A Summer Camp in Support of the Liberia Library Project
Produced and Sponsored by Sehwah-Liberia and the Sixth Region Diaspora Caucus (SRDC)

Overview

The Liberian Summer Cultural Exchange Program will recruit 84 high school students. This includes students born of families from different countries in Africa, and the descendants of kidnapped Africans in the Diaspora.

The students will learn the necessary skills to become specialists doing effective research in the area of their choice. The finished product will be utilized as exhibits in the 21st Century Liberian Library Project Facility.

This cultural interaction will broaden the students’ view and vision of Africa, leading to more effective communication, along with developing skills in project management, compromise/consensus, negotiation, decision making and problem solving.

The success and completion of the Pilot Summer Cultural Exchange Program will lead to a trip to Liberia for the students who complete this summer program successfully. They would then become a part of the first phase of building the Library in Monrovia, Liberia (scheduled for completion by the year 2027). The Library will be the cornerstone of information accessible to Africans around the world in search of our common history and culture.
