Plan Liberia Building Women Capacity

By David Seedee, Bomi County Correspondent

TUBMANBURG, Feb 6 (LINA) - The Acting Program Manager of Plan Liberia Bomi Program Unit, Alphan Kabba, has disclosed that 100 females are currently undergoing skills training organized by the NGO in Bomi County.

Program Manager Kabba said under the Girl Power Project training is being offered in soap-making, driving and tailoring for mainly girls.

He told the Liberia News Agency on Wednesday in Tubmanburg that the annual training program will span five years, and that at the end of each cycle, the participants will be awarded certificates.

Kabba said implementing partners are Liberia Children Foundation (LCF) and the Youth United for Development Association (YUDA), while Plan Liberia provides the funding.

Meanwhile, the Plan official has also disclosed that the organization is engaged in water and sanitation in Bomi and Gbarpolu Counties.

Kabba said 20 wells were drilled and three latrines built in each of the two counties.

Manager Kabba said funding for the projects came from Europe, especially Norway, the major contributor to Plan Liberia projects.

He, however, fell short of giving the cost of the projects and the amount of the donations.
