Saran Kaba Jones is the Founder and Executive Director of FACE Africa, a Massachusetts based nonprofit that funds and supports sustainable clean water, sanitation and hygiene projects in Liberia.
Saran was born in Liberia but left in 1989 at the young age of
eight, shortly before the country's civil war began. The daughter
of a career diplomat, Saran spent her formative years living in
Cote d’Ivoire, Egypt, France and Cyprus before making her way to
the United States in 1999. She returned to Liberia almost 20 years
after she left to find a country in desperate need and made it her
mission to help, specifically focused on access to safe drinking
water and empowering women through education and skills
Since launching FACE Africa in January 2009, the organization has raised over $250,000 for clean water projects in Liberia. In recognition of her commitment to clean water initiatives that have benefited over 10,000 residents in Liberia to date, Saran was recently appointed Goodwill Ambassador for the county of River Cess, Liberia. In her new role, she will encourage and promote business and philanthropic investments throughout the county, beginning with FACE Africa's 'County by County’ Commitment, which will seek to construct 250 clean water wells in River Cess County by 2017.
