Marin County residents Cate Biggs and Nancy Farese recently traveled to the West African country of Liberia. Their mission was to document, through photography and interviews, the work of NGOs (non-governmental organizations) active in the country’s recovery and reconstruction following the bloody civil wars of 1989-2003. NGOs are involved in everything from relief and humanitarian aid, to civil society support, to political and economic development in countries around the world. In Liberia, international NGOs collaborate with local grassroots community organizations, the United Nations, donor countries, and the Government of Liberia to move the country toward sustainable peace and prosperity.
