Numerous foundations have been formed by Dr. York and his supporters and they still carry on his philanthropic work. The United Nuwaupian Nation, which is a conglomerate of indigenous African Tribes that are acclaimed to have been in the United States prior to European settlement, is a formidable team in the transformation of many lives of less fortunate across the world.
These various foundations are composed of tribal members of United Nuwaupians Worldwide who are Freemasons and Eastern Stars that continue the humanitarian and charitable works of Dr. Malachi Z. York. There are men dressed in black and gold with crowns seen throughout Monrovia over the last 6 months. They are in the country to seek government’s support in getting their teacher, Dr. York, released from jail in the United States.
Accomplishments in Liberia
In the year 2000 Dr. York founded the West African & African-American Educational Endowment & Humanitarian Foundation (registered in 2005) and erected a 9-classroom Elementary & Junior High School, a 12-room Clinic and a Church, in Bong County, about 70 miles from Monrovia to cater to the health, educational and spiritual needs of the people.
This Educational Endowment & Humanitarian Foundation was created by Dr. York and Cllr. Francis Y.S. Garlawulo as a not-for-profit and a non–political organization engaged in humanitarian (health & educational) services. It was founded principally in 2000 by Rev. Dr. York and formally incorporated in 2005 by Mrs. Serena F. Garlawulo and Dr. Richelle D. York, daughter of Dr. Malachi Z. York.
The Most Worshipful Nuwaupian Grand Lodge of Freemasonry Worldwide, of which Dr. York is a member, makes charitable donations to sponsor 100 orphans and supplement/subsidize salary payment and benefits for 19 staff members for the New Hope Foundation Academy in Zayzay Community of Paynesville, outside Monrovia.
Dr. York’s Foundation established in Liberia in January 2017 by Dr. Doosua York (no relation to Malachi), and operating in Ghana since 2007, is a not-for-profit and a non-political organization focuses on providing humanitarian services to the needy in the areas of education, health, sanitation services, agriculture, and general construction.
The Foundation works alongside the New Hope Foundation Academy by sourcing donors and sponsors to help cover its annual rent, paying the annual school fees for its orphans, and facilitating educational and cultural field trips for the students. Earlier this year the foundation covered a field trip on which the students were taken to see the international blockbuster movie, Black Panther.
In addition, the foundation is making available accomplished individuals, including Cletus Kofi Sombe, a Real Estate Developer, and other professionals with expert knowledge on key issues to help develop the students and their respective communities.
The United Nuwaupian Nation, on the need to boost the tourism sector in Liberia, is interested in producing its 2nd Annual Journey Home Festival (AJHF) in Liberia and it is dedicated to reintroducing Africans in America, UK, and the Caribbean to West Africa.
This particular installation of the Annual Home Journey festival will be Liberia’s “The Door of Return (DOR)”. The Door of Return is a new name coined by the United Nuwaupian Nation for the Republic of Liberia, due to its history in embracing the return of Africans from the Americas and the Caribbean.
African Americans reportedly spend $48 billion (Mandala Research, 2011) in travel and leisure, and tend to seek out vacation sites that focus on African heritage. Therefore, the goal for the 2nd Annual Journey Home Festival is for 3000 members of the United Nuwaupian Nation to travel to Liberia in February of 2019 (Black History Month). It is expected that its members, most of whom are investors will spend a minimum of $1000 per person which would infuse some US$3M in the Liberian economy. They expect those numbers to triple in just one year as this will be an annual implementation. This annual coming home festival may bring a lot of economic benefits to Liberia as a sovereign nation.
The Ministry of Foreign Affairs is currently reviewing documentation from the Garlawulo Law Firm, Dr. Malachi Z York’s Liberian attorneys regarding re-engaging the Department of State for the United States to have him (Dr. York) released and repatriated.
