Our Programs

Peace-Building and Awareness

· Free weekend seminars for teens and adults. Seminars inspire people to return to Liberia empowered to live together peacefully and contribute to the development of their country.

· On July 22, 2006, West Atlantic held a concert to raise awareness: “The Return of the Diasporian to the Native Land Liberia.” Proceeds supported technical training programs.
