  • Global 3000 | Liberia - How a waste disposal project is creating new jobs

    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.

  • Gabriel Fernadez - 78% Of Liberia's Workforce Is In "Vulnerable Employment"

    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...

    This truly one of the most dangerous jobs I have ever been on. My partner and I lived with head hunters for ten days. Traveling over 2000 miles in a jeep all over the Ivory Coast in Liberia. I was happy to get out alive. It is that kind of story that ledges are made out of.

  • The Worst Job In New York: Immigrant America

    Subscribe to VICE News here: http://bit.ly/Subscribe-to-VICE-News Milking cows is a dirty, monotonous job, and as we found out in our latest episode of Immigrant America, it's not a job many unemployed Americans are willing to do. But for some reason the government doesn't give dairy farms a way to recruit foreign workers legally, so most feel forced to hire illegal immigrants. This makes the farms and their workers easy targets for immigration authorities looking to fill deportation quotas. We went to upstate New York to try to understand the cat and mouse game going on between dairy farms and immigration authorities. We found a lot of wasted taxpayer money, racial profiling, and a broken system that unnecessarily treats family farmers and hardworking immigrants like criminals. Read mor...

  • Liberia Mines Again - From Dream to Reality

    ArcelorMittal has helped Liberia to jumpstart its economy after being devastated by 14 years of civil conflict. Our Liberian iron ore mining project represents an important part of our business strategy. It is an opportunity to show how responsible and transparent business practices can benefit both the company and the host country, bringing about mutual understanding and trust, which in turn can further help to improve stability. Following a review of the Mineral Development Agreement (MDA) with the new Government of Liberia that was concluded on December 28, 2006, which called for an investment that would exceed US$ 1.0 billion, we set out on the task of rebuilding the country's mining infrastructure. Since the start of construction operations in 2006, ArcelorMittal Liberia has created...

  • UNICEF distributes up to 700,000 teaching and learning kits across Liberia

    After the Ebola outbreak in Liberia was contained in June 2015, many parents in Liberia, having been out of jobs for many months, did not have enough money to buy all the required school material, especially sufficient number of copy books, pens and other essential materials. With support from USAID, UNICEF has procured hundreds of thousands of items of basic supplies that will help schools to function, and students to attend school and improve learning outcomes. The distribution of close to 700,000 teaching and learning materials to 4,460 schools for the 2015/2016 school year has just ended all around the country, putting smiles on the faces of many children-and their parents too!
