Mineke Foundation receives Civil Society 2022 “Outstanding NGO” Annual Recognition award

In 1968, Dabwe Wiah and his Dutch wife Mineke Muilerman settled in an area approximately 18 km from Monrovia (Liberia) to start a farm there. Their dream was to teach Liberians how to grow their own food by educating them about better agricultural methods .
