A generation of boys and girls could not go to school during Liberia’s civil war between 1999 and 2003. Now, as adults, many of these men and women are traumatised and unemployed, desensitised to love and relationships.
For many women, selling sex is now the only way to survive. In Bomi County, community workers estimate that 75% of women with children are single mothers and Liberia’s rate of teenage pregnancy is one of the highest in the world. Hundreds of women have barely a roof over their head and they turn to the streets to make a living to feed their children and to send them to school.
In 'Daughters of War', sex workers tell how they are struggling to cope in the aftermath of war, desperate to educate their children and change the future so the next generation will not be like them.
