Haywood Mission Institute is a Christian institution which was founded in 1931 by Mrs. Manogna (M.C.) Bennette of the Vai ethnic group: who was taken away from Liberia at a very young age as a slave to the United States of America.
Mrs. Bennette grew up in the bowels of slavery, married, bore and reared her children, and became a devout Christian.

Mrs. Bennette, a former slave, had a burning desire to one day return to her native land-Liberia to contribute to her people. In 1931 Mrs. Sarah Barclay, wife of former Liberian president Arthur Barclay, went to the United States of America. During this visit to the U.S.A. Mrs. Bennett had the opportunity to meet and explain to Mrs. Barclay the conditions under which she was brought to the United States. Following this meeting, negotiations for her return to Liberia were implemented, resulting in her return to Liberia and being reunited with her parents, who were Vai Tribe in South-West Liberia. The Haywood Mission Institute would later be founded on land Mrs. M.C. Bennett donated to the organization from the inheritance she received through her Liberian family. Mrs Bennett and Mrs Barclay were early members of the Pentecostal Assemblies of the World, Inc.
