What Is The Dr Malachi Kobina York Foundation?
The Dr. Malachi Kobina York Foundation is an organization that finances educational support to african children, especially those who are orphans or disabled such as the blind, deaf, or autistic. The foundation has branches in Ghana, Gambia, and Liberia. The organization has helped and was grown out of the African–American & West African Educational Endowment & Humanitarian Foundation founded principally in 2000 by Rev. Dr. Malachi Z. York.
The Dr. Malachi Kobina York Foundation was established in 2005 to continue the great works of H.E. Dr. Malachi Z. K. York, the philanthropic drive and humanitarian assistance of providing clothing, shoes, school supplies, food and other needs of various schools and institutions form under privileged West African families and orphanage particularly in Ghana and Liberia, and other countries and villages in the region. This international non-profit foundation is now established in Monrovia, Liberia and is making its way to Senegal and Gambia.
The Dr Malachi Kobina York Foundation is currently examining how it can help the ACDEP (African Children’s Digital Entrepreneurship Project) at the SDA (Seventh Day Adventist) Primary School in Buoyem, Ghana.
The project aims to teach a group of 10 – 13 year olds, how to become digital entrepreneurs in the fields of:
Stock Market Trading
This project is being run as most of the people in Buoyem, Ghana , are farmers and they do not have alot of money or easy access to technology.
Although farming is a noble profession, where these children live, it does not pay well.
The children will grow to become farmers too and the poverty cycle will not end.
The ACDEP initiative aims to teach the children digital entrepreneurship to the children, so they can escape poverty using technology.
With the skills of website design and ecommerce, this pilot group of 11 to 13 year olds will be able to grow their produce and market it online globally.
They will also learn the valuable specialist skills of stock market and forex trading.
After the project is completed ACDEP will then further help the school buy an additional 70 computers to make a total of 80. 1 PC per 2 children.

Students, staff and administration at the School for the Blind in Virginia, Lower Montserrado County all have reasons to smile as the Malachi York Foundation, in collaboration with LIFESPAN LIBERIA on Wednesday, December 19, 2018, gave them rice, cash, canes or walking sticks, as their Christmas gifts.
In his presentation of 84 white walking canes, several 50kg bags of rice, tins of sardines, and toys to the administration of the school, the president of the Malachi Z. York Foundation, Den Tut Rayay, said the gesture was the foundation’s own way of identifying with the disabled community in the country during the festive season.
Mr. Rayay added, “as Sabaeans, we are taught to shoot for the stars, and it is a dream come true to be in Liberia fulfilling the dreams of Marcus Garvey, and many of those that came before us and, very interestingly, we are here continuing the works of Dr. Malachi Z. Kobina York.”
He said he and his colleagues are in the country to ensure that the philanthropic and charitable works of Dr. Malachi Z. York, which are fond of making good men better, continue undauntedly.
“It’s a blessing to be in Liberia, the country in this part of West Africa that is considered by us, the indigenous African-Americans living in the United States, as the door of return,” he said.
