Small steps towards a big renaissnce for Liberia

Burnt-out buildings and torn-up roads still scar Monrovia, Liberia’s capital, eleven years after the civil war that paralyzed the West African country for more than two decades. There are even more serious casualties from the years of conflict: in addition to the human suffering, the victims included the economy, education, knowledge, and skills. In this resource-rich country, exports came to a halt, and business owners fled, taking assets and expertise with them. Today, Liberia remains one of the world’s poorest countries.
