Serve Africa was founded in response to poverty with the goal of improving the quality of life for poor pastors and vulnerable children.
Seventeen years ago, Stephen and Florence Wonbenyakeh were driven to their home village in Liberia due to civil war. During that period, God used the couple to assist some village pastors in planting new churches. As they worked alongside the pastors, they realized that they were serving strenuous circumstances. The pastors had no study materials. They also had no means of income. And majority of them were uneducated. Stephen and Florence also witnessed pastors' kids go to bed hungry daily, slept on bare flood and were usually naked. Because of the severity of their state of poverty, the pastors could not afford to send their kids to school.
In response to this situation, God gave Stephen and Florence a vision to reach out to rural pastors and underprivileged children. Serve Africa was consequently birthed to serve as the vehicle in this effort.
