Development Fund Gives Karluway Teachers' Quarter
By John Bropleh, Maryland County Correspondent
HARPER, Feb 5 (LINA) - Assistant Development Superintendent of Maryland County, Nathaniel Toe Jr., has turned over a six-bedroom teachers’ quarter to the people of Karluway District in the county.
He said the building, which was constructed upon the request of the people of the district, was financed from the County Development Fund (CDF).
The CDF is an allocation from the National Budget given to each county to undertake projects as decided by a County Council comprising representatives of areas in the political sub-division.
Superintendent Toe said the structure is intended to provide accommodation for teachers assigned in the district.
At a brief ceremony in Karloken on Monday, Superintendent Toe formally declared open the US$34,981 building, which was constructed by the Maryland Construction and Maintenance Company.
He hoped the building would be used to help improve the educational system of the district.
Meanwhile, residents of the district have commended the Government of Liberia for the building which, according to them, will put to rest the problem of accommodation for teachers in the district.
