Stories from Liberia
In Liberia more than 18.000 men and women have participated in a CBS group. A female participant shares the following: "Close to my home is an unused plot of land, which is not a safe place. I became aware of this when we discussed about safety in the group. Thanks to the CBS, I became bold enough to go to the community chairman and ask him if I could use this land so that it becomes a safe area again, which he accepted. Many participants also mention that they learnt how to deal in a peaceful way with conflicts in the family and in the community, and with anger: I used to be quickly vexed. But now I know that this is not helpful and I manage to stay calm and to talk it over."
