Until recently,the Liberian capital Monrovia did not have a single official waste dump. For many years,the country was in the grip of a civil war ...that destroyed much of the city's infrastructure and claimed the lives of some 200,000 people. For the past five years,there has been a fragile peace,but many traces of the war remain. One year ago,a waste disposal project was finally started in Monrovia. The project is now creating many badly needed jobs.

Presidential candidates for the October 10th Liberia elections have promised to revive the economy and provide jobs – subjects that topped the second debate on Monday.

The only female contender in the race, MacDella Cooper, wants to tap into other lucrative sectors. "I want to focus on the agriculture industry, the eco-tourism and also the fishery industry.

Ellen Johnson Sirleaf, Liberia's president and Africas first female democratically elected leader, is seen as the darling of the West. Her commitment to tackle corruption and lift war-torn Liberia out of poverty has won her international support. But, as Al Jazeera's Haru Mutasa reports, a report released on Monday by Liberia's Truth and Reconciliation Commission, which she set up, could damage her clean image.
Gabriel Fernandez, Liberia's National Social Protection Coordinator, says his country has made economic gains since its civil war but lack of job skills force many workers into informal sector jobs and "vulnerable employment." Liberia has just emerged from 14 years of civil war, so the state is still fragile. The country has made tremendous economic improvements under its new president, particularly achieving debt cancellation and creating institutions to help job creation. However, Liberia still faces a major youth unemployment problem. Many young workers are unskilled and lost out on their educational opportunities because of the civil war, and are often forced into informal sector jobs. Nearly 90% of Liberia's workforce is in the informal sector, with another 77.9% in "vulnerable em...

Liberia is one of the countries in the world that uses child labor in rubber production. It’s the country’s largest export and largest employer. On its rubber plantations, many children work long hours, under dangerous conditions. They're denied the right to a basic education. A project funded by the U.S. Department of Labor (ARCH project) is working to remove children from this hazardous work and put them in school. Why should America continue to invest in child labor elimination projects in Africa?

Liberia's final presidential debate took place on Tuesday in Monrovia with only 3 candidates out of 20. All candidates proposed solutions to solve the nation’s unemployment problems ahead of the October 10 elections as they participated in a final debate marked by the absence of key candidates, George Weah of the opposition and Vice President Joseph Boakai. Twenty people are contesting to replace President Ellen Johnson Sirleaf, to lead a country that is still recovering from the 2014 Ebola outbreak with scars from a protracted war. The candidates, including the only female contender in the race, MacDella Cooper of the Liberia Restoration Party, want to tap into other lucrative sectors such as agriculture. Alexander Cummings of the Alternative National Congress has promised to create ...

Young students of the Rotary Interact Club of the DeSoto High School in Texas is partnering with Change Agent Network to build a sister school in Liberia to help break the cycle of poverty in that country. Today the students of DeSoto High School which is about 90% black intercity school, had a special event to create awareness and fundraise to take on the challenge of building a new school encompassing from 1st through grade 12th in RobertsPort, Liberia. These are young high schoolers with no jobs, paychecks or bank accounts but they definitely have a big heart to change the world. I believe a lot of adults can learn from the extraordinary example of these intercity school kids. In the last ten years of my life and work in America, it has been very frustrating and disappointing for me ...
