YATIA WAS FOUNDED
YATIA was founded by
Matthew M. Fred when he was bitterly humiliated by other tribal groups during
and after the Liberian civil crisis, especially when he traveled to the North
and South eastern regions of Liberia. He survived those humiliations and on
returned to his home town in West southern Liberia a vision was borne. It first
started as YATIL (Youth Against Tribalism in Liberia) but he perceived that the
entire continent was been ruined by this great primitive and ignorant behavior.
On September 3, 2006 his dream did not work due to lack of contacts and
financial depression as young Matthew M. Fred was only 22; no one ever look or
listen to what he was saying.Three years later a dream
was reborn and he came up into founding YATIA (Youth Against Tribalism in
Africa) with no assistance from any reputable individuals or organizations.
Hence, YATIA came into being on December 9, 2009 by young Matthew M. Fred and his
colleagues some of whom are victims and witnesses to this global discrimination
