The Liberia Crusaders for Peace (LCP) was founded in 1994 as a nongovernmental organization (NGO) and registered in 2001 under the laws of the Republic of Liberia with the Ministry of Planning and Economics Affairs. The LCP aims to provide humanitarian services through conflict resolution; capacity building programs for women and children affected by the prolonged war in Liberia; advocacy and social mobilization in health, education, culture, gender based violence, among others.
When there are crises, the Liberia Crusaders for Peace is one of the first to respond, in most instances volunteering to raise awareness, mobilizing stakeholders, and sometimes donating to people affected by such crises.
Key activities of the LCP center on advocacy for the rights of women and children, promoting behavior change and traditional cultural activities, participatory communication through dialogue, conversation, traditional folklore theatre, music and dance.
These activities are guided by the following key implementation strategies:
Advocacy: By convening meetings that provide the platforms for presenting critical issues and promoting dialogue, education and networking and building consensus to advance on providing access to best practice, professional development and skills building, we also help build capacity and close gaps in knowledge and expertise.
Communication: By providing interventions and innovative approaches that can be effective in reaching diverse audiences include: games, street theatre, community outreach, art, music and cultural activities.
Promotion & Visibility: By collaborating with other organizations, public or private, in carrying out and achieving specific tasks and goals.
