  • The Liberia Project

    We offer adult literacy opportunities, employment training, and guidance for Liberian former male combatants. Our students are males from some of the poorest communities on earth. Pilot program underway: 5 former child soldiers will embark on a mission to open and run (with our help and sponsorship)an office supply/print shop.

  • Liberia After The War


  • Some Facts

    Child Soldiers
    The victims of war are many, especially children who themselves are guilty of having committed horrible and terrifying acts and who suffered horrendous abuses. Over 38,000 child soldiers in Liberia, from ages 7-15, were recruited to fight over the course of the 14 years of war.

  • 85% Illiteracy

    Although the war has ended, the effects continue to impact its citizens in crippling ways. There is over 85% illiteracy in Liberia.  

  • Education is a human right. Please help us help former child soldiers, and boys gain access to literacy through the arts and exciting innovative methods.

    Pa’s Hat Foundation is a 501(c)(3) not for profit organization.
