Higher Ground International is a vibrant and dynamic 501 (c) 3 tax- exempt non-profit NGO, which offers a “New Thinking” in providing supports and opportunities for the up-liftment of women, youth and young adults who are former child combatants, orphaned and disabled in the region of West Africa, Liberia and Sierra Leone. We also support those who have immigrated to the US, through the provision of advocacy, rehabilitation, shelter, skills training, education and employment creation. We endeavor to become partners with these women and young people as we help guide them in achieving their life’s goals of independence and self-determination.
