Monrovia – A Liberian humanitarian and founder of the Faith Foundation Liberia is participating in the Dubai Leadership Summit on Growth and Sustainability Strategies in which he intends to promote humanitarian work for the underprivileged and provide more educational support to people living under difficult circumstances in his country and elsewhere.
Ambassador Dr. Paul Sky Berry, who is set to speak at the Dubai Leadership Summit, his foundation is providing scholarship to 500 Liberian students all in private schools and universities around the country.
Dr. Berry, who is an official at the United Nations, said he was invited to the Dubai Summit based on his leadership and humanitarian contribution in Liberia and other parts of the world.
In October 2019 his Faith Foundation Liberia Charity brought in three professional professors and trainers in international leadership where they hosted the biggest leadership seminar in Monrovia, over 1400 participant received certificates in management and leadership.
Dr. Berry’s Faith Foundation believes that no child was born to suffer that is why they are providing for children living under difficult circumstances.
In an interview with this newspaper he said, “Unprivileged children are part of the future and they are the people we are depending on for sustainable growth of institutions that will transform the world and make it a better place.”
According to him, this is why his Foundation is supporting them to have a brighter future; adding: “We must teach and transform them. If they get the wrong teaching they are going to have nothing to contribute to the future.”
For 14 years, he and his team have expanded educational opportunities to reach the most marginalized children and families living in remote locations. His foundation helps them access and complete academy education. Some of the beneficiaries are provided with vocational training.
The foundation hosts yearly back to school program, which includes various competitions that give young students the opportunity to win, cash to purchase uniforms, books and other school equipment in preparation to head back to schools. Few years ago Faith Foundation purchased over US$32,000 amusement park playground materials. These materials are mobile; the foundation takes them around the country to support underprivileged children.
The children play and learn at the same time; Faith Foundation provides children’s fun party materials through its partners Dr. Cox, the founder of Cox Evangelistic Ministries in the USA. Dr. Cox and Dr. Berry are associated with other partners from states all around the US.
Faith Foundation Liberia is turning commitments into concrete actions by collaborating with Cox Evangelistic Ministries and other international experts around the world to trigger significant breakthroughs in reaching underprivileged children.
The Foundation and Cox Evangelistic Ministries are building innovative relationships with a wide range of partners who all have a stake in realizing the aspiration of Education for children living under difficult condition.
