The 14-year civil war in Liberia affected all aspects of society, displacing thousands of families, disrupting the economy and destroying critical infrastructure. Following the war’s end, the country has struggled to repair socio-economic conditions, with 54% of the country still in poverty. Since 2010, Shelter for Life has implemented projects that include: public infrastructure reconstruction of bridges, latrines and roads; shelter and settlement services; access to finances through micro-grants; and vocational training in agricultural practice and business.
