By David Seedee, Bomi County Correspondent

TUBMANBURG, Jan 28 (LINA) - The Coordinator of the Bomi County Youth Center, Mr. George Karnley, has disclosed that the center is engaged in providing computer literacy to its members.

He said 35 youths are currently being trained in computer literacy at the center, after which they will be provided job opportunities.

Speaking in an interview with the Liberia News Agency in Tubmanburg Monday, Mr. Karnley observed that there are fewer job opportunities for individuals who lack computer knowledge in the country.

The Youth Coordinator said the center is focusing on young people who are operators of motorcycles to acquire computer skills, so that they can have alternative means to sustain themselves.

Mr. Karnley said there are seven volunteers in the various districts in the county who are training the young people in different disciplines.

He said the government, through the Ministry of Youth and Sports, provided the center two computers and a solar panel, while the Blue Lake Company contributed six Laptops and six desktop computers, two printers, one photo copy machine, a scanner and six chairs to the center.

According to Mr. Karnley, the students will be trained for three months and will be awarded certificates at the end of the training.

He said 14 of the 35 trainees are females.
