our history

Over three years ago when we first formed The Joy Foundation, we needed a place to grow our seeds of contribution to the global community. Today, we are proud to showcase our schools and church ministries both in the US and West Africa. Our seeds have blossomed into thriving institutions and ministries reaching thousands around the world.
