Empowerment Squared has resumed its fundraising efforts to build Liberia’s first library since the civil war. Empowerment Squared’s founder, Leo Johnson, left Liberia following its civil war before coming to Hamilton in 2006 and has taken on this project in hopes of inspiring local Liberians to build the next learning centre. Moreover, Empowerment Squared aims to document every step taken in this project to aid others who seek to build similar facilities. As for the learning centre itself, it will serve 300,000 people in the immediate area and will be built in three phases, including a recreation area and updates to town hall, and its construction will prioritize local Liberian workers and resources.
