As Liberia celebrates its 10th anniversary of peace in 2013, I wanted to explore the lived experience of the next generation of girls growing up in Liberia’s post-war reality. Specifically, I focused on girls living in West Point, one of Monrovia’s most notorious slums. The issues they face on daily basis are an everyday reality for most of the urban population: access to safe drinking water and electricity is restricted, and the sanitation infrastructure is almost nonexistent. However, I think it important to also highlight the hope and resilience evident in the lives of these young girls as they continue to fight to improve their prospects with the help of organisations such as ‘More Than Me’ (https://morethanme.org), which provides them with a safe environment to develop and play, and with scholarships to complete their education or THINK Liberia (http://thinkliberia.com) which offers unique help and support for young survivors of abuse and gender based violence
