By Comfort Johnson, Intern

MONROVIA, Feb 2 (LINA) -The National Bureau of Veterans Affairs in partnership with the Ministry of Agriculture and the Chinese Agriculture Program at the Central Agriculture Research Institute (CARI) in Suakoko, Bong County has trained seventeen veterans in agriculture.

According to the bureau’s 2013 Annual Report, 14 males and three females underwent training in Animal Husbandry, Rice Production and post-Harvest Technology, farm machinery and mechanization, vegetable production and root and tuber crops production.

According to the report, the project will help the Armed Forces of Liberia (AFL) veterans realize their goals in life, not leaving out the wives and children of the veterans.

Meanwhile, authorities at the National Bureau of Veteran Affairs are calling for an increment in the Bureau’s budgetary appropriation in the 2014/2015 fiscal year.

They said the increment will enable them undertake meaningful initiatives that will contribute to the growth and Development of the Country.

The report indicated that increment of their budget will also enable them to create a database for all veterans throughout the country and employ nine county coordinators and staff.  

According to the Liberia News Agency, the statement was contained in its 2013 Annual Report which highlights some noticeable features and activities of the Bureau since their appointment.

The report named agriculture and technical and vocational training programs and the extension of farm projects in the various counties as initiatives the National Bureau of Veterans Affairs is engaged in.

According to the report, increment in the bureau’s budgetary appropriation will also empower them to relocate to another area where its staff and employees will be accommodated , as well as  enable them to establish education and scholarship programs for veterans in the 15 political sub-divisions of the country, as well as purchase vehicles for its directors and employees.
