BOPOLU CITY, Feb 1 (LINA) – About 169 youths in Gbarpolu County have benefited from the Liberia Youth Employment Program (LYEP) launched by President Ellen Johnson-Sirleaf in 2013.

Making the disclosure to the Liberia News Agency in Bopolu City recently, the county Program Monitoring and Evaluation Officer, Jango Kanneh said the project is being implemented in four communities. 

He named the communities as, Central Bopolu, New Bopolu, Dark Forest and Bondi Community.

He said 110 beneficiaries of the program live in Bopolu City, while 50 are in Gbarmah District, Gbarpolu County. 

According to Mr. Kanneh, the project is divided into four components which he named as waste and sanitation management, vocational, health and vocational skills training.
