Survivors’ Truths Liberia takes an innovative approach to building peace and promoting reconciliation by using technical innovation to support locally-led processes of conflict resolution.
Every culture has traditions for resolving differences and making plans for communities. These approaches are naturally more familiar, accessible, and quickly implemented by local people than imported interventions. Liberian culture has many strong traditions that are contributing to locally-led peace but these efforts are not always visible or well understood by donor countries who are investing in Liberia's long-term stability.
Based in the knowledge of story's power to heal and connect, Survivors’ Truths Liberia helps Liberians push locally-relevant peace and reconciliation forward by connecting their knowledge and traditions with technological resources.
We have already produced a powerful photo exhibit and book that have been shared around the world. In addition, we helped to broadcast compelling radio messages before and during Liberia's 2011 election. In 2013, Survivors' Truths Liberia was formally registered with the Liberian government to enhance our ability to collaborate with others working to build Liberian 'peace from within."

Survivors' Truths relies on the generosity of individuals who share our commitment to bringing the best of social service and social media together to discover new possibilities and promote positive social change.
Right now, our goal is to raise $15,000, which will cover our basic operating costs for 2017, allowing us to continue promoting our work with war survivors, transgender youth, and others. A little goes a long way! So, whether you can make a one-time donation or a monthly commitment, your donation counts!
For a limited time, every $50 or more donation will receive a copy of our beautifully photographed book 'Stories of Pride and Peace', full of inspirational stories and photos of survivors in Liberia. Use it as a coffee table book! Or gift it to family members and friends!
Please help us make this fundraising drive a success by asking your friends to join you in supporting the work of Survivors' Truths.

Now, more than ever, TransYouth Speak (TYS) is an essential resource for youth who identify on the gender spectrum. With recent moves to limit LGBTQ+ rights in some parts of the country, TYS is looking to extend our online reach and be a support to more youth regardless of location.
We are currently all-volunteer, so we are able to do a lot with a little. We need to raise $10,000 to keep our program going and build our social media presence in 2017.
TransYouth Speak's innovative work is funded through the generosity of individual donors and philanthropic circles. Your donation will support youth leaders to:
- Provide supplies, food, and transportation for group meetings and working sessions
- Participate in local and regional conferences
- Produce media and materials - printed 500 copies of our 'zine Parrotfish and were gone in days!
- Provide trainings to organizations and groups working with transgender and genderqueer youth
- Provide support and referrals to youth and their families
Whether you can give $5 or $5,000, we will put it to good use! Thank you for your support!Donate
