NGO To Graduate Women Trainees February

By David Seedee, Bomi County Correspondent

TUBMANBURG, Feb 2 (LINA) – The Project Officer of the local Non-Governmental Organization, Defense for Children in Liberia (DCL), Madam Helena Wonba, has disclosed that the organization will be graduating a number women after one year of skills training.

Madam Wonba said the organization has been training women, especially young women, in Tubmanburg in soap making and tailoring since March 2013.

Madam Wonba said the skills learned will enable the women to sustain themselves and families and contribute to the various communities in which they live.

She said there are plans to extend the program to other areas in Bomi County.

Speaking in an interview with the Liberia News Agency at the weekend in Tubmanburg, the Project Officer disclosed that unknown persons broke into the offices of the DCL and made away with several office equipment estimated at US$700.

She said the burglars made away with stabilizers, printers and reams of sheets among others, creating a serious setback to the operations of the organization. She said the attention of the police in the county has been drawn to the incident.
