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.

Mr. Kanneh said the youth will sweep all public facilities, side brush roads, clean drainages and collect garbage.

He indicated that each contractual worker will receive US$4.00 per day for about 20 days. 

Kanneh said only two communities are involved in the program in Gbarmah District, and named the communities as the Old Barracks and Gbarmah Town.
