Run For Change
We are on a mission to help Liberia’s youth discover & develop their natural talents so that they can positively impact their communities.
The BYRF is developing six clean water stations in the rural areas outside of the Liberian towns of Kolhun, Yekepa, Gbanga, Tapeta, the rainforest village of Zwedru and the western coastal town of Harper. Each of these locations present l clean water issues that need to be resolve based on water sources, contamination levels,
population needs and many other crucial factors. With nearly 30% of Liberia’s land covered in rain forest, BRYF also seeks to create up to a half dozen rainwater collection sites. Rainwater by nature is already purified water, so the creation of these sites effectively saves resources that would usually be used towards filtration and distribution efforts.
The peer mentor program is designed to teach the youth the importance of the power of collaborative efforts. Students are able to encourage each other, form strong long last bonds in a non-intimidating environment while not only improving their own literacy, but also helping their peers to excel academically as well. In the peer mentoring program, we also send out trained soldiers to war, but our war is fought with pen and papers, and our cause is literacy. Mentors work within the school system to battle illiteracy and improve learning opportunities. Where possible, we utilize the best resources available: fellow students
