The President of the Republic, H.E. Dr. George Manneh Weah, will on Thursday, June 30, 2022, launch a national fund drive for the rehabilitation and empowerment of the country’s “at-risk youth”, popularly known as “zogoes”.

   The national fund drive is a joint initiative of the Government of Liberia (GOL) and development partners, aimed at addressing the ever-worsening plight of at-risk youth in the country, to not only ensure a better future for thousands of citizens in this category of the population but also ameliorate socioeconomic and security risks they pose to the country.

   Taking place at the Ellen Johnson-Sirleaf Ministerial Complex in Congo Town at 10:00 a.m., the fund drive is being held under the theme, “Reclaiming Our Youth for a Better Liberia”.

   Dignitaries expected to participate as key contributors to the program include all UN agencies, foreign embassies, the World Bank, the African Development Bank, the International Monetary Fund (IMF), international non-governmental organizations (INGOs), state-owned enterprises, corporate entities and the civil society.

   The Liberian Leader is expected to underscore the deplorable condition that unfortunate young people of Liberia are enduring, the evil of drug and substance abuse, and motivate citizens, businesses, development partners and diplomats see the exigency of working together to save a whole generation of the population rendered depraved by circumstances.
