Liberia: An Open Letter From Diversified Integrated Vocational Educational Foundation CEO, Patrick V. Suomie

My name is Patrick V. Suomie, the Founder and C.E.O. of Diversified Integrated Vocational Educational Foundation, a nonprofit organization established in the state of Georgia, United States, In 2022. I am a Liberian/American, a Soldier, and a Humanitarian. I hold a Bachelor of Science degree in Business Administration with a concentration in Information Management Systems from Purdue University Global. Purdue is an accredited, private university with its main campus in Indianapolis, Indiana. Currently, I am enrolled at Columbus State University, reading Cybersecurity Management at the graduate level. When I emigrated to the U.S. 12 years ago to find a better living, my vision for Liberia was to return home (Liberia) and be a part of the peacebuilding and youth development initiatives. That vision drove me to establish the Diversified Integrated Vocational Educational Foundation (DIVEF). Our mission is to "assure the public of safety by operating a safe rehabilitation facility through professional staff development and effective management." Our vision is to "ensure the public's safety by rehabilitating disadvantaged youths." We've been in the nonprofit business for a while, but our dream to rehabilitate underprivileged youth worldwide, especially in Liberia and neighboring countries, is dear to our hearts. We are doing everything legitimately to raise funding from the proceeds of PATMADA Cleaning Services, L.L.C. (a family-owned business in Georgia, U.S.A.), providing janitorial services to Georgians, business offices, and residential management groups owned and operated by me. We are also open for private and public donations through Paypal and Zelle accounts. We are a tax-exempt entity with 501 (c) (3) status through Internal revenue. Our website, Facebook page, "Diversified Integrated Vocational Educational Foundation," and Instagram account is @divef_org. Secretary of State website: We have secured an acre of land along Robertsfield highway in Margibi County, where our mini rehab center construction work will resume in May this year. We planned on launching the initial phase of the program in April 2027, with at least between 100 to 150 underprivileged youths will be recruited for phase one. Each phase of the program will run for a minimum of two years with comprehensive vocational training programs in Masonry, Carpentry, Cosmetology, Pastry, and Recreational sporting, including volleyball, basketball, and soccer. Finally, we are trying to verify our Facebook page. Still, we must have some articles from renounce blogs or news reporting agencies to have an authentic, verified account. So, I have attached documents to prove what is mentioned here. Here is my number (+1) 470-406-8719. Respectfully, Patrick V. Suomie Founder/CEO DIVEF
