By D. Ignatius Roberts, LINA Cape Mount Correspondent

ROBERTSPORT, April 15 (LINA) -The Principal of Fahn Badah Memorial Public School in Lofa Bridge, Gola Konneh District in Grand Cape County, John F. Badah Sr., says his administration has finalized plans to construct a US$30,000 annex to accommodate street children in the area.

He said the project is intended to position the school in terms of capacity to remove wayward children from the streets in the district and prepare them for future leadership roles.

Badah told the Liberia News Agency (LINA) recently in the district that portion of the funding will come from the District Development Fund (DDF), while the citizens have agreed to mold dirt bricks as well as provide sand and manpower for the project.

He said the predicament of children who are not in school in the district has claimed the attention of his administration and it has decided to enroll them during the 2014-2015 academic year.

The school currently has six teachers for a student population of 352, comprising 166 girls and186 boys.

In another development, Town Chief Momo Fahnseh of Mano Clan, Gola Konneh District in Grand Cape Mount County has appealed to local and international organizations to assist the district construct hand pumps and latrines.

He said public facilities, including hand pumps and latrines were damaged during the civil conflict and there was a need to replace them.

Chief Fahnseh told the Liberia News Agency (LINA) that due to lack of these facilities, residents are compelled to drink water from creeks and use the bush as latrine.
