Kolahun District Youth Constructing Conference Hall

By Korboi Gbelewala, Lofa County Correspondent

VOINJAMA,  Feb 6 (LINA) -Youths in Lukasu Town, Lower Lukasu Clan in Kolahun District, Lofa County, have begun the construction of a modern meeting hall estimated at US$35,000 in Lukasu Town.

Making the disclosure to the Liberia News Agency recently, the chairman of Lukasu Youth Development Association, Alexander Bongorlee, said the project is a self-help youth initiative aimed at bringing development to the town.

Mr. Bongorlee indicated that funding will be provided by the youths themselves through communal farming which they have been undertaking for the past three years.

The youth chairman said even though some prominent citizens of the district contributed toward the project, the bulk of the funding will come from the youths.

He said when completed, the hall will host several facilities, including offices of the town chief, youth leader, women heads, conference hall as well as a space for social activities.

Meanwhile, Bongorlee has disclosed that more than 60 acres of farmland have been cleared by the youth to engage in communal farming to raise funds to complete the construction project.

He is also appealing to Lukasu citizens residing in other parts to help with building materials to buttress the youths’ effort and complete the building.
