WANEP LIBERIA - Building Relationships for Peace

WANEP-Liberia is a logical response to the complex web of conflicts (including the bloodiest civil war in the sub region) that have permeated and continue to challenge the national fabric and existence of Liberia. Violent conflicts, manifesting as ethnic, resources based, political and communal, became constant feature because of exacerbating structural dysfunctional ties inherent in the Liberian system. The casualties of the civil war and other pockets of armed conflicts are alarming – over 6 to 8 thousand Liberians have lost their lives, several hundred thousand displaced and properties worth billions of dollars destroyed. These are major challenges to a traumatized society; yet to recover from protracted civil war occasioned by armed rebellion and the attendant human rights abuses, political victimization and marginalization.
