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.
Mrs. Bendu Benson-Dean
Bendu Benson-Dean is a native of the Republic of Liberia and has lived in the United States since 2003.
Her passion for humanity as well as her value for equal and quality education for orphans and less privileged children motivated her to join the Dreams Fulfillment Foundation, Inc. Bendu is currently serving as the fundraising director of DFF.
Ms. Mariah Rogers
As one of the founding members of the Dreams Fulfillment Foundation Inc., Ms. Rogers serves as the Operations Director of DFF. She oversees the "day to day" operations of the organization and works with the executive director.
Ms. Rogers' desire to give back arises as a child living in exile (Guinea); being a beneficiary of aids and relief items sent by the United Nations to Liberian refugees sparked the desire to help others who are less privileged. Her goal is not to save the world, but to leave her mark on it.
Mr. Mark Gendekan
As the Projects Director (Liberia), Mr. Gendekan has been with Dreams Fulfillment Foundation, Inc. since its inception and brings lots of experience from the private sector.
Mr. Gendekan holds a Bachelors of Arts degree in Business Management and is the CEO of TAS Group of companies (imports and distributes local goods). He believes that the vision of Dreams Fulfillment Foundation, Inc. is commensurate with his vision-saving humanity.
