Koha Girls are the daughters of the late Mr. Clement Kemba Koha Sr. and Mrs. Ruth Mamai Phillips Koha, natives of Bolahun, Lofa County, Liberia, West Africa. Our Papa (dad) always called us his girls and encouraged us to "Be an asset, not a liability". That is why we chose to call this organization Koha Girls, Inc. "Be an asset, not a liability" to honor our dad and the values he instilled in us.

"My greatest inspiration for forming Koha Girls, Inc. developed from the way my sisters Phebe, Wia-Mae, Amy, and I have worked together as a team. Our parents taught us to love, care for, and support each other and this is what we have done over the years. This kind of sisterly support has enabled us to achieve most of our goals. Such support is what we desire to provide for girls and women who perhaps have not had the chance to enjoy such in their lives."
