We work alongside our local communities to develop specific objectives as well as building capacity and resilience in these communities.
Welcome to our community projects page. Here you will find stories, photos and updates from our local community projects in Liberia. You will also see how other communities are connecting and supporting our activities. You to can help support and maintain these and other new projects by clicking the donate button below.
The Koinonia Trust Little Market
Marthaline one of the graduates is making her plantain chips to sell on a stall outside our compound. A women living beside us is selling water, cookies, cucumbers, sugar cane. The little market is an example of the community projects set up by The Koinonia Trust. Marthaline inspired the Little Market idea.
The Koinonia Trust Football Club
Thanks to Terri who knit the Easter chicks we were able to start our football club with bibs and a small amount of training gear. This summer thanks to The Mandala Trust we were able to kit them out and get more equipment. This was indeed a great blessing.
There are 30 youth coming for training three times a week. Each time they train they have a time of thanksgiving and prayer beforehand. Our coaches (Reuben and Morris) are not just training them in soccer but make themselves available to encourage and mentor them.
Some of these young men have been displaced from their families who live in rural parts of Liberia. They are sent up to the city to make their own way in life. We are providing a safe place for them to come too, meet and enjoy playing soccer. We are encouraging them to lean on God and one another as they grow into adulthood. As the club develops we will be facilitating workshops on health (spiritual, emotional, mental, physical and social), leadership skills and trauma healing groups for them.
The Koinonia Trust Choir
Thanks to the support of The Mandala Trust we were able to gather the young people together to form a choir. We have a few volunteers who are helping lead them. They are now beginning to form.
