After returning to Liberia, in 2007, for the first time since fleeing the country to become a refugee in Guinea, Côte D’Ivoire and then the United States several years later, he quickly discovered the gaps in the development activities in the country. While many programs were being implemented with great intentions, they lacked local context. These gaps led to programs failure or limited impact.

Having experienced the devastation of the civil war and seeing and living in poverty, Taa developed a passion for development, especially empowering youth and women. This led him to co-found The Khana Group with a focus on positively transforming and impacting lives through programs and systems strengthening. TKG achieve this through conducting research and evaluations to inform programming decisions.
