EWMI Programs in Liberia
EWMI takes pride in its commitment to its local partners, and established the Partner Legacy Support Program in 2013 as a mechanism to continue to fund its partners around the world. To date, EWMI has accepted donations from individuals, foundations, and donor advised funds for partners in Cambodia, Kosovo and Liberia that promote access to justice for the most vulnerable groups in various political, economic and cultural contexts.
After 14 years of civil war, Liberia continues to face many challenges in establishing a peaceful society. To help mitigate potential conflicts, EWMI, in partnership with Prison Fellowships Liberia (PFL), launched the C-DRILL Program. This community outreach and mediation program, funded by USAID, sought to educate community leaders and the public on the benefits of mediation to mitigate conflicts, provided mediation services to community members, and used mediation to address the overuse of extended pretrial detention in the country.
