Ceasefire Liberia: Rising African Voices

Nat Bayjay is the Project Manager of Ceasefire Liberia:
Ceasefire Liberia is a multimedia project to put Liberian Diaspora in touch with what is happening at home. Liberia is recovering from 14 years of Civil War.

Ceasefire is trying to bridge the gap between Liberians across the world and those who are still at home.
from Muhammad Karim - GV Citizen Media Summit
It is a Rising Voices initiative of Global Voices:
Ceasefire Liberia ... aims to document the Liberian experience on both sides of the ocean. It includes a book, documentary film work, and now a blog. The goal of the blog is to connect the Liberian community in Liberia with the rest of the Diaspora in order to create a dialogue between those who fled during the war and those who remained.
About Ceasefire Liberia
My video of Nat's presentation to the recent Global Voices Citizen Media Summit in Santiago, Chile is available at Th!nk3: Developing World. It was an inspiring moment. In Nat's words, it's "beyond the ordinary"!
