    I think that it is important to add that we started Joy Foundation Programs while we were Refugees in Ghana, West Africa. We were grately assisted while there by the United Nations and others. The name of our school is listed among Liberian Schools that were established in Ghana. Joy Foundation came into being on June 1, 2004. We had to move because the Government of Ghana wanted Liberians out. Some Liberians were even deported.

  6. Child Evang. Joyce Kamara-Jarry says:

    I am a founder of Joy Foundation International Institute, an Organizatin that has several branches imbedeb such as: Joy Foundation Mission School, Joy Foundation Counselling Initiative,Joy Foundation Women Empowerment Program, etc. Since we moved back home in Liberia,we have not had help and have been asked to leave the building that our school is housed by June this year, as soon as the school year closes.

    We are located on Weaver Street, Du-Port Street, behind Methodist Church, opposit Roland Duo’s Compound. We are desperate and thank God for discovering you. As long as we are gunuine, God fearing and trust-wothy, we are sure that help will come by before school reopens in September, this year. Stay blessed. Joyce.
