VOINJAMA, May 3 (LINA) -In an effort to buttress Government’s education program, the African Development Corps, formerly known as Vision In Action, is distributing 3,342 assorted textbooks to 13public schools in Lofa county.

The textbooks donated by “Books For Africa”, a group of philanthropists in the United States, were brought into the country by The Sir Emeka Offors Foundation-Nigeria.

Public schools to benefit from the donation include Bambodu and Kporlormin Elementary Schools in Foya District, the Kolahun Elementary, Ngorkorhun Elementary and Junior High schools in Kolahun District, Samodu and Barkedu Elementary and Junior High schools in Quadou Gboni District.

Others are J.W.A. Richards, Voinjama Public School, Zawordamai Elementary and Junior High, Jaryanmai Elementary and Junior High, Tellewoyan Elementary and Junior High, Voinjama Multilateral High and the Lofa County Community College all in Voinjama District, Lofa County.

According to the Liberia News Agency, the 3,342 assorted textbooks cover Mathematics, English, Literature, History, Science and Geography as well as some simple readers.

Africa Development Corps is an America-based organization that started implementing education programs in Lofa and Maryland counties two years ago.

At the beginning of the distribution in Zawordamai Thursday, the Ministry of Education Monitoring and Evaluation Officer assigned to Lofa County, Mulbah K. Roberts, thanked the organization for the gesture.

According to LINA, Mr. Roberts urged school authorities benefiting from the donation to utilize the books for the intended purpose, saying any school authority found selling these books would be dealt with according to law.

For his part, the Zawordamai Public School Vice Principal for Administration, Peter Gizzi, expressed optimism that beneficiaries would make maximum use of the books, noting that the books would enable them do their  assignments and cope with their class work.
