  • Youth Crime Watch of Liberia in partnership with UNICEF Liberia is implementing a comprehensive Five-year Child Protection Programme called: “Let Us Learn Project” covering four centers in rural areas in Margibi County. This project targets, and establishes centers in Unification Town, Dolo’s Town, Charlesville, and Kakata with a significant impact on over 7,200 children and adolescents. The project kicked off on July 13, 2020, and it will run until December 2024. The primary objectives of the project are to prevent violence against children and mitigate the adverse effects of poverty, harmful traditional practices, and Sexual Gender-Based Violence (SGBV). A key focus area involves capacity building to ensure the protection of children and adolescents. The interventions planned under this project are to contribute to the reinforcement of community-based child protection mechanisms and systems. These measures enhance the care and protection of children, shielding them from violence, abuse, and exploitation.
