Charleson reminded the gathering that the Foundation aims to break the vicious cycle of poverty and social isolation in Liberia, beginning with Voinjama, Lofacounty, and to restore hope for a better future.
According to Charleson, every person in Liberia has the right to access resources and opportunities in order to live and develop with dignity and to become an active and contributing member of the society.
Meanwhile, the Yelobah-Cares Foundation has also contributed Sixty Thousand Liberian dollars to authorities of the Kpademai Public School in Lofacounty for the upkeep of the school; while at the same time providing support through financial aid for deserving students.
The Yelobah-Cares Foundation, which was launched early this year, seeks to inspire hope, improve lives; and empower the underprivileged.
According to the Country Director, they are working for the empowerment, social development and integration of underprivileged people and communities in Liberis, with particular focus on Lofacounty.
Charleson intimated that rather than continuing the cycle of handouts and poverty that has stunted Liberia’s growth since its foundation, they seek to provide the first step to true development by helping the poor meet the most basic of needs that prevent them from reaching their God given potentials.
He said, the Yelobah-Cares Foundation is involved with the economic empowerment and social development of underprivileged persons and communities in Voinjama, Lofacounty as a way of impacting the overall development of Liberia, as well as assisting in the process of social integration and personal realization of underprivilegedchildren, young people, adults and families.
The Foundation assured the citizens of Lofa county that it will continue to keep engaged with the goal of making measurable change in the lives of underprivileged people in the county and the country at large.
