Story #2-Human Rights Workshop
About a week before we left Liberia, Aaron had the opportunity to conduct a workshop titled: The Role of Community Leaders in Community Development. The staff of the Human Rights Monitor of the Liberian Methodist Conference attended, as well as other Human Rights advocates in the community.
Discussions focused around how to partner with the government, and how/why to promote community service among leaders.
The participants were very open, had great questions, and also had great ideas to promote peace and advocacy throughout Liberia. It is our hope that they will take the information they received, and the ideas that they formulated and put them into action. We hope that their passion for their work will be met with local passionate leaders, so that their dream of a better Liberia will become a reality.
