Sub-Regional Forestry School Lacks Supplies

By David Seedee, Bomi County Correspondent

TUBMANBURG, Feb 1 (LINA) - The Executive Director of the Forestry Training Institute (FTI), Mr. G. Garvoie Kardoh, says lack of instructional materials is posing a major challenge to the institution.

Kardoh explained that the lack of a library and laboratory at the institution is hampering the efficiency and effectiveness of instructors at the institution, noting that it was regrettable that an institution like the FTI that is preparing young people for the future does not have these facilitates.

According to the Liberia News Agency, Executive Director Kardoh made the statement at the close of a one-day Retreat Workshop for instructors of the institution in Tubmanburg on Friday.

Mr. Kardoh said partners of FTI and the government should exert efforts to assist the institution with the needed instructional materials to improve the learning environment on the campus.

He said without the library and the laboratory it will be difficult for the institution to impart the required knowledge to the students.

Meanwhile, Kardoh has said that the FTI is expected to commence academic activities on February 3, 2014 with over 60 students in attendance.

FTI is an institution set up to train students from the Mano River Union (MRU), comprising Liberia, Sierra Leone, Guinea and Cote d’Ivoire, in the areas of forestry and related fields.  LINA/DPS/TSS/PTK
