KAKATA, June 12 (LINA) – Margibi County Superintendent John Buway has said the empowerment of women is cardinal to the growth and development of the country’s economy.

He said any society that does not think about the empowerment of its women, especially adolescent girls, runs the risk of stalling the country’s full development and progress.

According to the Liberia News Agency, Superintendent Buway made the statement Wednesday at the Kakata City Hall when he served as guest speaker at an Entrepreneur Fair of the Economic Empowerment of Adolescent Girls and Young Women (EPAG).

EPAG is a project under the auspices of the Ministry of Gender and Development, with funding from the Swedish International Development Cooperation Agency (SIDA).

Superintendent Buway urged every young woman in the country to take advantage of the opportunity to make themselves more relevant to their male counterpart.

He then assured his unflinching support to women and girls in their economic empowerment drive across the country.

Earlier, the Coordinator of the National Adult Education Association of Liberia (NAEAL), Luther Mafaleh, said the purpose of the Kakata Entrepreneur Fair was to create a forum where EPAG business development skills and trainees can interact with private sector representatives to network and receive advice on doing business in Liberia.

The fair was organized by the International Rescue Committee (IRC) in collaboration with its implementing partner, NAEAL.
