Business community likely to consider increasing cost of power
Liberia suffers from the second highest energy costs and the least developed power grid in the world. This combination functionally eradicates access to electricity for the majority of the country, as even those who have a source for electricity cannot afford it. In response, Partner Liberia has developed a sustainable solar energy program for orphanages and healthcare providers that care for the most underserved communities in Liberia. Partner Liberia is a non-profit organization dedicated to the development of therapeutic respiratory education, implementation of green energies, and sustainability of orphanages in Liberia. We serve this mission through many simultaneous and interconnected projects. This film was created by Scale Storytelling for Partner Liberia.

USAID visits solar systems installed in rural businesses, schools, and clinics under the USAID Liberia Energy Assistance Program (LEAP) that ended in 2009. Lessons learned from their successes and failures are being applied to the current USAID Liberia Energy Sector Support Program (LESSP) that aims to foster development of Liberia's renewable energy resources through developing pilot hydro and biomass projects and building local technical capacity.
Check out this Liberian-made hand pump which uses a hand-crank system to operate a wheel with a cup-laden rope attached to bring water up from the well. It is "quick to spoil" because the rope wears out, and it takes a lot of work and time to draw water. The AfriDev hand pump used by Africa Heartwood Project for our Village Water projects is a more sure technology that makes drawing clean water more efficient and convenient. To learn more about this development project and others, and how you can get involved, please visit our website at http://www.AfricaHeartwoodProject.org. Thank you!
Life in Africa is amazing, Most of all the amount of energy and self motivating attributes and stories are just amazing to hear and experience. I am always touched by every human life on the streets of Africa and beyond. In this video I take a walk to the centre of Monrovia by foot, and along the way I met many inspiring and touching people with many stores to tell. One young lady selling coconut cakes and two young teenagers selling boiled eggs had so many stories to tell me and also at the same time educated me with local way of life.
Liberia is sub-saharan Africa's oldest republic. It was founded in 1822 by the United States for freed American slaves. After almost 200 years of Western influence, Liberians are taking pride in designing their own clothes with fabrics influenced by their African neighbours. And as Jack Zahora reports, these colourful pieces also come with an attractive pricetag. TRT World’s business programme looks at the financial news that affects ordinary people.

After a devastating 14-year civil war that decimated the country and its electric power grid, USAID and other donors launched an Emergency Power Program to bring electricity back to the country and support President Sirleaf's plan of "Small Light Today, Big Light Tomorrow." Working with the Government of Liberia (GOL), donors rebuilt generation plants and transmission and distribution networks to connect and provide electricity service to businesses and households in Monrovia. With little human capacity left in the country to run the Liberia Electricity Corporation (LEC), a private firm assumed management of its operations under an innovative performance-based management contract. USAID worked with GOL to develop Liberia's energy policy and strategy and promote the use of renewable energy,...

Time's 2014 Person of the Year was "The Ebola Fighters." Among the front line people profiled was the aptly described "tornado of energy" Katie Meyler, now 34 and the founder of the educational NGO More Than Me. Meyler, who says empathy is her superpower, founded the organization while visiting Liberia years before the Ebola epidemic swept the country. She was there doing volunteer work and came across an 11-year-old girl named Abigail who was prostituting herself for school fees. Meyler began paying her fees so Abigail could attend school. Abigail had some friends that needed help, too. Soon, the number of girls she was helping outs...
