MOE To Train 10,000 Ebola Awareness Campaigners Nationwide
By Calvin Brooks

MONROVIA, September 30 (LINA) - The Ministry of Education (MOE) has embarked on the training of over 10,000 education stakeholders to carry out Ebola awareness in the 15 political sub-divisions of the country.

Disclosing this during a press briefing at the Ministry of Information Tuesday, the Assistant Education Minister for Early Childhood Education, Felicia Doe-Somah, said the ministry will collaborate with the Health Ministry to help train teachers and principals who will carry out vigorous awareness against the Ebola virus.

She indicated that the United Nations Children Fund, World Health Organization and Save the Children are providing support for this initiative being undertaken by the Ministry of Education.

She urged the public to embrace the trainers in their various counties to help prevent further spread of Ebola.

She pointed out that when schools reopen, the Ebola awareness campaign will continue on the various campuses to ensure that students and teachers have a safe environment for learning after the eradication of the disease from Liberia.

The Assistant Minister further disclosed that the MOE will begin the process of learning by radio program on several stations across country.

She noted that this will provide the public the basic understanding about the function and activities of the ministry to strengthen the education sector in Liberia.

Madam Somah clarified that the Ministry of Education has no power to decide when schools will re-open without the central government giving the directive through the Health Ministry.
