Our Vision

Our Name 

Koha Girls, we are the daughters of the late Mr. Clement Kemba Koha Sr. and Mrs. Ruth Mamai Phillips Koha natives of Liberia West Africa from Bolahun Lofa County. 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.

Who We Are

My Inspiration

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.

               Just A Little Help 

Sometimes we look too far away to identify people that need our help and support. But most times, the people we need to support are closer than we can imagine. Growing up in an extended family system where our parents were parents to their nieces and nephews, it has become impossible not to do the same when there is a need. Akos is the daughter of Amy, the 3rd Koha Girl. A few years ago, when Amy got sick and was unable to walk and work, it became the responsibility of the rest of us Koha Girls to ensure that Akos continued to attend school and that Amy received the medical care needed to recover. With our help and support, Akos graduated in 2019 with honors from the Orkolili Secondary High School in Kilimanjaro, Tanzania East Africa. She will be attending the University in Tanzania when schools reopen this year 2020. Amy’s health has also improved. This is what Koha Girls, Inc. is all about, helping girls and women thrive to reach their goal despite the obstacles they encounter along the way. ~Ruth Koha James
