Who is Joseph?

Joseph B. Dorbor is the Founder and Executive Director of Computer for Kids International, Inc. He has over 10 years of experience working as a volunteer, administrator, and program coordinator for several humanitarian and educational organizations in Liberia. He holds a Bachelor of Science Degree in Economics from Cuttington University and a senior candidate for the master’s degree in education administration and Supervision from Cuttington Graduate School and Professional Studies, Monrovia-Liberia.

In November of 2017, Joseph and his family moved to the United States of America as permanent residents. Endowed with so many opportunities to pursue his American Dream, Joseph would have done all to enjoy such a self-fulfilled life. But one fundamental thing stuck in his mind as he left the soil of Africa – the compounded challenge of life in Africa for average people. The memories of these challenges live in his mind since he himself experienced such a life in Liberia. 

Joseph was about 10 years old when Liberia was engulfed in what would turn out to be one of Africa’s deadliest civil wars. That had a devastating impact on Joseph’s youth and thereafter.             

Experience

Joseph has had several experiences working in administration, finance, and program in several institutions. He began his volunteer service as an Administrative and Finance Officer at the Community Development and Research Agency (CODRA). During his service in this role, he managed funds from World Bank, UNDP, and IREX (USAID Program).

He later served as school manager at Alexandria A. Andrews Academy aka AAA. A high school funded by an American businessman and philanthropist with a heart of gold. He enjoyed one of the best professional relationships he has ever had with a supervisor during the time he served the institution. His supervisor in person of Kevin said this about him to a lawyer, “Joseph has been a valuable resource to us as he has managed a number of our financial issues and done reports on behalf of AAA, and also a Farm Project we started …, and some work done with Last Well another NGO that we have an association with.” This underscores Joseph’s commitment to accountability. While serving the institution, he developed a school financial management system that enabled the school’s administration to make financial decisions from an informed position based on actual data and as well as improve transparency and accountability in the management of school funds.

Before leaving Liberia, Joseph worked as the Administrator at Cuttingtion Junior College, an Administrative Assistant role to the Vice President of Administration at Cuttingtion University.

During these years, he has had several professional trainings and mentorships including Development Education Leadership Team in Action (DELTA) by the DEN-L, Project Cycle Management training by IREX, Proposal Development by International Alert, mentorship in Strategic Planning by DEN-L and IREX, mentorship in Financial Management System by IREX.
