PRIORITY

High priority on the agenda is the issue of reintegration of ex-combatants into civilian society. Studies have estimated that as more than 60 percent of men and boys in Liberia are veterans. Big worrying thing is the fighters that started the war as children and are now young adults. They only know war, what will happen to them? The foundation knows that a commitment to all veterans, including the child-soldiers, means guaranteeing dignity and fairness for all of them and security for the whole nation. Like so many in other war troubled regions, when the dust settles will they re-socialise or revert to type and become armed robbers or maybe carry on fighting the government? All ex-fighters, from any fraction, need training and education to rediscover the values of life. To do so, they need productive employment and housing if they are joining Liberia in the reconciliation process and reconstruction of our country.


OBJECTIVES

“The DAMATE PEACE FOUNDATION is committed to creating global awareness of the hopeless position of all (young)victims of war and violence throughout Liberia and its neighboring countries. Through diverse activities, initiatives and special events it is the goal of the Foundation to raise funds and support in order to raise the quality of the young victim’s lives at present and to improve their perspectives for a better, peaceful and self-sustaining future and to make sure that other children don't have to pass through this violence.”


TASK

  1. Attract international donors to support programs for ex-combatants.
  2. Cater the welfare and need of all ex-combatants especially the young soldiers regardless of fractions, religious background or tribal origin.
  3. Provide human resource development and technical training to ex-combatants; enabling them to become good and productive citizen of Liberia.


GOAL

    Serve as a basic institution for experimentation in cash crops development for small and medium skill agro-farmers throughout Liberia:

  1. to advise local farmers in cash crops management in the areas of rice, coffee, cocoa, banana, cassava, potatoes, etc.,
  2. to train individual farmers locally and aboard using scientific methods in cash crops production,
  3. to engage into reforestation of our forest products and to improve agricultural projects in other counties.
