BOARD OF DIRECTORS
G. Lloyd Duncan
As the founder and executive director of Dreams Fulfillment Foundation (DFF), Mr. Duncan oversees all of "DFF" programs
in the United States and Africa. He's responsible for fulfilling the organization's missions, developing new programs, and managing
resources for the DFF.
Born in Liberia, Mr. Duncan migrated to the United States of America in August 2001. As a graduate from Bowie State University with a degree in Business Administration, he is pursuing an MBA degree and is currently employed as a branch designee at Capital One Bank.
As a teenager in Liberia, Mr. Duncan experienced firsthand the difficulties and hardships children in Africa go through when it comes to obtaining an education. After reading an article at www.allafrica.com/liberia, he learned that over 60% of Liberia's population was illiterate and over 70% of it was unemployed; he felt the urge to do something that would help reduce the statistics in Liberia with hopes of expanding to other African nations because the problems faced in Liberia are a representation of what the majority of other African nations face. This lead to the creation of what we now know as the Dreams Fulfillment Foundation Inc. (DFF).
Mr. Duncan is inspired by the idea of empowering and serving disenfranchised children and he believes that there is no other cause around the world that he would rather support them to help less privileged children obtain an education. He is committed to creating a legacy doing just that.
Massah Kula Sirleaf
Massah Kula Sirleaf is the third of four children of Dr. Amos M. D. Sirleaf and Mary H. Freeman Sirleaf. Her father is a Muslim by birth, educator, philosopher, and political activist. Her mother is a para-legal, administrative assistant and human resource specialist. She was born in Liberia, West Africa, on November 4, 1980; where her father and mother were also born and grew up and her grandfather was a mason, local business owner, and agriculturalist. In 1982, at the age of two, her mother and father relocated to the United States; where they lived in Prerieview, Texas until the age of seven. They relocated to the state of Maryland where they are prominent and active members of their community and attend the Lamb of God Lutheran Church located in Hyattsville, MD. Her father has taught at many colleges and Universities around the state of Maryland and Washington, DC including his alma-mater Howard University where he received his doctorate in 1999. Her mother currently works at the Howard University School of Law, where her younger sister also attended for two years before later transferring to Morgan State University in Baltimore, MD and received a Bachelor of Science degree in Nursing and is now a registered nurse at the Washington Hospital Center in Washington, DC. Her two older brothers are a business man and an engineer, both traveling the world in search of the greater good.
In 2000, Sirleaf began undergraduate studies at Howard University as a biology major; where she became one of the members of the health professions society and a lab assistant in the Earnest E Just School of biology at the College of Arts and Sciences. While there, she took courses in Biology, Chemistry, Genetics, and Anatomy etc… Sirleaf earned a Bachelor of Science degree in Biology the summer of 2004. In the fall of 2004 she entered the nursing program at Howard University in the college of Pharmacy, Nursing and Allied Health Sciences, where she studied nursing for two years; before branching off to pursue a Physician Assistant (PA) degree in the fall of 2006. She studied PA for one year, before realizing that her true passion for health rested on her love of humanitarianism and globalization. It was in her volunteer work with the American Red Cross that she embraced her love of public health. Sirleaf entered Walden University School of public health, located in Minneapolis, Minnesota in the fall of 2007, where her emphasis was community health, promotion and education.
She completed a public health residency at the Washington Hospital Center’s Washington Cancer Institute. At the Washington Cancer Institute, she coordinated and implemented a strategic approach to “Breast Cancer Awareness” in collaboration with other healthcare professionals. Her approach was focused on how early diagnosis and treatment of breast cancer can increase a patient’s chances of survivorship. In addition, she developed a healthcare curriculum consisting of “Topic Objectives” for a breast cancer course to be implemented and taught at the Washington Cancer Institute. Sirleaf graduated in 2009 with a Masters of Public Health (MPH) degree. In the fall of 2016, Sirleaf entered Arizona State University, in hopes of completing her Doctorate in Behavioral Health (DBH).
Sirleaf is currently not married and has no children. Since pursuing her MPH, Sirleaf has worked with the American Red Cross as an operations services director for four years, before advancing to the human services sector, where she worked for Keystone Human Services for two years (a human services organization under the governance of the Department of Health and the Department on Disability Services located in Washington, DC). Ms. Sirleaf is presently the Interim Director of Homeless Services for The United Communities against Poverty/Shepherd’s Cove Emergency Shelter for Women and Children. From 2010 to 2012 while working with the American Red Cross, Sirleaf researched and pondered on the idea of establishing her own non- profit public health organization.
In 2013, Sirleaf founded K.U.L.A.H. (Keeping United through Love and Awareness of Health) Foundation Inc. With the support and encouragement of her family, friends and colleagues, K.U.L.A.H. is to become a force to be reckoned within the public health and behavioral health arena. In 2014, Sirleaf was asked to serve on the board of directors by her longtime friend and colleague G. Lloyd A. Duncan, Founder/CEO/President of Dreams Fulfillment Foundation Inc., a 501c3 non-profit organization well-known for its great works in the education of children destitute and orphaned in underdeveloped countries; predominantly Liberia, West Africa. “The health of a nation rests in the education of its people”.~ Massah Kula Sirleaf, MPH
