KAKATA, May 4 (LINA) - About 50 youths from three counties are attending a three-day national youth training and capacity-building workshop in Kakata City, Margibi County.

The workshop, organized by the Carter Center’s Access to Justice Project, is focusing on strengthening traditional leaders, dispute resolution, budget law and the Constitution, according to the Liberia News Agency.

Speaking at the opening session, Carter Center Deputy Chief of Party, Pewee Flomoku, said participants will be drilled in domestic relations of Liberia, freedom of information, criminal justice system and conflict resolution methods.

He called on Liberian youths to assume leadership responsibility and engage state actors so as to create conducive working relationship with their respective community leaders.

Earlier, Acting City Mayor of Kakata, Eddie Murphy, welcomed the participants and assured his unflinching support to the workshop, saying, “I was once a youth leader who has now taken on a national assignment.”
