07, 2009. The program was attended by the Liberian Information Minister, Dr. Laurence Bropleh, who served as the keynote speaker, Executives and Volunteers of Humanity First Liberia, elders and citizens of Bomi County.

The project is funded by Humanity First USA, and has the capacity to produce 20 bags of grated cassava per hour. There is a full facility of pressing, fermenting and patching the garted cassava to become farina. The pant will serve Lyean town and all surrounding towns by processing their cassava into Farina and other by products.

 

Health Care

Humanity First Liberia has been carrying our medical camps in Montserrado, Bomi and Cape Mount counties. Hundreds were given Free treatment by a team of Medical Doctors, nurses and other HF Volunteers in three counties of Liberia: Montserrado, Bomi and Cape Mount.

Relief items:
Since the 1980’s Liberia has been through a cycle of bloody civil war. Many of the poorer communities have been deeply impacted with the instability of the situation and lack of basic human necessities.
