Network for Empowerment & Progressive Initiatives (NEPI)

According to the Institute for Economics & Peace, the global economic impact of violence is ~ $14.4 trillion and according to the WHO, 200,000 homicides occur among youth, ages 10 to 29, each year. The Network for Empowerment & Progressive Initiative (NEPI) aims to combat youth violence to create safer and more inclusive societies by implementing evidence-backed interventions grounded in cognitive-behavioral therapy, which have shown to decrease crime rates in urban areas by 20-50% in Liberia.
