FOUNDERS

Prince and Agnes Cole are the founders and executive directors of the Disability Motivation Network (DMN). Both born in Liberia, West Africa, with physical disabilities, they went through many challenges in their lives that caused pain, humiliation and setbacks. Despite their circumstances, Prince and Agnes did not give up hope. They kept on believing that they could be successful and continued moving forward.

They began sharing their life experiences with others. Their stories of survival, love and a deep faith in God have inspired others and help people from all walks of life know that God has a purpose for each and every one of them.

Looking back at the beginning, and where they are today, Prince and Agnes are passionate about giving back and providing opportunities for children and youth with disabilities in underserved parts of the globe.
