Foundation for Peace Building and Democracy (FOPAD)
The Foundation for Peace Building and Democracy (FOPAD) is a registered nonprofit, non-governmental and non-political organization came into being in June 2010, through the initiatives of war-affected youths and some former combatants who subscribed to the process of rebuilding lives after crisis in peace and unity. FOPAD was established as a community based peace and development advocacy group in one of the slums suburb of Monrovia, Samuel K. Doe Community Bushrod Island and is involved with media/public information, gender/women in development. The organization has been conducting human rights and governance training at the community level in order to enlighten the minds of women and youths about ills in society by means of providing essential education. Our existence was initiated as a result of the aftermath of the long existed civil conflict in Liberia that plunged the young people into civil disorder and became perpetrators of mayhem during the war. Our mission is transforming young people through dialogue, participation education and information. This kind of resentment can only be replaced by the "spirit of cooperation" using the proper means of collaboration with existing organizations that are into peace building and development activities both nationally and internationally. Actionaid Liberia was one of our sources of capacity building.
