About Mineke FoundationMineke Foundation works in Liberia. Our goal is to help people - especially young people and women - to become economically self-reliant. We focus on education and entrepreneurship. We have three projects:
== The Damiefa School is a social enterprise that provides affordable private education from kindergarten through eighth grade. The national Liberian curriculum is complemented by an Art education program developed by Dutch teachers and a Reading comprehension program developed by American teachers for Liberia. It is our ambition to grow the school into a fully-fledged secondary school.
== Our Women's Club is a social educational program of monthly workshops & meetings for women. The workshops deal with topics such as (reproductive) health, women's rights, leadership and sexual violence. The training courses focus on entrepreneurship, supplemented with micro-loans. In a few years we hope to add adult education as well.
== The Resource Center is a multipurpose room with a small library/computer lab with two user groups. On the one hand, these are the children of the Damiefa School, on the other, they are young people between 15 and 35 years of age. Mineke Foundation offers them – both itself and in collaboration with partners – a series of training programs aimed at improving their position in the labor market. The training includes soft skills, entrepreneurship and digital skills.

Mineke Foundation is an award-winning foundation known for its quality and professionalism. We are an accredited local Liberian NGO, vocational school and private (primary) school.
A small, committed and motivated local team carries out our projects in Liberia. The Dutch foundation consists of international volunteers and supports our team in Liberia, among other things with fundraising, social media & communication and knowledge transfer. There is regular contact between the teams.
Our fun and enthusiastic volunteers will make you feel at home quickly! We all work from home and have regular Zoom calls, including with our team in Liberia. Volunteers living in the Netherlands usually meet twice a year. Good to know: we speak both Dutch and English, but speak English during calls & meetings.
Mineke Foundation was founded in 2009 by Tonia Dabwe to build on the work her parents started in Liberia in the late 1960s. The foundation is named after Tonia's Dutch mother who has been missing in Liberia since the civil war.
