Our empowerment work covering agricultural development and business skill development is linked with education, medical care, and clean water. It is changing whole communities. Both men and women of all ages are attending programmes to improve agricultural yield and establish new business ventures. Your continued support is bringing a higher standard of living to many village
In 2011, practical Business Empowerment Seminars were held in cake and bread baking, tailoring, bead making and traditional women head gear “gele” tying. The bread making master classes were given by an experienced baker, Mrs Oyelade who showed the villages how to start a small bakery with local equipment.
Many women are unable to afford medical consultation fees or medical treatment even in the cities. The Well Woman Clinic provides free information, advice and medical treatment for needy women.
This was followed by introductory dressmaking classes. A brand new sewing machine was donated for follow-up training sessions which are now in progress.
Another group introduced a new business venture – bead necklace making to the villagers. This is a serious money making venture.
Liberty organises trips to the rural villages where we work. You are welcome to join the team of volunteers, who provide free medical and surgical care, agricultural and business empowerment, work with children and support to teachers and provide counselling to villagers.
In 2011, 35 volunteers from England and 4 from the USA worked with over 200 local volunteers to on the filed trip to Imini in Nigeria.

A monthly contribution or one-off payment towards the cost of digging a well, sponsoring a child through school or evening building a school would make a big difference in the lives of the men and women we meet.
Prayer undergirds everything we do. Everyone is an intercessor but we also a faithful group of volunteers who pray for the success of our activities whilst the team is away. They organise prayer chains, night vigils and various prayer events to support the work. If you are an intercessor, we would love you to join us.
