HVK Children’s Foundation was founded by Jermoh Kamara, following a trip she took to Ghana where she worked on sanitation and education programs there. Kamara saw firsthand the positive impact these had and was inspired to bring similar programs to Liberia. We started working in Liberia in 2013, registered as a non-profit in Massachusetts in 2016 and obtained its 501(c)(3) in 2018.
We strongly believe that social determinants factors such as where people live, their education status, income, housing, their age and gender, the built environment, and what services are available to them impacts their overall economical, mental and physical well-being.
We exist to meet the needs of women, children, and families in sub-Saharan Africa, Liberia. Our services educate, support and train Liberians so they can achieve economic self-sufficiency.
Each one should use whatever gift he has received to serve others, faithfully administering God’s grace in its various forms.1 Peter 4:10
We envision a Liberia in which women, children and families are healthy, able to reach their full potential and pass this on for generations to come.
We believe in doing no harm and treating everyone with love, respect, hospitality, kindness and dignity regardless of race, religious and political affiliations, gender or tribal and cultural sect. We also believe that we are the hands and feet of Jesus, with a strong responsibility to preserve and promote the gifts of humanity.
