Why Now: On August 18, 2013 Liberia is poised to celebrate 10 years of sustainable peace after a 14-year civil war (1989-2003). With growth development and process over the past decade much work remains. In 2017, Liberians will vote for the next president. Liberia’s youth represent 60% of the current population and their involvement is critical. They must be properly educated and empowered to maintain and support the democracy, peace and stability Liberians have come to enjoy. About the Liberia Bus Project: The Liberia Bus Project is a volunteer driven democracy initiative for young people that aim at driving change in Liberia. This effort serves as a platform to ensure that young Liberians are actively involved in transforming the political system for the interest of Liberian citizens. Birthed after the Oregon Bus Project, the Liberia Bus Project, seeks to make real political change and empower a whole new generation in democracy. http://www.facebook.com/events/177387175772320/
