NAWOP Building Capacities of Women

By Wellington G. Patrick

SANNIQUELLIE, Jan 30 (LINA) -The Nazarene Women Project (NAWOP) has renewed its commitment to build the capacities of Liberian girls and women to become self-reliant and productive to contribute to Liberia’s Poverty Reduction Strategy (PRS).

Speaking to a cross-section of journalists in Ganta on Wednesday, NAWOP Coordinator Edith N. Boyou, reported that the church-based project, which was inaugurated in 2009, has trained and graduated 111 girls and women in different skills.

She said the trainings are offered free-of-charge in baking, tie-dyeing and soap making, and awards three, six  and nine months diploma and certificate courses.

Madam Bayou disclosed that the training targets church women, widows, street girls, marketers, and school-going girls wishing to attach skills to their academic endeavors.

Meanwhile, the Coordinator of the Nazarene Women Project is appealing to donors, NGOs, and the government to support the institution’s mission of attaching value and skills to Liberian women and girls for improved livelihood.
