Why and How We Started:
In 2006, at an informal gathering of several former students and other friends of Bolahun began discussing the post-war challenges Liberia faced in rebuilding the country. Living conditions were deplorable and children seemed to be suffering the most. Children without the necessary knowledge and skills often get trapped in poverty, creating devastating impacts that can last for generations. After several group discussions and teleconferences, it was decided that BWW be created to assist with children’s education in Bolahun. BWW began by partnering with BAFFA, providing resources to children in Bolahun and the surrounding towns and villages. We modified and adapted our Constitution on June 17, 2017 at the Forth National Convention in Minneapolis Minnesota.
BWW’s headquarters is located in Euclid Ohio, United States of America. BWW has 5 local operating chapters: The Capital Chapter (District of Columbia, Maryland and Virginia Chapter),The Delaware, Philadelphia Chapter (DE/PA), The Midwest Chapter (Ohio Michigan, Indiana, and Illinois, The Minnesota Chapter, and The New York & New Jersey Chapter.
