FAYWEC, (Falika African Youth and Women Empowerment Center), was established in 2006, in the City of Brewerville, Liberia by Ms. Rebecca Falika, to serve displaced youth and abused women as result of the Liberian civil conflict in which over 250, 000 Liberians were killed. This included many husbands and fathers who were normally the breadwinners in the family. Many survivors lost all their worldly possessions. These sad and despicable events forced many young people inLiberiainto destitution and homelessness.
Ms. Falika, an African fashion designer, whose parents hailed fromGbarpolu County, northern Liberia, attended the Lott Carey Baptist Mission School in Brewerville,Montserrado County. She returned to Brewerville,Montserrado County, after 35 years in the United States. For more information on FAYWEC Empowerment Center visit the website http://www.faywec.org
