Liberia

In cooperation with the United Nations Mission in Liberia (UNMIL), UNICEF and the UN Civil Unit, WYLN donated 40 computers and a large shipment of books to help develop local infrastructure and empower students in Liberia through increased access to information and increased exposure to modern technology.

On November 30th, WYLN President Sasha Toperich performed a humanitarian fund-raising concert in Monrovia for the Louis Arthur Grimes Law School. The concert was organized by the Special Representative of the UN Secretary General to Liberia, Jacques Paul Klein, and the interim President of Liberia, Charles Gyude Bryant.

The event raised $25,000 that was donated to educational development at Monrovia University. The concert was the first such event in Liberia in over 40 years and was broadcast live throughout the continent by UN radio.
