FOYTOM was founded by women residing in the United States, who recognized the importance of having a solid, caring support system, there in good times as well as in bad times, to help meet the social, moral, financial, and spiritual needs of each other and our Liberians back home. FOYTOM stands for “Friends Of Yesterday, Today and Tomorrow,” and we are committed to the advancement and of our Motherland. Our people back in Liberia had to endure fifteen years of civil war and those living in rural areas are most affected, and continued to be underserved.  As we solicit funds from generous donors, and as we volunteer our time and skills, we demonstrate respect for our past by sharing what we can for the advancement of the women and children still living in the rural parts of Liberia, West Africa.
