What is FT?
the situation in Liberia is a grave one, there are MANY orphanages that the government wants to just go away. They don't even meet basic standards to qualify to receive any help. we will be there to help those orphanages, bring them up to the basic standards and then beyond so they are self-sufficient. The wars didn't happen overnight and its not going to be an easy overnight solution. Many who left Liberia when the war began and started a new life here in the US are receiving personal telephone calls from the President of Liberia requesting they come back. One man who is going with us is such a person. He has been appointed by a group of 15 men who live here in Washington to go and see the country and bring back to the group what he sees as the needs of his people.
For self-sustaning farming it is possible to do what is called container gardening which is becoming very popular here in the major US cities. Another is rooftop gardening - although that won't work there in Liberia because one needs a flat roof and because of the rainy season flat roofs don't work.
