On my arrival for the first time in Liberia it didn’t take very long to feel at home. This was largely in part to the warm welcome I received from Youth Crime Watch. They opened the doors of their homes and showed us around the city with an invaluable insider’s perspective.
So many foreigners come to Liberia and get stuck in the NGO – International agency bubble. Youth Crime Watch of Liberia through it Experience Liberia program made sure that we got to know locals and the particular urban culture of Monrovia.
I am a music producer and DJ, and Zuo Taylor’s deep connections in the Liberian music industry allowed me to complete the first compilation of Hipco music available for international distribution. Without their help this would have not been possible.
