Blameless Faces Foundation is a charitable organization established in 2008 as a result of a brutal civil war in Liberia, West Africa (1989-2003). Approximately 300,000 adults and children killed, another 200, 0000 were displaced; essentially leaving many youths in orphanage/homeless. We focus on reducing high level poverty through our Educational and Behavioral Learning programs. Our organization had to be a part of something better; a side of humanity that allows us to make a positive impact in the lives of others. In conflicts, the victim and victimizer both become victims particularly when the overwhelming numbers are ‘innocent’ children. In this context, these are the Blameless Faces. MISSION: We Educate to reduce Poverty for disadvantage youths globally and to become a measuring rod by assisting them to live self-sufficient and dignified lives. Liberia - Unemployment avg 80-83% | Living Below Poverty 83.7% | Living in Severe Poverty 57.5% which equates to more than half of the population in Liberia, West Africa. Not much movement is being made to help this cause. Our youths are losing their hope/identity in these impoverished communities. Poverty though not a standalone, has a direct correlation to encouraging crimes and therefore, crime rate increases while the possibility of living longer decreases. HOW CAN YOU HELP: you can make donations through our site (as low as $5 and up) Volunteer your services or whatever you are comfortable with.
