Margibi County, Liberia, February 28, 2024 – An international multipurpose organization, Global Village Connections (GVC) has officially been launched in Liberia.

The group was established in 2019 by Mr. Jackson Dukpa from Buthan. Its sole purpose is to unite the world through farming, education, health, entrepreneurship, arts and culture, among others.

The launch occurred in Konola, District# 5, Margibi County recently with more than 500 people represented from different counties in Liberia. 

Indoor activities of the program were followed by a parade of women and men, including farmers, entrepreneurs and many other professional people from Kissi Camp Community to Mars Yard in Kolona along Weala highway in the county.

Providing an overview of the organization, its president, Sylvester Lepolu said the group was established with a clear vision and mission of serving humanity unconditionally and bringing about global transformation for a better world. It also serves as a vehicle of hope for the weak and voice of the voiceless, he added.

Mr. Lepolu stated that GVC’s mission entails so many things including achieving zero hunger in Liberia by 2028. This he said will be done through community farming, supporting small farmers and creating market connectivity to ensure a balanced global food supply.

The group also seeks clean and green earth mission by 2035 thru trees planting and land regeneration, implementation of safe and smart waste management, protection of the natural eco- system and creating green and clear energy initiatives.
