We help poor people to break the cycle of poverty through education, build healthcare systems in remote areas to help poor people to stay healthier.
The world is drawing faster to globalization and demands all efforts from all citizens to make the world a better place. SAMDA is coming to stay in America, Africa, and the Caribbean to serve underprivileged children and mothers to get access to better education, and other opportunities to improve their lives and that of their families. Many of our kids in these areas have talents and we will develop those talents so that they can help themselves!
We believe strongly that with unity ... success is sure! We are seeing the example in the USA, China, and the EU! As Africans, we too should not sleep until we can learn how to speak with one voice!
As a SAMDA volunteer living in the diaspora, many of us believed that we owe our people back home in Africa or the Caribbean all the help we can offer to improve their living conditions especially having lived in these places in the past and know the daily stories in many households.
Samda-Saclepea-Mah Development Association (SAMDA) is organized exclusively for charitable, religious, educational, and/or scientific purposes as specified in Section 501(c) (3) of the Internal Revenue Code.
The specific purpose of this corporation is to empower and motivate citizens of Saclepea-Mah Chiefdom, at home and abroad, to help them realize their visions, dreams, and aspirations in life, and to accomplish their desire for integrated sustainable development.
SAMDA is dedicated to undertaking projects, providing programs, offering services, and engaging in charitable activities, including microfinance enterprise development, education and community organizing.
SAMDA is a membership organization. Regular membership shall be open to individuals and non-profit organizations that are of like mind and purpose with our organization and to residents of Saclepea-Mah Chiefdom in Nimba County (north-central Liberia) and in the Diaspora in the U.S. and elsewhere.
The regular membership fee is $10 per individual per month. Currently the organization has 25 members. We draw and will draw members through regional offices, use of mass media, and via the internet.
The members of SAMDA have the right to vote upon the ideas imposed by other members and participate in all organization’s activities. Members meet every month to discuss new future ideas on how to provide further assistance to citizens of Saclepea-Mah Chiefdom.
We will create the following four regional offices in the future: Midwest, Northeast, Southeast, and West. Each office will be coordinated by a regional officer appointed by SAMDA’s board of directors and supervised by the central office of the organization. Creating regional offices will raise awareness of SAMDA and its purposes and to draw members to the organization. All major programs, projects, and activities will be conducted and supervised by and through the central office of the organization.
