KAKATA, February 20 (LINA) - An international Non-Governmental Organization, Winrock-Action to Reduce Child Labor (ARCH) project, has donated a consignment of school furniture and uniforms to the Ministry of Education.

With funding from the United States Department of Labor (USDOL) the items cost US$55,997 and were donated through ARCH’s local offices in Margibi, Nimba and Montserado Counties.

The items include 500 arm-chairs, 200 teachers' chairs and tables, 150 pieces of blackboards and 3,937 sets of school uniform.

Giving an overview of the Winrock-ARCH projects during the presentation recently in Kakata, Margibi County, Project Director 

James Yekeh said the project is devoted to supporting efforts to reduce child labor in rubber growing areas of Liberia, mainly Margibi, Nimba and Montserado Counties.

According to him, ARCH is a three-and-a-half year project to promote improved policies that will adequately address child labor in the rubber producing areas of Liberia.

He said it is also intended to enhance monitoring and enforcement of improved child labor policies and support direct delivery of services to children between the ages of five and 17 years engaged in or at risk of various forms of child labor.

They then called on other non-governmental organizations in the country to emulate the good gesture of Winrock-ARCH.
