The Joy Foundation is an established 501c(3) nonprofit organization, founded in 2010. The mission of the foundation is building lives through valuable education and programs that encourages, strengthens, uplift and brings joy to the hearts of people everywhere. The Foundation continues to work towards acquiring resources necessary to promote and sustain educational programs and other charitable services that help meet the changing needs of our less fortunate children and families in Africa and beyond.
In December of 2010, Min. Linder Konneh visited Liberia in search of her parents who were very sick. It was during this time that she learned who they were in the community, and how their work of helping other children brought a positive change in many families lives. Min. Konneh worked with her parents and other team of community leaders in continuing what her parents have started.
Having considered the timely season of her visit and with much prayers, the Joy Foundation was launched during a musical concert held in Monrovia Liberia. As a drive to what has been done, the Joy Music Ministry (JMM) team led, by Min. Linder Konneh, and Uncle Varney Gbessay with others went to Redemption Hospital and the Bomi County Hospital to give some charitable donations (of baby supplies) to new mothers as a way to help improve another life.
