Power of Play Film

In 1989, Liberia entered a 14 year civil war. Liberia’s civil war became one of the most notorious conflicts for its use and abuse of child soldiers. Over 15,000 children as young as 6 fought in the war, and were forced to commit some of the most heinous crimes.

The Power of Play will let you be a part of the construction of a better future for Liberian Children. Through personal stories you will experience how a once war- torn country is being transformed through the power of sports.

“We believe that war will not come to this country, again.”
Pastor Roberts, Liberia, 2014
