My name is Francis Nyepon. I am the Liberian Director of WACSN. Over the past two years, I have volunteered my services to WACSN through the ingenuity of Maria’s father, the late counselor Lawrence Morgan, former Senator, Minister of Justice, and Chairman of the Ethics Committee of the Supreme Court of the Republic of Liberia.
I am a graduate of Stonehill College in Easton, Massachusetts and Harvard University in Cambridge, Massachusetts. I am a Christian who has accepted Jesus Christ as my personal Lord and Savior who died for my sins and believes He will come again.
Prior to my coming to Liberia in 2003, I worked for the U.S. State Department and the Liberian Government, and have lived in the United States for 30 years. I am a policy analyst and environmentalist. I owned and operated DUCOR Waste Management in Liberia before giving that up to join WACSN as an unpaid volunteer in 2008. I have written numerous concept papers and policy documents for the World Bank, the European Commission and USAID. My organization received numerous grants from these institutions and entities to conduct environmental studies in sanitation, water, solid waste management, and hygiene. My residence is in Boston, where my wife and 2 daughters live, while a third daughter lives in Eden Prairie, Minnesota with Katarina and Nekita Luyken.
