The Palava Hut
You may be wondering, “What is a Palava Hut?” In Liberia, a palava hut (or palaver hut) is the town’s meeting place. It is a place where guests are welcome, differences are settled, issues are resolved, and communication takes place.


Blogs are the 21st century "palava huts". The ELWA Palava Hut is  a place for a dialogue about Liberia, and ELWA and its community in particular. Everyone can be heard, and visitors are welcome. Join us as we celebrate our heritage, and hope for the future.
