It has been really impressive to watch Saran Kaba Jones and her team grow Face Africa. As a business owner, one of the things I know is the challenge of growing a business from ground up. When the business is a non-profit, the challenges are even harder. In Saran’s case, not only has she done a remarkable job growing her business, there have been extensive solicitation of funds to realize the Face Africa dream, something not new to most non-profits. In addition, her travels (international) have been rather extensive over the years, again a major sacrifice to help the people of Liberia obtain clean water. Thirty (30) completed projects later and six current pending ones, there is much to celebrate about Face Africa.
Indeed, I am particularly proud of our community of Ladybrille (brilliant women), your resilience, determination and focus to achieve what usually seems like the impossible when you share your startup ideas with many.
