Youth Network for Reform
Youth Network for Reform (YONER-LIBERA), a Legal Youth Development Organization in Liberia, was established principally to reunite communities and civil war enemies by providing basic services to support child soldiers and child victims of the war who had turned youth, aimed at healing the wounds created by the long 14 years civil war through development and empowerment programs to have them reintegrated into the society as useful and productive citizens. Over the nine years, the organization has held true to its foundation a Mission to undertake actions that nurture and build honest and able leaders to become self-reliant and agents of positive change within their communities. YONER-LIBERIA envisions a just and developed society where all children and youth will live freely and receive support and opportunities to realize their full potential without any form of discrimination.
