Reasons for our involvement in the Liberian community in the U.S.A. and especially in Minnesota, Minneapolis, senior citizen programs; In order to make adult Liberians’ lives useful in the U.S.A., they must meet expectation as all American adults. Some may be useful in providing labor services. Many are doing childcare and, therefore, must understand child protection laws, as well as the healthcare system and policies. They must be able to interact with other senior citizens in the community—Adults Day Programs.
Programs for Liberian refugee children. It has been observed that Liberian children find it difficult to transition in the American society when they come here from a war-affected country. To keep up with the American school system has been a serious challenge. The language is another reason, which is why we find it necessary to help the Liberian students in this community. Liberian children also need to know and understand the American legal system, coupled with law and order.
