The New Dawn Liberia highlighted the successful launch of the Ellen Johnson Sirleaf Presidential Center for Women and Development, which drew attendance from current and former heads of state and senior government officials from across the continent.
The article highlighted Sirleaf’s impetus for launching the Center and its flagship program, the Amujae Initiative:
