Liberia Village

Liberia Village

Freed American slaves began settling on the West African coast in 1822. In 1847, Liberia was declared an independent republic—Africa's first—under a constitution modeled on that of the United States. William Tubman, president from 1944-71, did much to promote foreign investment and to bridge the economic, social, and political gaps between the descendants of the original settlers and the native Liberians. After many years of civil war, Liberia held democratic elections in late 2005 and elected Africa’s first female president, Ellen Johnson Sirleaf.

If you were to travel by car from the Roberts International Airport to the capital city of Monrovia, you would pass right by the Rafiki Training Village Liberia. The Village is just off the main road about half a mile from the beach and is surrounded by agricultural fields, jungle, and swampland. Twenty-one buildings house the educational and residential facilities of the Village residents. Established in 2007 on fifty acres of land, the Village offers hope and help to this war-torn and impoverished nation.
