International music sensation M.I.A. visits post war Liberia to see how child rights advocate Kimmie Weeks is helping young people rebuild their lives and their country. Over the years, Weeks has formed partnerships and led organizations that have provided education to over 1 million students in West Africa, lobbied the disarmament of over 20,000 child soldiers and provided health care to children. With all the hell that 14 years of civil war have put the people of Liberia through, when M.I.A. throws a block party, we see that the spirit of the people has made it through.
