    Proceeds from the sale of lots 47 – 51 will go directly to the Ellen Johnson Sirleaf Presidential Center for Women and Development. The mission of the Center is to promote women's participation and leadership in society, engage in global conversations to address challenges faced by women and girls, and to identify and implement solutions to enhance female empowerment.

    Ellen Johnson Sirleaf is the former President of Liberia and winner of the 2011 Nobel Peace Prize, together with Leymah Gbowee and Tawakkol Karman, "for their non-violent struggle for the safety of women and for women's rights to full participation in peace-building work." She is a crusader for the Liberian people and has dedicated her life working to make positive change across many boarders.

    Sirleaf’s vision for the Center is conveyed in her acceptance speech for the 2017 Ibrahim Prize for Achievement in African Leadership: “By choice, I have led a life of service and sacrifice on behalf of the Liberian people, and I will remain forever grateful to them for the privilege to serve. As the first woman to receive the award, it is my hope that women and girls across Africa will be inspired to reach for their true potential, to navigate the challenges, break through barriers, and to pursue their dreams. Where there is a first, there comes a second, and a third, and a fourth.

    The funds will be devoted to the Center’s focus on girls' empowerment.
