The needs are enormous in Liberia, with much of the population living below the national poverty line.
Negative impacts of the civil crisis that ended in 2003 persist on many sectors of the country, presenting citizens with limited positive options to navigate challenges.
Liberia’s economy remains struggling with its poverty headcount ratio at $1.90 a day. The country largely depends on foreign aid.
Minimum attention to the agricultural sector leads to food insecurity, and poor nutritional practices at household level is a major factor hampering infant nutrition and growth.
In an effort to address some of these challenges, Concern Liberia continues to work with poor communities through the establishment of mother groups, community savings and loan associations, WASH committees, and Small Holders Farmers.
